P.G Department of Physics, KanyaMahaVidyalaya, Jalandhar in collaboration with KMV Institution’s Innovation Council (IIC) has organized online session on “Journey that leads to Frugal Innovations”. KanyaMahaVidyalaya, Jalandhar an autonomous and heritage institution has always stressed upon innovations in science education for enabling smart and inclusive growth of students. In this regard P.G. Department of Physics has developed some unique and innovative techniques to understand science involved in our daily life easily. These techniques not only make sciences an interesting subject but also inspire students to opt research as their career. With the spirit to popularize sciences among students of other institution, an online mentoring session was organized which was attended by more than 100 participants including KMViets along with faculty and students of our mentee institute- Government College, Ropar. This mentoring session was organized to motivate students towards scientific innovations. In the session basic concepts of Physics were explained by demonstrating various innovative experiments. Experiments like Archimedes Principle, Bernoulli’s Principle, Surface Tension etc. were shown by KMViets. Audience was amazed to know the process of formation of Rainbow, significance of Air Pressure. Audience also learnt how to generate electricity without using motor. Overall event received overwhelming response from the participants and appriciation from the mentee institute- Government College, Ropar.Prof.(Dr.) Atima Sharma Dwivedi applauded efforts of P.G. Department of Physics. “Engaging students in science content requires educators to help students see themselves as scientists and engineers instead of passively observing other people doing the work of science,” she said.
