Looking for a fun and educational activity for your child this summer? Look no further than MAP, a newly opened museum at the heart of Bengaluru. Join us for Summer at MAP, an annual summer programme for kids. This year, we explore the exciting world of S.T.E.A.M [Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics] through six hands-on workshops and learning experiences.

Cyanotype is an alternative photographic process that produces beautiful blue and white prints using a light-sensitive solution and the power of the sun. Participants will explore the history and chemistry of the cyanotype process and make their own prints. Join us to create your own unique prints by experimenting with foliage, everyday objects and more!

All materials will be provided, however participants will be expected to bring their own lunch. This workshop will be facilitated by the MAP Education team.
