India Today - - BREAKING NEWS -

At the Mad About Sci­ence ++ event held at The Shri­ram Mil­len­nium School, Noida, cre­ative young minds brought sci­ence to life with ex­cit­ing ex­per­i­ments and projects. Around 900 stu­dents — the youngest be­ing in pre- nurs­ery and the old­est in class nine — were seen demon­strat­ing and ex­plain­ing a var­i­ous sci­en­tific con­cepts.

Mad About Sci­ence ++ was an ini­tia­tive to in­volve chil­dren and par­ents to­gether in a cre­ative project right from the con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion stage to the de- vel­op­ment and demon­stra­tion of the sci­ence projects. Stu­dents put up work­ing mod­els, art work, in­tri­cate ex­per­i­ments, games and quizzes in their re­spec­tive stalls, while their happy par­ents were at hand for any help.

The sci­ence fair pro­vided budding sci­en­tists an op­por­tu­nity to put the­o­ret­i­cal ideas into prac­tice. Con­cepts such as genomes, DNA, aero­space tech­nol­ogy, hy­draulic force, ozone layer, weather and sea­sons, global warm­ing, and en­vi­ron­men­tal en­gi­neer­ing were brought to life through sim­ple but in­no­va­tive projects. “Mad About Sci­ence ++ is an event meant to make sci­ence fun and re­lat­able for the chil­dren. This helps to sow the seeds of cu­rios­ity, nur­tur­ing a child’s abil­ity to won­der and ask ques­tions,” says Ut­tara Singh, prin­ci­pal, The Shri­ram Mil­len­nium School.

Other ac­tiv­i­ties at the event in­cluded a ro­bot­ics and aerial show by the Sci­ence, Tech­nol­ogy, En­gi­neer­ing and Math­e­matic team, ad­ven­ture sports and par­tic­i­pa­tion of var­i­ous in­de­pen­dent NGOs such as Green­peace, SETU, Ten­der Hearts and Chin­tan.
