Facilitator: Shamanth Rao
De-facilitators: Abhishek and Salil
Venue: Symbiosis Library.
The workshop was attended by around 40 kids. This is because the 20 from Abhinava did not turn up for some reason. So we had 20+20 from Symbiosis and Muktangan.
The workshop itself went exceedingly well. We found that most(80%) kids really enjoyed themselves, and as usual Shamanth's questions were quite perfect for the occasion.
Points to self would be, ensure that the furniture at workshop location is not a hindrance rather than being useful. Need to ensure that there is enough space for people to huddle around etc. Need to inform schools about this in future. Another thing we need to do is to tell schools that when we say we expect nothing in return, we mean 'nothing'. Therefore, I and Shamanth walked out bearing two handsomely decorated potted plants, which though were wonderful, we quite hard to carry back home for us poor motorcyclists.
Looking forward to the session next Saturday (Salil being incharge). It would be nice if anyone else could drop by to help him - myself will most probably be busy. Ideally we need two people to be at each workshop. That helps immensely.
Also this would be a good place to add, that if any school would like the BCQC to conduct a workshop please get in touch with us at : firstname.lastname@example.org
