Fun Pages and Games make the subject come alive About the Authors Gayatri Moorthy was a Middle School teacher of Science and Mathematics at the Convent of Jesus & Mary, Delhi for several years before she helped set up the Educational Planning Group, a Teachers' In-service Training Centre at St Xavier's School, Delhi. There she served as an organizer and resource person, conducting a wide variety of teacher training programmes. Her interest in hands-on activities in Science using everyday materials, led to her setting up of the Science Activity Centre at Sardar Patel Vidyalaya Delhi in 1984. A similar project was started in 2004 at Bluebells School, Delhi. She continues to serve as a consultant in both schools. An author of many years , she has written books for both Primary and Middle classes. All of them encourage students to develop thinking skills and carry out simple activities in order to understand concepts more clearly. Vidhu Narayanan received her education in Physics and her teacher training at Delhi University and joined Sardar Patel Vidyalaya over a decade ago. She has been in charge of the Science Activity Centre of the School since then. Keenly interested in hands-on science, she firmly believes that allowing children to "experience" science through a variety of activities, using inexpensive, everyday materials, helps them internalize difficult concepts. Constantly on the look-out for more interesting and fun activities for her students, she has also developed a number of simple games and worksheets which help them practice and reinforce their learning.
