Well, the most awaited time in the academic year of a science student was witnessed from 21-24 september in Christ Junior College. Nothing, But THE SCIENCE WEEK. An amazing 4 day journey to appreciate and talk about the importance of science in our everyday lives.
It kick-started with the inauguration of various science subjects. It had dance displaying the fact that science students are not only book smart but street smart as well. Mere bookworms don’t exist in our world.
21st september,2015 – PHYSICS DAY
Well, it all began with the celebration of the most reasonable science subject, PHYSICS. Various activities were conducted in our quadrangle during the lunch time. Firstly, various day-to-day experiments were displayed and student were supposed to guess the laws and principles behind those experiments. It looked extremely simple but it truly tested our concept clarity. It had experiments talking about law of gravity to inertia to interference to the angular momentum to many other principles. Also, Pic-and-Speak was held in room no.9 where subjects were given an object and they were supposed to talk about the physics behind it. It was a good day with some mind boggling tasks which seemed quite simple but had loads of tricks and tests hidden in it.
22nd september,2015 – CHEMISTRY DAY
The next day was celebrated as the day of the most fascinating science of all times, CHEMISTRY.The enthusiasm was the same with various events taking place in our quadrangle again. Various chemistry projects were exhibited by the first PU classes. They talked about various phenomena which exist only due to the presence of a brilliant subject like chemistry. The students were eager to answer all the questions thrown at them. There was a game held right in the middle, about rearranging the periodic table. It was a fun game though which was appreciated by all the students. It was a very interesting day with these events brain curling the young minds.
23rd september, 2015- MATHEMATICS DAY
We all know about Midas, the Greek king, whose magical touch turned everything into Gold. Similarly, we have an undisputed queen whose magic paved way for all the sciences to flourish in their fields- none other than MATHEMATICS. It started with various games in the quadrangle like Rubik’s cube, Sudoku, Brainvita etc. and also the new ones like Mathekoo and Rope the loops. Various projects were exhibited and innovative ideas were displayed by the First PU classes. An on-spot quiz called Brainability was organised at 12. It had nothing to do with Great and high-level Mathematical skills, but it was simply based on charts and projects displayed. Not only science students, but Commerce and social science students actively took part in all the games and the quiz. Father Biju also came up to share his mathematical skills with the students. “If you get hundred in maths, please thank Father for this”- said the MC. It was a student friendly event with loads of fun involved in it.
24th september,2015- BIOLOGY AND ELECTRONICS DAY
This was one of the most awaited days because it had the blend of both Life Science and technology.Various projects were displayed in the quadrangle, both related to biology and electronics. Two completely different subjects, yet displayed beautifully without compromising the importance of either. Quiz was organised which was utter fun. From the robots to the human skeletal system, It was highly informative and student- friendly.
This marked the end of this 4-day beautiful journey which will always be cherished by each and everyone of us. Not only Science students, but also the commerce and Social science students actively took part in it, along with the teachers. It was filled with enthusiasm and utter fun.
