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. :)
The kids listening to Dr. K. G. Nair talk about how fascinating Science can be
Dr. K. G. Nair explaining how the boys manage to ride their bicycles taking off their hands from the handle bar :)
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
Browsing (Google Earth, Gmail and what not) at the computer lab
Doing the flame test in the Chemistry lab (A brick red flame means….? Anybody?) :P
Sightseeing through the telescope (I hope he was really looking at the building that he was supposed to be looking at) ;)
Taking down notes in the Herbal Park
Learning the functioning of an automobile at the Science Park
Solar cells, semi-conductors…..
How pulleys help to decrease effort while lifting loads
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.
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. ;)
Learning Maths the kinesthetic way
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.
