SPACE held 3 day camp for children from  from 6 May 2014 to 8 May 2014. 11 students attended the program. Girls outnumbered boys this time (7 girls)
The first day was on creating stopmotion animation with free software.They were grouped in to 3 and soon came up with different concepts- Volcano eruption, Earth in 2050, Global warming and made animations out of clay and pictures. It was amazing to see how sensitive children were towards environmental issues.
