“Research is creating new knowledge”
When we think about "Research" , we think it is the work of elders or post graduates. But, the real meaning of research is studying some fact deeply and understanding all the things about particular topic. It mainly begins with a curiosity, which leads to searching again and again such, search again is termed as Research. Once, known the fact it is all curiosity which leads to the research, then motivating curiosity is the task done by most of the international schools. Schools make kids to research some of the real life topic and students go on studying the topic with curiosity. If properly conducted such activity enhances students’ knowledge and initiate their thought process. Recently some schools asked kids to research about a history topic that is of 60’s era. Another schools made kids to research on poverty and its causes. It is interesting to see such little minds actively participating and researching about such serious topics. Here are some of the facts about it:

With such research topics, kids get into another world and start thinking about it and get aware about different types of lives. Like researching about the past helps them to get insight of those era.
- Learning :
Different topics leads to the new facts learning. While researching such topics kids get to know lifestyle of others and the differences in life patterns. We certainly learn to adapt to good things and improve our lives.
Once research topic is assigned kids get into that world and then start observing facts about the topic. They come up with so many facts that eventually their observation skills are enhanced.
It is not mere observation or awareness, we get motivated by lives of others. Such study about different topics and people associated with it make kids motivated by examples. Let us say an invention topic study motivates kids to invent.
At the end once we know the past we can improve the present to develop the future. With awareness, observation, learning ,motivation lastly such activities provide a platform for innovation. With such research activities kids may try something to solve the problems of their study.
