“Science – saga of actuality”
B.D.M.International arranged a maths and science exhibition to bring out the best in students and to witness their hidden creativity and knowledge. The judges for the event were six former students of the school, all now well established in their field of basic science. They have proved their excellence and used their academic and creative knowledge to leave a mark in society and so, were back again to their second home to encourage the youngsters and choose the best among them. The judges were- Anupam Maiti, Rupam Paul, Shreya Bhattacharya, Ishita Banerjee, Sukanya Banerjee and Tithi Sen Chaudhury. The teachers were very happy to see the students after such a long time, and nostalgia soothed hearts. The exhibition took place on 15th, 17th and 18th of May. It started with the diya lighting and ribbon cutting ceremony.
After this, the exhibition was opened to the visitors, which included both students and parents.
Classes I-V presented models and charts on germination, food chain, solar system and global issues like greenhouse effect, water pollution and global warming. Maths exhibition topics included cardinal number, bar-graph volume, fraction, shapes, etc. The exhibition successfully inculcated the use of science in them and gave them a stage to showcase their potential.
An attraction was the ISA corner where students showcased exhibits sent from countries like USA, Russia and Taiwan.
Classes VI-VII impressed spectators with models on artificial satellites and the very interesting black hole. Their approach to science and the way they explained such complicated topics was appreciable.
Senior students were given a topic- “Human Welfare” – on which they presented innovative models. Remembering the problems of the tech-savvy world and also of remote, rural habitations, models were made on topics like LPG gas leakage, anti-theft house, solar city, etc. Judges and teachers praised their talents and also learned a lot from the youthful genius minds.
The last day of the exhibition welcomed all the parents and family members of the students to let them see the awe-inspiring creations of their children.
The exhibition was not only about science and studies though, the students enjoyed a lot. Kids were overjoyed to see such “nearly impossible” models created by their seniors. More than the compliments and praises of the judges, the reactions of the kids made the participants feel more encouraged. The friendly competition among the participants was interesting and each learned something new from their pals. The students were all enthusiastic and exuberant.
Thus, this exhibition enriched the storehouse of the students’ memories and added some golden moments to be cherished in the years to come.
