Brac Play Lab, where learning is fun
Brac Centre at Dhaka's Mohakhali was in a festive mood yesterday with children cheering and enjoying themselves while doing a range of creative activities as part of a campaign titled "Brac Play Lab".
Brac Institute of Educational Development (Brac IED), which developed this innovative model, organised the event as a part of celebrating the 50th anniversary of Brac, and 90th anniversary of LEGO Foundation -- Brac's funding partner.
So far, "Brac Play Lab Model" has been established in 656 centres in Bangladesh, Tanzania and Uganda, involving around 11,500 children, said a press release.
The children made clay objects, drew and learnt new things through pictures, muppets, word and number games, among other activities.
Dr Erum Mariam, executive director, from Brac IED, and Kristine Morch, senior programme analyst, LEGO Foundation, were also present at the programme.
