WHAT AND WHY

WHY CAMP CSI?

Curiosity and capacity of scientific enquiry have enabled mankind to progress beyond other species that inhabit earth. As we dwell in a rapid changing technological world, more than ever, our children need to inculcate a scientific temper from an early age. Camp CSI ( Crime Scene Investigation) employs the enthralling route of solving crimes for fostering scientific temper in the participants.

Camp CSI is a foundry of well-crafted crime scenarios and science-based activities that spawn curiosity and forge an analytical mind in the young scientist. The core subjects, language and communication are bundled with a profusion of outdoor adventure activities and riveting team events which will leave any participant with an unquenchable appetite for learning.

About the Campsite

Nestled deep in the Himalayas, the Go Direct Camp CSI is a retreat for adventurers, wisdom seekers and nature lovers alike. Crisp and clear night skies surrounded by a vantage of lush green mountains make it a perfect setting for reflecting on oneself. Apart from hours of outdoor adventure in a peaceful and serene
environment every day, campers enjoy dynamic and dramatic sessions in the Philosopher’s Salon, they reflect on their place in the universe under the starry night skies, feel the aromatic forest air and experience the thrill of frequent sightings of resident mountain birds.

What will the Investigator will take home.?

A better understanding of innovation and science, an appreciation for all things natural, a scientific temperature,  an unending curiosity about how things work and the “BIG PICTURE” perspective of their world is what the camper will take back along with tangible, practical learning such as:

  • An insight into the scientific method.
  • Investigation Techniques in daily life.
  • Building a hypothesis and theory.
  • Building scientific temper.
  • A creative boost and understanding of team-work.
  • Investigating the micro world.
  • Learning to innovate scratch.
