Highlights of MIX 2010
The activities of MIX 2010 were challenging and were conceptualized and designed to test the participant’s interest and strengths in one or more intelligence areas as propounded by Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences
The highpoint of MIX was the unbounded flow of creativity and the display of logical and process thinking that children demonstrated. There was an atmosphere of camaraderie as teams worked together towards common challenges, the exultation of coming up with a great idea or the cracking of a challenge. Quiet confidence and audacious verve went hand in hand. At the close of the day, there were some winners, but on each child’s face was the victory of a day well spent.
Snap shot of some of the events
One of the activities was ‘Josh’ a Functional relay where they had to cross a water hurdle, limbo bars, a tyre trail. Teams from all three divisions tested their flexibility, reflex, balance, coordination and team work.
Think a Thon tested the participant’s logical, interpersonal and spatial intelligences- from creating a toy that could walk, spin or fly, to creating a hot air balloon and designing a boat which can propel itself forward across a body of water- all while using Small Garbage bags, straws, cotton twines, balloons and other scarp materials
Creative Sparks – an activity that tests the linguistic, interpersonal, spatial, musical, logical intelligences saw the contestants mime, create scripts and stage puppet shows.
Wild Wide World was yet another event and it helped test the Naturalist intelligence
Contestants from different divisions created imaginary animals, trees that could support different ecosystems and unique planets.
Colours of Our World and All by Myself were some other activities that helped students explore their areas of strengths as well as untapped skills and abilities
