Smart In­dian School holds ‘Eureka - 2016’

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

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.
