Robofission Quad Copter Workshop

“Workshop: A meeting for discussion and activity on a particular subject or project.” This is the dictionary meaning of a workshop. But what Robo fission’s Quad copter workshop consisted of was much more. It went beyond just a meeting and interaction. The workshop was organized by Science Forum on March 21 and 22, 2014 in the library. The enthusiasm displayed by our Quad copter guides set confidence and eagerness in our minds within the first few minutes of the session. On the first day of the workshop, all 39 of us were engaged in designing our circuits on the computer. With a point presentation, we were guided through the construction of our required circuits on the ‘Schematics’ software. This helped us understand the “organs” of our quadcopter. The entire day was devoted to teaching us the technical aspects of the construction of our quadcopters. I was impressed with the amount of detail put into explanation.

The second day of the workshop consisted of all the heavy lifting. We had to assemble our 6×6 inch quad copter from the Robo fission kits provided to us. In spite of thousand opportunities to potentially destroy our quad copters, nothing went wrong. Thanks to the guidance of the Robo fission team. By afternoon, almost 13 teams had built their quad copters. Though we were eager to fly them immediately, we couldn’t as they had to be scrutinized for any safety hazards by the Robo fission team. After the ‘OK’ was given, we went outside and actually flew our quadcopter. We were jumping with joy to watch our efforts take to the skies. I shall always remember the experience we have had over these 2 days. We were very reluctant to leave our kits behind. Thanks to the knowledge gained at this workshop, we can no doubt rebuild the quad copters. It has been an experience like no other. A huge thumbs up from all of us to the Robo fission team.

The adoption of the National Science Curriculum (NSC) by the Department of Pre University Education, Karnataka from the academic year 2012 is well known. This has established connections between classroom teaching and phenomena in daily life and has also made learning a more exciting experience altogether. The integration of positive values, attitudes, life skills and aesthetic sensibilities of a learner has gone a long way in moulding students to make a mark in the society.

In today’s world, emergence of Information Technology (IT) has made it necessary for one and all to be better equipped to face the challenges. The blend of IT and Education has opened many vistas of opportunity in sharing knowledge. At Christ Junior College (CJC), the II PU students are given an opportunity to access subject-related information, online, through an e-learning system, Learning Management System (LMS). Students with their username and password may not only access resources, related to their subjects, but also, take part in a plethora of activities like assignments, quiz, blog, forum etc.

Talent and entertainment…College day!

The last event and the most exciting event of the academic year…college day was conducted on 30th January. We could witness a sense of excitement and joy among the students as the auditorium was filled with people eagerly waiting for their classmates and friends to perform.

The programme started at 9:30 and went on till 2 in the afternoon and not once did we see students restless. They were more than happy to be sitting in the auditorium. The best of the teams performed to enthrall the crowd with their dance moves or their incredibly melodious voice.

Father Jose our principal gave the annual report. The various achievements by the students of Christ Junior College were listed out. Hoping that the same trend continues I would like to wish them luck. Good luck and thank you.

The Immaculate Conception Of The Blessed Virgin Mary – December 8

The Immaculate Conception is a dogma of the Catholic Church maintaining that from the moment when she was conceived in the womb, the Blessed Virgin Mary was kept free of original sin, so that she was from the start filled with the sanctifying grace normally conferred in baptism. It is one of the four dogmas in Roman Catholic Mariology.

The doctrine of the immaculate conception of Mary concerns her mother’s conception of her, not Mary’s conception of Jesus (the virgin birth of Jesus) nor the perpetual virginity of Mary. Although the belief that Mary was conceived immaculate was widely held since at least Late Antiquity, the doctrine was not dogmatically defined until December 8, 1854, by Pope Pius IX in his papal bull Ineffabilis Deus. It is not formal doctrine except in the Roman Catholic Church.[4] The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is observed on December 8 in many Catholic countries as a holy day of obligation or patronal feast, and in some as a national public holiday.

St.Nicholas

The absence of the “hard facts” of history is not necessarily an obstacle to the popularity of saints, as the devotion to St. Nicholas shows. Both the Eastern and Western Churches honor him, and it is claimed that, after the Blessed Virgin, he is the saint most pictured by Christian artists. And yet, historically, we can pinpoint only the fact that Nicholas was the fourth-century bishop of Myra, a city in Lycia, a province of Asia Minor.

As with many of the saints, however, we are able to capture the relationship which Nicholas had with God through the admiration which Christians have had for him—an admiration expressed in the colorful stories which have been told and retold through the centuries.

Perhaps the best-known story about Nicholas concerns his charity toward a poor man who was unable to provide dowries for his three daughters of marriageable age. Rather than see them forced into unethical means to earn money, Nicholas secretly tossed a bag of gold through the poor man’s window on three separate occasions, thus enabling the daughters to be married. Over the centuries, this particular legend evolved into the custom of gift-giving on the saint’s feast. In the English-speaking countries, St. Nicholas became, by a twist of the tongue, Santa Claus—further expanding the example of generosity portrayed by this holy bishop.
The critical eye of modern history makes us take a deeper look at the legends surrounding St. Nicholas. But perhaps we can utilize the lesson taught by his legendary charity, look deeper at our approach to material goods in the Christmas season and seek ways to extend our sharing to those in real need.

“In order to be able to consult more suitably the welfare of the faithful according to the condition of each one, a bishop should strive to become duly acquainted with their needs in the social circumstances in which they live…. He should manifest his concern for all, no matter what their age, condition, or nationality, be they natives, strangers, or foreigners” (Vatican II, Decree on the Bishops’ Pastoral Office, 16).
