With a view to encourage, popularize and develop the scientific temper among the children, we organized a SCIENCE EXPO.
This event helps the children showcase their talents in science and their applications in different areas related with our everyday life. It also develops critical thinking to find innovative solutions to environmental issues like global warming, ozone depletion, etc in the young minds. The plan was to invite all the schools in and around Trichy.
We had 7 hardcore teams to invite the schools in-person who travelled all over Trichy sacrificing their academic schedule. Almost all the schools in Trichy were invited.
The event was held as planned on 6th of February, 2014 in our campus. Our college management and our faculty advisor Dr. P. Mani were very helpful in organizing and successful conduction of this event. We had an awesome 162 participants comprising 81 teams. Children from classes 5 to 9 and 11 participated.
The chief guest was Dr. Puratchikodi, Head of the Department of Pharmaceutical Technology of our college. She has been a great inspiration to us being the first woman in TamilNadu to receive a Doctorate in Pharmaceutical Technology. The science projects the students exhibited were beyond our imagination and were very appealing in their innovation. We had a lot of happy visitors from our college.
Our faculty advisor Dr. P. Mani and Mr. Brahadeeswaran, Head of the Physics department judged the projects. There were first second and third prizes for each class. The prizes were distributed by the chief guest at the end of the day. The day was very fabulous altogether.
