Innovative Experiments in Home Labs!
Posted December 09, 2021
The Science faculty of the Middle School engaged the students in conducting experiments and practical learning although miles away from the laboratory. The activity to understand the concept of electrolysis and conductivity of liquids was explained to the students and was asked to be done practically as an assignment. The students carried out the activity with utmost enthusiasm where they tried out the experiment with various liquids like tap water, lemon water, soap solution, and vinegar. The process of electrolysis is carried out by taking a liquid like lemon juice in a container and inserting two electrodes in it which are connected to the terminals of a battery with a bulb between them. The bulb is lit indicating that the liquid is a conductor of electricity.
The students carried out this activity and sent the video recording for the teachers to witness the completion of the assignment proving to them how well they have understood the concept and learning does not stop with any barriers if imparted with a pure heart.
A Knowledge Full of Spice!
Posted November 24, 2021
A thought-provoking virtual camp, based on the book ‘Observation and Insight’, organized for the students of Class IX from October 11 to October 16, 2021, aimed at honing the junior youth's observation skills and enhancing their spiritual and scientific capabilities. It is the school's innate belief that these empowered junior youth will grow into active supporters of the well-being of their communities.
The camp was followed by a parents' gathering on October 31, 2021, elucidating the physical concepts of light connected to the spiritual notions of the light of unity, the light of knowledge, and the light of oneness of humanity. The parents thoughtfully studied the quotation: "So powerful is the light of unity that it can illuminate the whole earth". They were also apprised of the fact that their children were bestowed the opportunity to have profound discussions on the order and purpose in the Universe while they were participating in the camp. The following quotation was readout for the parents in this context, "When we carefully investigate the kingdoms of existence and observe the phenomena of the universe about us, we discover the absolute order and perfection of creation". They were involved in a discussion about medicinal plants that can help to maintain health and these were duly identified.
After the gathering, the students and parents re-joined the main group for the virtual tour to Munnar Spice Plantation in Kerala. India is very popular for spices all around the world. Kerala is known as the spice garden of India as it has a variety of spices and is world-famous for it. The students were introduced to the vast variety of spices and understood the importance and uses of such a vast variety of spices.
Hydroponic Farm was another virtual tour, located in Mumbai which was a wondrous world of spices and vegetables. Hydroponics is the method of growing crops without soil. It is a clean and effective way to grow nutrient-rich veggies in a small, contained environment. It uses less water, has fewer chemicals and the plants are a lot healthier.
These elevating interactions brought the beloved parents on a congenial platform, evoking a deep understanding of the true education being imparted to the apples of their eyes!
Delving into the Spirit of Faith!
Posted November 24, 2021
The students, teachers, and parents of Class VIII met for an illuminated gathering based on the book, ‘Spirit of Faith’ on October 29, 2021, wherein four quotations of the book were discussed and comprehended together to understand how Science and Religion go hand in hand. This gave the parents an opportunity to experience the joy their children find in learning at New Era.
“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and called the adventure- Science.”
The discussions on such qutations were followed by a workshop,‘Be an Astronomer’ especially arranged for the junior youth so that they don’t miss their yearly JYSEP camps. It was an informative session regarding the universe, the planets, their position and the celestial beings in the solar system. The different types of telescopes and their working was also shown virtually. The students were absolutely delighted to watch and gain knowledge from the experienced spokesperson who also sent a link for an application that they could download and access astronomical views without the help of a telescope. It was a thrilling journey into the unknown whereby the curious minds of the children enthralled themselves with beautiful images and knowledge imparted to them. The live images of astronauts working in space stations and different videos depicting their daily lives, along with their eating and drinking habits imparted a fascinating adventure to the students who were captivated with the spectacular images. The story of the Big Bang Story was also shown to them stoking their spirit of inquiry. Finally, they were given an activity to make a model of a Spacecraft which they actively prepared and submitted to the class groups thus ending this spellbinding trip into outer space which made them delve deep into the life of the spirit!
