Exhibition on Science Day 2016 at Golwalkar High School, Pune

February 28th is observed as “National Science Day” every year. Door Step School children celebrated this day by organising a Science Exhibition on February 27, 2016 at Golwalkar High School, Aundh with help of DSS staff and Quest Lab.

Earlier this month, the Door Step School teachers had conducted an exhibition in collaboration with Quest Lab, an initiative by Mrs. Malti Kelkar. The Exhibition had received a very good response. The children insisted that they would have their own exhibition too, as they do every year. Quest is a city based Maths and Science laboratory. Through their innovative teaching methods, they simplify Maths and Science concepts and make them easier for children to learn. Few students from Door Step School have been attending weekly workshops at Quest and they have been enjoying these thoroughly.

The Exhibition on Science Day was inaugurated at the hands of Mrs. Malti Kelkar. The students and entire arrangement took the visitors back in their own childhood days. The experiments were simple, but the enthusiasm of the children was unmatchable. Some of the experiments conducted were - Fire needs oxygen, Air exerts pressure, Water magnifying glass, How to make a Terrarium, How is a Magnetic field created, etc. Used and waste material was utilised in all the experiments. The children greeted everyone visiting their table, listed out the material required for the experiments, and explained the process and concepts in detail.

The credit for the clarity of ideas and Science concepts goes to Quest Lab. Mrs. Malti Kelkar was happy to meet parents and DSS volunteers. As always her enthusiasm knew no bounds when she saw how everyone was actively involved in making the exhibition a success. She also suggested that we should have such events on a bigger scale which will help increase the interest and participation of children.
