Leigh Chambers recently re-visited The Advaith Foundation at The Samhita Academy in South Bengaluru to conduct a follow-up workshop with 45 children aged 11-14, entitled Anatomy Explorers. The program aimed to introduce creative approaches to science education and worked closely with teachers and program leaders to develop mutual understanding of the advantages of an arts based learning approach.
