Reaching out has no boundaries and no vacations halts education. So off I was, on a Thursday morning (June 27, 2018) to Shikhantar School in Kathmandu, Nepal. The students were sad that there was going to be another class but when they saw some kits in my hand and a projector screen lit, they were eager and excited!
Students of Grade 7,8,9 and 10 gathered in the room and asked me to introduce myself. I proudly told them about Biotechnology, about MAHE in Manipal and about OSA. They looked impressed and I knew I couldn’t let them down by the end of the session.
We started off with a short video about how Science could be interesting out of the textbook. Then we talked and saw what were the properties of light using videos and tools in the OSA kit and suitcase. I demonstrated some fascinating experiments on refraction to capture their interest. We then learnt the concepts of Magnification, Polarization, Diffraction and Total internal reflection using a lenses, polarizer, grating and Hologram. The students got to try and experience with all the tools themselves. I handed over some tools including periodic table, grating, polarizer, thermal patch, etc. to the Science teacher so the students can access again and learn.
Towards the end the number of science lovers had increased in the room and I could see some budding scientists of the coming decade.
