As the Daan Utsav (the festival of ‘Joy of Giving’) took off this year from 2 -8 October, 2018, on the second last day, October 7, 2018, the Volunteer Service Organization (VSO) team at School of Life Sciences collaborated with our Manipal OSA Student Chapter to make “Teach to Each” success.
Around 10 volunteers from School of life Sciences went to Kadiyali High School and taught the kids basic Science concepts using the OSA kits, scientific experiments, videos and through other creative means. We taught them our basic refraction, reflection, diffraction, polarization, magnification, density and hologram concepts using the OSA suitcase goodies while the other teams showed colourful chemistry experiments, explained the periodic table and showed some fascinating Biology videos in English and Kannada for their ease.
The kids were also given pencils and sweets to widen the smiles on theirs faces. And as a gesture of gratitude, they treated us volunteers with soft drinks. It was a beautifully spent Sunday and the Joy of Giving was worth it.
