- Summary about the program:
Kanya Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar an Autonomous and Heritage institution has always stressed upon innovations in science education for enabling smart and inclusive growth of students. P.G. Department of Physics, Kanya Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar is constantly working in the directions of imparting science education through innovative teaching methodologies. Recently, P.G. Department of Physics in collaboration with KMV Institution Innovation Council has organized a Mentor’s Program named “Popularizing Sciences among School Students” to inculcate scientific temperament among students. Faculty of 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 objective to popularize sciences among students, faculty of Physics department has devised novel and interesting demonstrations elaborating scientific concepts like longitudinal and transverse waves, magnetic lines, Lenz law, different types of mirrors etc. Students learnt difference between sound and light waves and observed the behaviour of waves while propagating through different mediums. Students were able to identify types and nature of mirrors they use in their day to day life. Students were amazed to observe the behaviour of magnet while falling through plastic and metallic pipe. Students were surprized to see the patterns formed by iron fillings around magnets and found them identical to diagrams in their science books. KMV’s Mentors Program “Popularizing Sciences among School Students” has proved to be a great success as students have learnt basic concepts of sciences with the fun activities. 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.
