Jan 22, 2018

‘Epsilon’- Association of the Department of Physics at SJEC organized a one-day workshop on 22 January 2018 for students to prepare models and experimental setup in Physics required for the outreach program to be held in rural schools.  

The workshop started at 9:30 am in Physics Lab, Academic Block III. Dr Vincent Crasta welcomed the students and the staff present for the workshop. He also briefed the students on the purpose of conducting the outreach programme, the Educational Social Responsibilities (ESR) of the College and the outline of the events for the day and in the outreach programme.

The students were divided into two groups of 5 for primary and 7 for high school outreach programme. The topics from high school and primary school syllabus on which the experiments should be set up, models and PPT to be prepared were discussed and finalized. After a short tea break, the experiments were carried out with the help of the Faculty and the students were explained about theoretical aspects and models.

After the lunch, students were asked to prepare PPT on the topics to be presented in Kannada with animations and video clips to make the presentation more effective. Later the materials to be taken for the outreach were procured were segregated according to high school and primary school syllabus. The workshop ended at 5 pm.

The workshop was a grand success and provided a platform for students to work in groups and improve their knowledge in Basic Physics concepts by setting up experiments personally. It was a good work experience for faculty too to guide students towards the outreach programme.
