An­nual sci­ence and math ex­hi­bi­tion at Bha­vans Kuwait

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

Bha­vans Kuwait basked yet again in the glory of child-cen­tered and ac­tiv­ity based learn­ing when the 'young sci­en­tists and the math­e­ma­ti­cians in the mak­ing' at Bha­vans Kuwait, proudly show­cased their ex­hibits to the public on Oc­to­ber 27, 2016 at the School An­nual Sci­ence and Math Ex­hi­bi­tion.

The an­nual ex­hi­bi­tion chris­tened 'Quest 2016' by the prin­ci­pal, T Premku­mar, was held in the school premises. With an en­deavor to ig­nite and pro­mote sci­en­tific tem­per among the stu­dents, 'Quest' proved to be unique in ev­ery re­spect and won plau­dits from the vis­i­tors.

The for­mal in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony was or­ga­nized in the school au­di­to­rium. The light­ing of the cer­e­mo­nial lamp con­jointly per­formed by the Chief Guest Dr S Nee­la­mani, and the Heads of the Sci­ence and Math De­part­ments, Dr Bessy A Varkey, Anselma Tessy Gon­salves, Vinita Ma­h­eswari and Beena Kr­ishna, in the pres­ence of the prin­ci­pal, T Premku­mar and the vice prin­ci­pals Suresh V Balakr­ish­nan and Lalitha Premku­mar, marked the sig­nif­i­cance and the solem­nity of the oc­ca­sion. Dr Subra­ma­nian Nee­la­mani, the Se­nior Re­search Sci­en­tist and Man­ager, Coastal Man­age­ment Pro­gram, KISR was the chief guest for the day. Austin Antony, Head of the Depart­ment of Physics wel­comed the chief guest with a flo­ral bou­quet. In his key­note ad­dress, Dr S Nee­la­mani thanked the Bha­van's man­age­ment for pro­vid­ing the young stu­dents with the won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity named 'Quest 2016' to widen the hori­zons of their knowl­edge through re­search and hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence in the Bha­van's way. He proudly pro­claimed that his own child, an alum­nus of Bha­vans Kuwait stands tes­ti­mony to the suc­cess­ful model of ed­u­ca­tion at Bha­vans Kuwait. He urged the stu­dents to be ex­perts in their cho­sen fields of ca­reer. He ad­vised them to choose their ca­reer by lis­ten­ing to their hearts, and their hearts only, by dis­re­gard­ing the ex­ter­nal in­flu­ences. He ad­vised the stu­dent com­mu­nity to find hap­pi­ness in their pur­suit of knowl­edge by grab­bing the op­por­tu­ni­ties made avail­able to them.

The ex­hi­bi­tion wit­nessed 'sci­en­tists in the mak­ing' and 'the fu­ture Math wizards' putting up ex­hibits com­pris­ing in­no­va­tive work­ing mod­els, still mod­els, ro­bot­ics tech­nol­ogy, vir­tual 3D skyscapes, pi­o­neer­ing medi­cos with vi­sion tests, stress re­lief cor­ners, smart tests, ar­ti­fi­cial rain forests, so­lar sys­tem, chicken coop dis­played and hun­dred oth­ers dis­played in more than 38 rooThe mov­ing ro­bot was worth watch­ing and re­ceived gen­er­ous plau­dits. The main at­trac­tion, the vir­tual rain for­est with its per­fect set­ting, lights and mu­sic added zing to Quest 2016, and was praised to the skies by ev­ery­one alike. Chil­dren num­ber­ing around 1500 from grades 1 to 11 were well pre­pared to an­swer ques­tions on their ex­hibits with great vigor.

The Math Ex­hi­bi­tion stalls also drew throngs of en­thu­si­as­tic spec­ta­tors. Some of the high­lights of the Math ex­hi­bi­tion were the 'An­cient Sys­tem of Mea­sure­ment of Time', 'The Geo­met­ric City', 'Mea­sur­ing the Hu­man Beauty', 'The Origami Zoo', 'The Gar­den of Sym­me­try', 'The Lines and Fu­ture Life', 'The Magic Square' and 'The Beauty of Math Art.'

The Chief Guest, the Chair­man, the prin­ci­pal, and the vice prin­ci­pals vis­ited the ex­hi­bi­tion stalls and quizzed the well pre­pared kids who were ready with their an­swers. The spe­cial vis­i­tors of the day were the prin­ci­pal and the staff of the Smart In­dian School, an­other tem­ple of learn­ing un­der the um­brella of Bha­vans Mid­dle East. They in­ter­acted with the stu­dents and ap­pre­ci­ated the nov­elty of the ex­hibits and the en­thu­si­asm and ef­forts of Bha­van­ites. The par­ents, the teach­ers, the well-wish­ers, the alumni of IES, and the stu­dents of neigh­bor­ing schools also vis­ited the stalls to view and ex­pe­ri­ence the sci­en­tific tem­per of Bha­van­ites.
