The students of Std. 3, 4 and 5 put on a great science show on the 12th of September. They had to choose an age appropriate topic to study and explain and present it. Some students had models, some had experiments and some had theories to help them explain their topic.

They came in early. They had to get registered and set up their tables. With the help of their parents, they put up their charts and got everything arranged. Soon after that, there was a short a pep talk given by Arpita Karkarey madam. Then, the children were all set to tackle the audience.

There were three rounds of judging that each group faced. The judges were also pleased to see that students were quite thorough with their topics. The point to really appreciate here is that normally kids so young do not go in for such demonstrations and never stand up to such grilling. But here we had students as young as 8 years of age go through the whole process.

This was a good opportunity for the children to check the depth of their knowledge. Researching helps gain a better perspective on a topic. Explaining a concept makes the understanding sounder. This whole activity really added a lot of value to every child. We are sure they are sharper, smarter and have a better scientific attitude at the end of the science fair!

Parents, children and staff were all decked up in their traditional finery. There was a grand display of mud forts made by the children. There were diyas, lanterns and rangolis too.
