Einsteinonce said ,
“Visions are only hallucinations until experimented”.The moment we begin to experiment our ideas in order to comprehend the incomprehensible, we enter the world of science.Science isn’t merely about finding a solution to a complex problem but also the sole factor behind the evolution of the universe and mankind. It is a Pandora of bizarre ideas which compels all of us to think beyond our limited knowledge.
Science at MCGS , isn’t just limited to the information that students gather within the four walls of the classrooms or just from their text books .The science society aims at making each student to think beyond her questionable intelligence and provides ample amount of exposure.
Throughout the year there are various activities conducted by the Science Department which is both fun and an enriching experience for the students. Within the periphery of the school there are various inter house competitions held such as Quiz, Mimes, Poster/Chart Making, Science Fiction Writing, Symposiums, Jingle ,Best out of waste, etc. Keeping in mind that our students need to know much more than what is given in their text books we also conduct intra class competitions which includes making of presentations/group discussions on a certain topic taught in class. The idea of letting the students learn science and understand it while playing led to the construction of the Science Park at MCGS.
Robotic lab foundation was laid in year 2015. Robotics help students in demystifying complex technologies and instill in them technological competence. In our well equipped Robomatic lab students engage deeply and creatively with the challenges and activities they are given. They design their own lots with versatile kits and also program them to do specific tasks. This enhances critical thinking and problem solving skills. The lab also doubles up as Mathematics activity lab where students do funtool to solve mathematical problems on computer.
We conduct quite a few workshops for students which helps them to broaden the horizon of their knowledge and to think out of the box. We have been conducting Aero Modelling and Robotics workshops for the students every year. Our students participated in a Science Camp by Atlantis which gave them immense practical knowledge about the working of various Physics principles such as Aeronautics, optics and magnetism. It was last year that our girls attended the Mission Discovery hosted by Shiv Nadar School, Noida. There they were trained by NASA astronauts and professors on the working of Space and were also given tasks to perform.
In the year 2016, our school took an initiative to bring forth an amalgamation of the three streams – Science, Commerce and History and host the COSCTACH CONCLAVE for the first time ever and we continue to host it every year. Schools from various parts of the country participate and the participants raise the bar of performance with every passing conclave.
Students at MCGS are also given the opportunity to go for educational trips to the well renowned CERN, Geneva and NASA, the dream place of every aspiring science student. These visits instill in our students a love and interest for Science. The enriching experience and the knowledge that they gather from these trips compels them to think beyond their reach, question every answer to satisfy their curiosity.
Throughout the year the Science department aims at bringing out the scientist in every student, giving them a plethora of opportunities and exposure to ensure that every girl has that bubble of curiosity in her head that will push her to apply the practicality and principles of science in everything around her.
