On the 4th and 5th of August, Mr. Pradeep Upadhyay conducted a workshop in our school for students of classes 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th. He is a renowned Lateral Thinker and has travelled across the country visiting various schools. The workshop was an extremely interesting one.
For classes 8th, 9th and 10th, the main objective was to introduce the concept of Lateral Thinking, while for the senior classes; he took this concept to the second level. He supplemented it with inspirational video clips like those from the movie ‘Dead Poet’s Society.’ He demonstrated to us many tools like river jumping and how to turn negativity into positivity as aspects of Lateral Thinking. He also taught the senior classes, 11 and 12, the art of time management so we could structure our study routine accordingly.
We thoroughly enjoyed the workshop as it gave us insights into the practicality of life in general, and the reality of worldly things.
