National Science Day is celebrated in India on 28 February each year to mark the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian Physicist Sir C. V. Raman. For his discovery, Sir C.V. Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. At Oakridge, we celebrated this day with our enthusiastic learners who had participated in various activities. They displayed their creativity, various experiments were conducted, students spoke about their favorite scientists, Ted Talks took place, Role-play as scientist further enhanced their understanding.
This is what our Oakridgers have to say about the event:
Kasturi and Deeksha of MYP Grade 4
The Science day Utkranti 2020 was very informative and we enjoyed it a lot. During the tinkering challenge, we gained a new experience and learnt how to do it by ourselves and we learnt how to collaborate with people we do not know very well. Do it yourself experiments were so much fun. It was amazing to see the outcomes and the fact that we could see where we made a mistake. The documentary we watched was very interesting and very thought-provoking as well. It gave us a lot of new helpful information. The Science quiz was also very interesting.
Nikhita of MYP Grade 4
On Science day, all the students were involved in many activities and understood the world of science. This year the celebrations were amazing and interesting which made me learn new topics in science. The activities planned were incredible and the friendly completion encouraged us to use our knowledge and complete the challenge. We also watched a documentary on rocks and their ores, which helped me, gain some knowledge about the topic. This also includes the DIY experiments, demo classes and the finals of the science day quiz. Overall, this day has been a great experience and I hope the same things happen in the future.
