Oakridgers launched their rockets at Oak Science Fest on National Science Day

As India celebrates the National Science Day on February 28 every year to spread the message of the importance of science and its application among the people, Oakridge International School, Bangalore Campus organized an Oak Science Fest to celebrate it.

On this day in 1928, Indian Scientist Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman discovered a phenomenon of scattering of photons which was later known as ‘Raman Effect’ after his name. After two years in 1930, he got Nobel Prize for this remarkable discovery and this was the first Nobel Prize for India in the field of Science. To mark the discovery of his famous phenomenon National Science Day is celebrated in India on the day each year.

Oak Science Fest witnessed students learning to create their own rockets and successfully launching it. Everyone was seen busy with one or the other events which were related to the field of science. Students were deeply involved in the learning procedure of launching of rockets and the science that works behind the process.

With this regard, Oakridge invited Society for Space Education, Research, and Development (SSERD) to our campus to give a good insight into space and science that works. Ms. Nikitha, the CEO of SSERD says, “The SSERD Team is very glad to be part of National Science Day 2018, organized by Oakridge International School at their Bangalore Campus. Our aim of spreading love towards Space was achieved successfully by organizing Hydro Rocketry Workshop for students from Class VI to IX. The students thoroughly enjoyed learning the principles behind the working of Rockets, Designing their own Rocket and Launching to the great heights.”

She also added, “There were around 200 students with nearly 40 varieties of Rockets. We are really happy because at the end we could see a lot of happy faces after learning about Rocket Science and the procedure of launching a rocket.”

The Team thanked Oakridge School Administration Team, Science Team and Ms. Sana for approaching them to organize this wonderful Workshop on the National Science Day.
