How do thousands of microbes work their magic to make our dosa batter rise? How is sound produced? Or how does air travel to the lungs to help us breathe?

If you are struggling to answer big questions by your little one, a new series of simple, non-verbal animated science videos, is here to help. Launched by educational platform, LifeLab, with a focus on six to eight-year-olds, the series, Gappu & Bobo: Fun with Science, explores concepts from food, preservation, nutrition and sustainable living, to the human body and even the solar system.

“Science as an academic discipline is often looked at as a monster, due to the use of big jargons. But the truth is — every single day as we breathe, we are experiencing science and chemistry in and around us. Gappu and Bobo are superheroes who use superpowers like curiosity, logical thinking and exploration to solve community problems using applied science. Every video in the series uses fun experiments to engage children and help them inculcate scientific literacy, proficiency and temperament,” shares founder Lewitt Somarajan.
