Yeah!!! It is summer time again, but a very hot summer, this time, the temperature is already hitting 38°C and above already, at least here at our place.
Summer vacations always bring a smile on my face with all memories of my childhood. It used to be a great time of visiting grandma’s house, swimming sessions, family trips, circus shows, magic shows, movies, cricket, house parties and what not!
Yes, this is how a summer vacation looked back in the 90’s and I am sure, most of my generation folks will connect with this.
Time has evolved over past few years and so are the options to spend summer vacations. academic camps and sports preseasons have become more popular and efficient way of spending summers nowadays.
Academic camps are great, as they prepare a child for upcoming classes. But personally, we feel, we should let kids take a rest from academia, at least during summers. They too deserve a break after all!! Sports preseasons is undoubtedly a great way to spend time and remain physically & mentally fit, but it may become very straining in this scorching sunlight for our kids.
Ahhh! So what to do during this Summer?
We believe, a summer camp must develop all the skill sets that a student needs to excel in upcoming classes and stand out in his/her group. While being a part of sports is a good option, students can also spend time into adding new skills in their skill sets.
This very thought of helping students to learn new skills apart from academia and sports made us at Vedantu to innovate a set of creative courses, which a student can learn without going out in the hot sun. Yes, when you are indoors during this hot season, get connected with experts right from your personal computer or mobile and add new skills to your kitty.
What’s better than to Improvising your calculation speed by learning Vedic maths; tackle mathematical word problems easily by visualizing via Singapore model method; mastering chess skills; learning problem-solving and stimulating logical thinking by taking up a course on logical thinking and puzzles; building an Android App and learn a programming language. There is so much more to explore, choose one of your favorite course and start learning from the comfort of your home. We wish you loads of luck!
