Introduction

As group 65 of the SunnySide Tekkie Tots Joint-Community Project we chose a task of educating pre-primary children about basic mathematics, science and technology.  Our initial meeting started when we were briefed by Ms Anita van Deventer from the CSIR as how to approach the different lessons and to what dynamics we need to pay close attention to, such as the time frame of each lesson and the type of language medium to use for instruction as well as when doing the activities.  Our meeting was held on the 22nd of March.

Our first session

Our first session was on the 17 April 2012 at Tekkie Tots in SunnySide where we taught the children how to make simple structures using jelly tots and toothpicks then combine them to form a bridge-like stucture.  To be honest it felt rather daunting to approach little children and ask them whether they knew about bridges or not as well as to determine would they be able actually do the activity.  As time went on within the activity we were able to establish how to get their attention and also keep the activity interesting as well as short.  So at the end of the day we felt confident enough as a group to return for our next session and we hope it will go even better.
