New Delhi, August 10, 2015: The school organised Science Day wherein a number of activities were conducted – ‘Science Quiz: Ignite Scientia’ for Class IX and X and ‘Explore Science with Experiments’ for classes VI-VIII. To encourage the students and harness their interest in Science, the School took a major initiative by inviting Dr. S.V. Eswaran for an interactive session with the students of Science streams. Dr. Eswaran is the retired head of the Chemistry Department and Dean-Academics, St. Stephen’s College, University of Delhi.
Dr. Eswaran’s session with the students touched various branches of Science, including Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths. Very logically, he related the concepts to the ancient Indian scriptures in the form of Sanskrit shlokas. The students were also shown various video clips as he discussed them in depth. Sharing examples from his life and students, he connected with the audience really well. He gave a new angle to every theory. He even shared with the students some of his research work and discussed with them his current projects.
Students learnt about the contributions and life history of many renowned scientists. It was a motivating and learning experience.
