“The reward of the young scientist is the emotional thrill of being the first person in the history of the world to see something or to understand something. Nothing can compare with that experience.”
– Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin
The Directorate of Education organised a science exhibition and other science competitions like a science debate, a science quiz, a science-based poster, a slogan, and a science toon for classes IX–XII at zonal level on December 8, 2022, at Sector-3 Rohini, for inculcating a scientific temperament and popularising science among the students. Students from class XIA from our school, Stuti Jain and Utkarsh Tanwar, won the competition and secured “first position” by defeating around 15 competing schools. They were awarded the trophy and certificates.
Students presented different types of models that were related to different branches of science and mathematics and models prepared on the basis of artificial intelligence to make life easier, applied their classroom knowledge in the exhibition, and developed a taste for learning by doing. The programme started at 9:00 a.m. The chief guest inaugurated the exhibition. The models were prepared under the following theme and sub-themes:
Theme: Technology and Toys
1) Advancement in information and communication technology
• Eco-friendly material
• Health and cleanliness
• Transport and Innovation
• Environmental Concerns
• Historical development with current innovation
• Mathematics for Us
On the sub-theme “Advancement in Information and Communication Technology,” students created a “Techno-Civic” model. The aim of this city is to provide artificial intelligence-based facilities and infrastructure to individuals. This project will make the life of the common man simple and easy in challenging situations.
In other science activities also around 100 of schools participated and Sanchali Gupta of grade XII A of Maxfort School ,Rohini secured “Second position”.
The exhibition shifts the students from theoretical study to practical implementation, and they avail themselves of the opportunity to apply their ideas in unique ways. Once they’ve transformed their idea into a project, they showcase it in front of others and get acknowledgement, which further boosts their confidence. So, this exhibition made the students more confident, creative, and ready for the future. It also made them lifelong learners. It was heartening to notice that the students had been inspired to conceptualise and initiate their personal scientific journey through self-motivation and with a concern for sustainability and inclusivity.
