As we know, the basis of music is science and music is incomplete without science and vice versa, this program also paid a heartfelt tribute to our very own Swar Kokila, Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar ji. This programme was also dedicated to famous Indian scientists who helped us shape our nation.
Under this programme, hypocritical sadhus and tantriks were also exposed, who by taking the help of science, entrap innocent people. Apart from this, a street play was also organized explaining the usefulness of proper management of e-waste. Through this play, students also threw light on ‘My Waste – My Responsibility’: solid, liquid and electronic wastes.
Pre Primary children also conducted and exhibited science experiments. Primary school students explained the development of transport and science. They also explained the working model of the solar system. Students of computer science showed the development of computers, communication and made a coded robot. The purpose of this exhibition was to create an interest in science among students and audience and fight superstitions, increase the ability to learn through the use of science and take the country forward on a scientific path, said the Principal of the school Mrs. Aditi Basu Roy.
