National Science Day at Witty International School Pawan Baug (2017-18).

Sci-Tech Fest

To explore new horizons and push scientific frontiers further, it is vital that our youth develop a passion for science.  Thus, Witty International School, Pawan Baug celebrated the National Science Day on 28th February, 2018 in order to commemorate the invention of the Raman Effect (effect on scattering of light when passing through different materials). Sir C.V.Raman’s great success and discovery has been marked in the Indian history through this day. The celebrations of the Science week started a week long prior.

The main objective of celebrating National Science Day is to widely spread a message about the significance of scientific applications in the daily life of people, to display all the activities, efforts and achievements in the field of science for human welfare. The first competition held was a ‘Sci-toon’ contest where the students had to design and depict the future Earth. This event aimed to draw attention to the environmental concerns faced across the world and to find out how we can help make the world a better, safer place – not only for today, but for future generations as well!

The nature of our 21st century development challenges requires a shift in thinking and action that will better prepare us for the future, while enabling more effective development interventions today. The resilience of our ecosystems, the security of natural resources, and the stability of Earth's life-support systems are necessary for humans to thrive. To enable the broadening of a student’s horizon towards Science and its various components, an Elocution competition was conducted on topics such as ‘Science and Technology for Sustainable future, Alien Life – Fact or Fiction, Earth – our most valuable resource’ followed by a slogan writing competition.
Taking a camera, shooting a picture is an easy deal. What about going further? What about using the pictures to discover Science? From a water drop to a rainbow, from a bubble to a geyser, from smoke to light, from microscopy to astronomy, everywhere, we are facing scientific phenomena. Witty International Science week aimed to give children an opportunity to freeze them for eternity by organising a Science Nature Photography competition. From a glowing single atom lit up by a laser, to an amazing close-up of a butterfly wing, the beauty of Science was revealed in stunning photos.

To mark the end of the Science week, an extravagant Science exhibition was held for all students. The exhibition focussed on ingraining a scientific and creative attitude in our young students to make them comprehend the interdependence of science by hands – on – experience. The exhibition seeks to engage children and teachers to synergise experience and motivate each other to design and develop something novel. The enthusiasm and skill clubbed with in depth knowledge of Physics, Chemistry and Biology was commendable. The exhibits included still models, working models and research base projects which were very innovative and relevant in today’s times. The young scientists showcased their imagination and ability in the innovative world of Science.

The scientific models ranged from the gear car, rocket launch, magnetic train, telescope, volcano eruption, motor boat, mini vacuum cleaner, rainbow density, remote control car, futuristic kitchen and much more.
The Principal, Mr Bijo Kurian addressed, “We need to develop scientific temper among school children so that they could be better scientists, better citizens and capable of governing their personal thoughts and actions in a scientific manner. Science exhibitions will generate a deep interest in young minds. It makes an effort to understand every activity they are engaged in by asking questions and seeking answers.”
