CUSAT C-SiS revisited

As a writer, how do you describe the same place and the same set of events a second time without boring your readers? The kids from Pallu Big Boys, St. Joachims and Holy Ghost were taken on a field trip to CUSAT C-SiS on Saturday (27th June), and I was given the arduous task of blogging about it. :D If you don’t know what CUSAT C-SiS means, then you obviously haven’t read Harsha’s post last week (which left me with nothing much to write about).

For most people, reading this post would feel like watching a Bollywood movie which is a scene-by-scene rip-off of the Hollywood flick you have already seen. (I am not doing this by choice; I was totally forced into it.) :P But only the place and the events are the same, the characters aren’t. I will let the pictures do most of the talking and not bore you with too many words. :)

kgnair_address

The kids listening to Dr. K. G. Nair talk about how fascinating Science can be

kgnair_cycle

Dr. K. G. Nair explaining how the boys manage to ride their bicycles taking off their hands from the handle bar :)

mr.bone

Mr. Bone (the fancy name given to the plaster of paris replica of a human skeleton). The teacher explained how he was ‘architecturally’ different from Miss Bone

computerlab

Browsing (Google Earth, Gmail and what not) at the computer lab

flametest

Doing the flame test in the Chemistry lab (A brick red flame means….? Anybody?) :P

telescope

Sightseeing through the telescope (I hope he was really looking at the building that he was supposed to be looking at) ;)

herbalpark

Taking down notes in the Herbal Park

automobile

Learning the functioning of an automobile at the Science Park

solar cells

Solar cells, semi-conductors…..

pulleys

How pulleys help to decrease effort while lifting loads

transferofenergy

No, they are not playing. They are learning about the transfer of… ah, forget it. They were learning and having a great time as well.

timeperiod

Who will come first? No, it is not a race. Just an experiment to find out the effect of the length of a pendulum on time period. ;)

maths

Learning Maths the kinesthetic way

physicsexperiment

Experiment on the refraction of light

There were 92 kids in all (yes, quite a handful for the volunteers). The sequence of events was pretty much the same as last week. It was an informative, fun visit; I am sure all the kids and volunteers would vouch for that.

Image of the day:

vol_playing

One of the volunteers playing, err, I mean, joining in doing the experiments in the Physics lab

    hey this time they were introduced to more stuff i guess…like the bicylce balance, expmnt on refraction of light etc.Nice, n u managed to minimise the “geek”iness of the post :D

    I know I know….Red flame means Stop !! Good post…didn’t get bored…It was a pleasure to see one of my Kid Guatum, who hardly sits still for a sec in my class, doing the light refraction experiment with such concentration….he wants to be a mech engineer..he would have really enjoyed the session !! :)

    @Jr: I was expecting people to say that a brick red flame means red brick particles were burnt instead of a salt. :P Your answer is way more accurate than my expectations. :)

    @Harsha: It could be because there were a lot of 10th standard kids involved this time. Or maybe you weren’t paying enough attention last week and missed out on these. :P

    PS: A brick red flame means that the cation of the salt is calcium. Jeez, this is elementary high school Chemistry. :P
