“Imagination is more important than knowledge”
Intra School Science Fest- Saturday, 14th December 2019
"A scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of a planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come and point the way."
Nikola Tesla simply puts the vision of our students into few lines. To build and create something is an altogether different experience. Its in light of yesterday that tomorrow is shaped.
The Intra School Science Fest 2019 was held on Saturday, 14th December 2019 in our school. It was a wonderful experience for all students, teachers and volunteers alike. The students of grade 6th, 7th and 8th learnt not just about their topics and the science behind it but also life skills like teamwork, hardwork and confidence.
Under the guidance of Science teachers the students beamed with pride while explaining their work. The presence of school dignitaries, Dr. Manoj Narwade, Trustee and Secretary Vikhe Patil Foundation, Nandini Ma'am, Joint Secretary and Director of Schools' Programme VPMS and Mrs. Mrinalini Bhosale, Principal VPMS Pune enlightened the event. The criticism and judgement of Dr. Shrikant Pawar and Dr. Aparna Deshpande who were both guests and judges were a role model for all.
Appreciation of great work is always one of the prime duties of teachers. Even though all projects were winners in themselves some just stood out. These were Li-Fi robot of grade 6 by Riya.C, Eshita.P and Aditi.J , Chandrayaan of grade 7 by Kanak.J, Sanjana.P , Anisha.P, Veeranshi.D, Shruti.R, Pavni.N and Soumya.N and Smart cane of grade 8 by Shounak.S, Aryan.K, Chanveer.S and Sahil.T who also bagged the best project of their respective grades. Some other projects like Bio-Plastic of Grade 8, Aerodynamics and jet planes of Grade 7, Projector of Grade 6 and Electro static Precipitator by students of VPMS Lohegaon received special appreciation.
The volunteers from Grade 11 tirelessly helped all teachers, students, judges and parents and were supportive both onstage and backstage. The student photographers were on point with their clicks and were focused throughout.
Overall the exhibition proved to be a successful way of honouring science. Hoping for many more entries next year and with a loadful of praises and pointers the teachers-incharge signed off for the day.
