Students made a film and recorded a radio program which will be broadcasted on Saturday and Sunday at 3 pm on FM 107.4.

 

 

Workshop at National Science Centre

The science workshop was held at National Science Centre at Pragati Maidan for classes VI-X on 23 Sept’17. The workshop aimed at creating and enhancing scientific awareness while at the same time imparting science education in an interesting way. Students were divided into two groups; students of classes VI-VIII attended workshop at physics lab on the topic ‘Speakers Out of Waste’ and students of classes IX-X attended workshop at biotech lab on the topic ‘Peep into Cells’.

Biotechnology Session

The following activities were done in this session:

1. Students observed speedy movement of Paramecium under a high definition compound microscope. Paramecium was taken in a cavity slide from a sample of pond water which they had already stored in their lab.

 

2. Students were divided into ten groups, five students in each group. Each group isolated, stained and made a culture of Lactobacillus bacteria and then observed the shape of the bacteria under a microscope.

 

3. Students observed and measured the size of temporary mount of cheek cells.

 

4. They also observed pollen grains and drosophila melanogaster under a sterotype microscope to understand the difference between different microscopes.

 

 

Physics Session

The following activities were done in this session:

1. Students first had an interactive session with the person in charge and were told about various innovations in science and technology.

 

2. All the students were shown the procedure of activity to be done via a video clip.

 

3. Students were then divided into groups and given separate work benches and material required to make their own Speaker out of waste.

 

4. The session ended with students testing their speakers and explanation of some other gadgets like flying Drone, acoustic guitar etc.

 

After the workshops were over the students took a tour of the following galleries- Water- the elixir of life, Hall of nuclear power, Our science and technology heritage, Human biology, Pre-historic life , Fun science, Information revolution, Emerging technologies-Space Technology, Information and Communication Technology, Medical and Biotechnology, Oceanography and Earth Sciences, Agricultural Technology, Material Science, Nanotechnology, Energy and Transportation Technology. The galleries showcased a plethora of exhibits that covered various topics. Overall the workshop and the visit was an enriching experience for the students to ignite their imagination and help them to understand the science concepts in depth.
