Hands-on interactive science is fun. But it is also more than just fun. Research from around the world demonstrates that students learn better, remember more, and do better on exams when taught in hands-on practical ways. Karkhana's research revealed that there are two roadblocks to institutionalizing practical education in South Asia: materials cost too much and teachers are uncomfortable teaching with the material that is available. The visitor will learn concepts related to wheel and axle by exploring a series of questions related to the functioning of a wind turbine. Using material like a paper cup, thread, and hard paper students will make the foo-machine on their own.
