"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Sound, Music & Science Workshop @PSN 29November 2010
This 'sensei' seem to have an affirnity with Hui. Hui followed her cue and played along.
These are the two DIY musical instrument made at the workshop. The paper cup created a clucking sound when pulled, which made the kids burst into fits of laughter. The other tiny piece of straw which was cut diagonally at one end, from both side, acted as a whistle when you blow into it.
The best thing was the animation studio, where En witnessed the animation of my recordded voice in the Garfield movie by using an animation software. She has been asking me about this for a long time.
Hui joined the colouring group where it's not En's cup of tea.
Right- Hui tried on the computer puzzle-games. Lately, she has retired from the jigsaw puzzles at home.
