Ny aya Talent Quest 2013

The Ny aya Talent Quest Event provides a common platform for students in Warsaw to showcase their skills in three different programs such as Arts, Science and Engineering on the 15th of June 2013 at UCSiR Sports Center, Ursynów.

Talent Quest offers a great opportunity for students for ages between 6 to 14 years to exhibit their talent, creativity, concept development and execution, team work and presentation skills in a lively and competitive environment. Specialists in each area will conduct the event with independent judges evaluating each project and presentation. Awards will be presented to winners and each participant certified.

Ny aya Academy was formed in 2011 with the intent of providing alternative education for students in Warsaw and Talent Quest is another initiative to support the student fraternity.

All that students need to participate in this Talent Quest 2013 is enthusiasm. Delegates from various schools across Warsaw have been invited to the event.

 

Objective

All children are naturally motivated to learn and are capable of learning. They are natural learners and knowledge is the outcome of their own interest and activity.

Children learn through interactions with the environment around, nature, things and people-both through actions and through languages. They construct knowledge by connecting new ideas to their existing ideas based on materials/ activities presented to them.

Our objective in conducting the Talent Quest is:

• to provide a forum for children to pursue their natural curiosity and intuition to quench their thirst for creativity;

• to make children feel that science is all around us and we can gain knowledge as well as solve many problems also by relating the learning process to the physical and social environment;

• to encourage children to visualize future of the nation and help them become sensitive and responsible citizens;

• to analyse how science and technology have developed and is affected by many diverse individuals, cultures and societies;

• to develop critical thinking about global issues to maintain healthy and sustainable societies in today’s environment;
