National Science Day- dare to innovate

Sciencekidz wishes everyone a very happy National Science day!

Kudos to the ones who dare to innovate. Today marks the 91st National Science Day in India and we are proud to be the bearers of innovation for the coming generations.

What is NSD?

NSD or National Science day is celebrated in India on 28 February each year to mark the discovery of the Raman effect by Indian physicist Sir C. V. Raman on the 28 of February in 1928. Raman effect, also known as the scattering, is the change in the wavelength of light that occurs when a light beam is deflected by molecules. When a beam of light traverses a dust-free, and transparent sample of any chemical compound, a small fraction of the light emerges in directions other than that of the incident or incoming beam. This is regarded as a milestone discovery in the field of optics. For his discovery, Sir C.V. Raman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. He became the first-ever Indian to win a Nobel prize in science.

To recognize his efforts and contributions in the field of science, in 1986, the National Council for Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC) asked the Government of India to designate February 28 as National Science Day. The event is now celebrated all over India in schools, colleges, universities, and other academic, scientific, technical, medical, and research institutions. On the occasion of the first NSD (National Science Day), which was on 28 February 1987, NCSTC announced the institution of the National Science Popularization awards for recognizing outstanding efforts in the area of science and communication.

Till today, National Science Day is celebrated in India every year on 28 February. The celebration includes public speeches, radio, TV, science movies, science exhibitions based on various themes and concepts.

Evolution through ages

This day is to remember how science has changed our lives over the years. Humans have come a long way from the first important discovery of mankind- fire to the most important invention- the wheel, and now we dare to strive for electric cars and interplanetary explorations. Looking back, we’ve really come a long way, and we still have a very long way to go. The reason why humans came this far in the scale of evolution is technology. Technology is the art to harness the best out of the available resources. And we as an institute that teaches this art to students are always in the frontline in this era of digitization.

To keep up with the fast-paced world, we make sure that our students go that extra distance to put that extra effort. We are one of those organizations which believe in the students from a very early age and revolutionize the traditional way of teaching students. The institute believes in providing a platform for school-going students to invent and innovate which is apart from the classroom teaching where students do not get the opportunity to implement their logical thinking and come up with something new and encourage them to be problem solvers. Our innovative practices make learning fun and easy. 

 What do we do differently?

We introduce kids to various courses to cover different concepts, and topics so that they have a wide range of choices to pick from. We do not force them into learning something that might not suit their aptitude, we want our kids to make what they learn their own, and pursue what they enjoy and interest the most. We offer both, long-term and short-term courses customized according to the need, and goals of the students. So that each student learns at his or her own pace. Each course includes regular practical sessions, problem sets, and assignments based on real-world problems so that the students can get a clear idea of what lies in the real world. This ensures that the kids get an experience very close to the actual industry. The students are made to think of a solution, ideate, and then implement it with the help of their highly talented mentors. But this is not just some cram-school where students come to mug-up the techno-terms. Not at all. 

Sciencekidz is an environment that enhances the learning experience of a student. Kids with similar interests in technology and diverse backgrounds come together in this institute to create solutions to real-world problems and work in a community. Their energy is utilized in creating something worthwhile and useful. Thus, leading towards a better society.

Why innovate?

The kids keep up with the fast pace of the growing world build thus, being a step ahead, and also contribute their part in making the world a better place. They are motivated to do more than the ordinary and gain a sense of confidence by building something of their own, on their own. The students gain a sense of confidence by being able to create something useful on their own. They learn, they practice, and then they innovate. Isn’t this what national science day is all about!

Now while we’re talking about science day, a fun-fact about Sri C.V Raman is that he learned most of his concepts through observing the world around him. He did not stay buried in books all through the day instead, he used the real-world around him to drive him to question existing phenomena which finally led him to discover the Raman effect.

Our kids need to get out in the real world too. They need to learn by experiencing the available resources around them. The world is never a perfect place and this is the very reason we need innovation! We make kids ready to face the future! We make them capable enough to create the next big platform in technology. And if you want to do it too, then this is the right place to start! We at sciencekidz, always strive for innovation. We educate our students to help them change the world by creating a real-world simulation for them to innovate in. And we are here to help you keep up with the digitally advancing world and do well in every aspect of life.

So, this national science day, let us fill ourselves with dreams and aspirations one more time and yearn to go the distance to explore the limits of evolution. Who is to stop us? With the unstoppable willpower to move ahead to achieve our goal, sciencekidz wishes all the readers a very happy national science day!
