For many kids, science period is just another boring class — a teacher reading out experiments from a textbook and children perfecting the art of rote learning to secure a good grade. If you are lucky, you might have a shot at understanding the theory being fed to you in a laboratory as you watch the teacher perform the experiment but may never have the chance to do it yourself. But, what if you had a chance to try your hand at it as many times as you wished, till you understood the pricniples of science? Well, a Bengaluru based start-up ThinkTac has found a way out.
