Smart Indian School holds ‘Eureka - 2016’
The Smart Indian School opened its doors to yet another heuristic ‘Eureka 2016’ - the Annual Math and Science exhibition. True to its meaning of the Greek word eureka ‘we have found it’, the ambience promoted scientific attitude among the budding research scholars and math wizards. While the focus was on ingraining a scientific and creative attitude in the students, to make them comprehend the inter-dependence of scientific technology and society by a hands-on experience, it engaged children and teachers to synergize experiences and motivate one another.
The event was kicked off with the hospitable welcome to the chief guest through a memento presentation by the dynamic Principal Mahesh Iyer and the assembling of a jigsaw puzzle by the guest of honor Sajeev K Peter, Business Editor, Kuwait Times. It was a befitting tribute to the greatest scientist of our age, an outstanding connoisseur of the fine arts and a teacher par excellence: Dr AP J Abdul Kalam. The parent community together with the aspiring students admired this pantheon of ex- Indian President while it was being unveiled.
The planet earth and its exploration of life giving atmosphere showcased beautifully by the tiny tots evoked the quest for wisdom. The two toddler stars of SIS: Eshan of LKG and Prabhath Aravind of Pre Kg stunned experts through their signs of genius. Prabhath Aravind would be a handy guide outside the UN headquarters in Geneva, since he could identify the flags of every independent sovereign state on a map of the world and even match them with their national flags. Eshan the autodidact, drew throngs of spectators as he is exceptionally and profoundly gifted in reading capacity of a 12-year-old who has mastered a number of Indian languages, is now aspiring to learn Arabic as well, showed a definite talent of early acquisition of speech.
The eyes could savor the appreciable accomplishments of intrinsic relationship between Science and Mathematics through the unique series of exhibits put up by the primary and middle wing students : Sewage Treatment Plant and Weather Lab by Geo, Theft Alarm Bell and Sun Dial by Mevin, Non-Newtonian Fluid and 3-D shapes by Soham , Hologram and Origami by Asad, Vision Tests and Stress Relief Corner by Daniel, Solar System and Square Root Clock by Sambhav, Planetarium by students of grade 7, a dance performance on Save Earth etc. to name a few. The outstanding exhibits thus widened the practical and applicable skills on a larger perspective. Ali Judian AlRashidi, the owner and the sponsor of the school visited the exhibition along with the Administration Manager Shaimaa Zaki and was entranced by the creative skills on the technology innovations by the exhibitors. Hats off to the fortunate team headed by the committed and talented Principal Mahesh Iyer , Vice-Principal Marie Christiane and Rajni Menon, the KG supervisor.
