The aim is to inculcate a scientific temper and a spirit of inquiry among the students.
The unique exhibition on wheels was inaugurated by Inspector of Schools, Rajiv Kumar Jha at Panchgram Town High School in presence of the school’s SMDC president, Abdul Razzaq Choudhury, Headmaster, Abdul Suqur Choudhury and headmasters and students of nearby schools and madrassas.
Students of local schools enjoyed a carnival-like atmosphere when they were taken to the mobile science exhibition mounted on a bus. Making the best of the opportunity, managements of local schools made arrangements for a visit to the mobile exhibition.
Excited kids were awe-struck at the exhibits lined up. They were seen discussing the subjects among themselves. Some of them pulled out their notes and began to jot down important information.
Experts from RSC were also happy to explain to the kids about the concept behind the exhibits and gadgets on display in the ‘Science on Wheels’.
The mobile science bus will be stationed in the district for about a month and will tour different schools and Madrassas.
“Various interactive models explaining tricky concepts of general science, state-of-the-art telescopes, microscopes, computers, and other gadgets are housed in a special bus which will cover 62 Government-aided and provincialized schools, thus delivering hands-on experiments to schools,” said Jha.
RSC, an organization under the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, provides non-formal science education to students through 3D models, planetarium show, robotics, designing of interactive models, etc.
