NATIONAL SCIENCE DAY CELEBRATIONS
“Equipped together with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the journey – ‘SCIENCE’.” True to this famous saying, many scientists proved their metal and a day is contributed for one of them to celebrate science. Each year, February 28 is celebrated as National Science Day to commemorate the discovery of the ‘Raman Effect’ by the Indian Physicist CV Raman. This year, the theme of the celebrations is ‘Integrated Approach in Science and Technology for sustainable Future’.
National Science Day is celebrated all over the world to invoke a feeling of oneness pertaining to scientific updates and the latest technology. It is to roll out to the world about the impact of science used in the daily life of the people.
Reinforcing the same, scientific celebrations have spread their jubilance at Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan. National Science day was observed by Prakashites on 28 th February, 2022. In this regard, a workshop was organized at the school premises for the students by the Founder of the Revathi Foundation, Mr.Sri Krishna sai.
The children have thoroughly enjoyed the session with hands-on experience of various experiments like the ‘Litmus Paper Test’, ‘The Periodic Table Game’, ‘Magic lines Activity’, ‘Filtration’ etc. They also had some frolic with ‘The Magic Bulb Experiment’.
On the same day competitions like ‘Poster Making’ and ‘Essay Writing’ were also conducted. The students showcased their scientific zeal through their ‘Video Presentations’, ‘Lab Experiments’, and ‘Diagrams’.
Overall, it was a fulfilling experience for the students as they have taken a deep dip into the concrete science Chambers after a long abstract learning. Expressing the same enthusiasm the children shared their views are on the workshop.
Science is a vast subject and it had empowered the world to perfection. The seminar was extremely informative and taught us the way of easy learning and fun by performing some experiments. The experiments like ‘Play with Periodic Table’ and ‘Fun with Magic Bulb’ were interesting and awoke our interest. The experiments enhanced our enthusiasm and helped us to utilize time in a particular way.
Today I am here to share my feelings about the science organized by Revathi Science Foundation. I felt very lively while doing the experiments. My favourite activity out of all was the ‘Fun with Periodic Table’ activity. It was really fun to find the names of animals using atomic number and the element symbol. It felt really amazing to perform the activities. I would like to thank the Revathi Science Foundation and our school management for giving us this wonderful opportunity.
