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.

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn more about Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. Bringing together fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and the mathematical principles behind the art, they will explore different folding techniques to create their own constructions.

All materials will be provided, however participants will be expected to bring their own lunch.
