Our first major event we were involved in this year and it was such a fulfilling experience with the whole crew!
We were handling the science tent at the recently concluded StoryMoja festival held every year, and with the number of schools that turned up it was a joy to see the reading culture is being embraced and encouraged especially to our young ones.
The team, always a happy lot. Never a dull moment with kids or without kids. The girls were in their usual best behaviour.
Spoke too soon.
We were pleasantly surprised at some of the kids who came so eager to learn.
This one boy, brilliant mind, he was allowed to skip two classes. to prove he was, he almost convinced our content creator, Peter, that aliens exist! (We have a video of him stuttering during his counter arguments so don’t deny it Peter! ) Look, at them having the audacity to take a water break waiting for him to answer a question they had just asked him! Oh and he wanted to become an astronaut when he grows up.
We didn’t just teach the kids, grown-ups also visited our tent to try out some of our experiments.
from a mixture of colour, paper lilies, soap bubbles, popping balloons, and our ever enthusiastic crew we all learn’t a lot over the five days. We even let some of the kids teach the other kids. The future is theirs isn’t it?
In the end every friend we made will remain a big part of our family.
Lastly. In the end the boys left early and the girls decided to treat themselves. Next time boys learn, Patience pays!
and we also enjoyed some of the masterclasses and mingle with some of the stars invited
