All Science departments on the Amritapuri Campus came together in enthusiastic celebrations of National Science Day on March 5th and 6th, 2019. Educational institutions all over India commemorate this anniversary of the discovery in physics that won India its first-ever Nobel Prize in Sciences, some eight decades ago. On February 28, 1928, through his experiments, Sir C V Raman discovered the Raman Effect — the inelastic scattering of a photon — discovered in liquids. For this, he was honored with the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. Students association of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics came together under the banner of “JIGNASA” and celebrated Science day.
The inauguration of the programme was on 6th March 2019 at 9.00a.m.by lighting the lamp followed by a prayer at the Amriteswary hall of the main building and the chief guest of the day was Professor S. Sivadas, Retired Professor, Department of Chemistry, CMS College, Kottayam who inaugurated the programme. Dr. V.M. Nanda Kumaran, Principal, School of Arts and Sciences had given felicitation and Dr. Sandhya, Asst. Professor, Dept. of Chemistry delivered the vote of thanks. Followed by that Prof. Sivadas gave a lecture on “General Science
Over a three hundred students from the Schools of Arts and Sciences, worked for several weeks to put up a grand exhibition with scientific experimental setups, Posters and Displays.
They organized Poster making competition, Science fiction writing competition, Debate, Contraption show, Exhibition, Survival game, Name the Reaction, Paper presentation competition, Quiz, Sherlock Math, Break the Paradox, Math world and Steady hand game.
All these exhibitions were conducted outside Amriteswary Hall and Prof. S. Sivadas inaugurated the exhibitions. In the evening the film“The Man Who Knew Infinity” about the Indian Mathematician“Srinivasa Ramanujan FRS” wasplayed at Amriteswary hall. Overall, students have done an excellent job with explaining complex scientific concepts in a simple manner, so that layman can understand the scientific concepts. It was a team effort of all students of Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics and we can say that our students did a great job, certainly comparable to the best anywhere else. India has a scientific heritage that we are proud of. In future years, we will want to highlight that as well.
