Science is a way of thinking much more than it is body of knowledge.
We celebrated science month AYAN in the month of May to encourage innovation through science, understand the importance of science, technology and innovation in our day-to-day lives and the ways in which it is transforming the world. The idea behind the concept was to create curiosity in our young learners which would help them delve deeper in the mysteries of science .
Toys are children's words and play is their language so ToyCathoncompetition was organized for Grade 6 which would help them to learn the scientific principles behind the toys. Another activity for our Grade 6 learners was to design a Scrap Book explaining the nutrient contents of food and importance of healthy food.
Grade 7 and 8 learners were given the challenge of Role Play. The theme for class 7 students was Organ or Organ system of the bodyand for Grade 8 first ten elements of Periodic table or Forces in our life. The idea behind this activity is to learn while playing.The second activity for Grade 7 was to make a project on the mysteries of nature with a aim to interpret the scientific explanations. Grade 8 students were asked to prepare a Comic Strip on microbes that have adapted and survived with a view to provide insight into another vast field of science-microbiology.
Air , water , food , plants , the roof we live in… everything is important ! But we take them for granted - to make the young learners realise the importance of these elements-the first activity for Grade 9was videography on the theme- celebrating life. The students had to construct a short story on the significance of any element in life and write the story in subtitles.The second activity was based on the idea that magic is real and science is that very magic . The students had to perform a simple experiment that showcased the magic of science .
Since infographics are quick and easy to understand, the 10th graders were asked to visually and verbally represent the data to help others clearly understand the information . The second activity for the 10th graders was videography -it was a group project wherein the group was asked to make a video on any research Institute of India .This would reflect the team spirit and hardwork of the students and also motivate them to take up careers in the field of scientific research and development.
The students of Grade 11were asked to represent how scientific principles / phenomenon/ technology have influenced their life or how science has given a direction to their life.
The 12th graders were asked to make a PowerPoint presentation on any topic from the syllabus of Class 11th or 12th science -the main aim was to help the students recapitulate the topics they learnt. A photo caption contest was also organized for Grades 11 and 12 which would harness their creativity .
Movies are a great way to escape boredom during these covid times, so the students from Grade 6 to 9 were shown an interesting movie and were asked to write a review of it .The last activity for all the classes was to maintain a scrapbook showcasing the latest developments in science.
