Field trip to Nehru Science Center Secondary Section Grade 8 at Witty International School Pawan Baug (18-19)

Science is Fun

The students of Grade 8 visited the Nehru Science Center, Worli, on the 9th of February, 2019, as an educational visit. The Nehru Science Center boasts of a variety of interactive hands-on exhibits, providing children with ideas to understand scientific concepts, to trigger all their senses. Our children enjoyed the Science Outdoor Park, as they went about playing and experimenting with a host of items that were not only enjoyable; but also compelled them to ask questions and discuss the theory behind it. The students  witnessed real images and pictures of the planets captured on a gigantic animated globe. They saw some live satellite images of the weather and air traffic too

The ‘Science for Children’ section had realistic and workable aids, models, gadgets, images and pictures; which allowed the children to test, try and experience theories first-hand.
The children then proceeded to the galleries, which housed interesting and interactive curriculum relevant exhibits, to enhance student understanding. Three children breezed through three galleries, namely: Sound and Hearing, Prehistoric Animal Life and Mirror-The Reflecting Surface. All these galleries opened up a whole new world of exploration and fun.
The children were super excited to watch the various experiments being performed before them and enjoyed guessing the results too.

The visit to the Nehru Science Center was not only enjoyable, but also inculcated the spirit of scientific enquiry in the minds of the young students.

The Principal, Mr.Kurian, enthused, “Field Trips areimportant to help bridge the gap between education and hands-on experience. ... Field trips are crucial for every student to acquire increased knowledge, culture and hands-on experience. Hands-on experience produce questions and answers that help shape a child's future.”
