Type of Activity: The program was presided by Dr Antony Gomes, Ex Professor & Head of the Department of Physiology- University of Calcutta. It was interactive lecture activity with concluded with a Quiz Session
Organizing Department: IQAC Serampore Grils College
Place of Activity: Room Number- NB8, NB9, Serampore Girls’ College
Date and Time of Activity- 13th May 2022- Time 11 o’clock- 2p.m.
Number of Attendee- Students: - 55, Teachers – 30
Objective of the Programme- In today’s era education is not only confined to read and write. It is now linked to the holistic development of the students. Now the challenge and the demands in the market are not only limited to having knowledge, but it is also more about how impeccably one can present that knowledge. The institution organized the Science exhibition as a Competition for the students, so that they can represent their creativity, their knowledge to the world through face to face interaction.
A science exhibition is a wonderful tool that engages students in learning new facts in the following ways:-
Organizing Department:- It was an Open platform where students from different departments participated. But the primary work of organizing the exhibition was done by the Departments of Science- Serampore Girls’ College
Place of the Activity: Within campus –Room Number VB3 and VB4
Date and Time of the Activity:- Date- 13.05.2023, Time- 2:00 p.m.
Outcome:-These exhibitions help to develop in students a more scientific attitude towards problems and challenges that they face in life. Students apply their classroom knowledge in these exhibitions and develop the taste for learning by doing.
It shifts them from theoretical study to practical implementation and they avail the opportunity to apply their ideas in unique ways. Once transformed their idea into a project, they showcase it in front of others and get acknowledged which further boosts their confidence. Therefore, these exhibitions make students more confident, creative, future-ready, and of course learners for life.
