Abstract: 

The progression towards a more scientifically immersed community continues as the KSS plans to organize the third Science Mela in October, 2019, in collaboration with the Ali Institute of Education. Since 2019 is the International Year of Periodic Table, our Mela this year will be focused on the wonders of chemistry including elements, minerals, compounds, mining and major industrial processes. The other sets of exhibits will be divided into several parts such as life sciences, wildlife flora and fauna, AI and electronics, mineral and agricultural resources and space sciences, to name a few. The Lahore Science Mela is open-to-all and invites interest from science organizations, aspiring scientists and researchers, professionals and other potential exhibitors. We coridally send an open invitation to all citizens of Pakistan, especially the studetns, teachers, parents and senior citizens to help us initiate the Science Mela Culture in our beloved country.

The LSM Series comprises of annual science festivals organized to cater to the need for the promulgation of scientific ideas and news among the general public. The event is accesible to all and we do not charge any fee from the exhibitors or the visitors. We gather students, teachers, parents and senior citizens from different parts of Lahore and the surroundings and make science available to them in its most simplest and comprehensive form. Apart from being temporary hubs of practical and experimental science, the Melas also become a platform for emerging scientists, science clubs, non-profit science organizations, tech startups, and other government and non-government based bodies to introduce themselves to the community. 

 

We welcome the Cricket matches between Pakistan and Sri Lanka on October 5-6, 2019 in Lahore. To ensure your smooth participation in the Lahore Science Mela 2019, we have re-scheduled it to October 12-13, 2019

Abstract: 
Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) and Ali Institute of Education (AIE) have initiated a joint Teacher Training Program, فکر انگیز سائنسی تعلیم Thought-provoking Science Education. In this program, we will focus on teaching of practical physics through thought-provoking, innovative and exciting experiments. The program comprises of three independent interactive workshops, the second of which will take place on 22nd to 24th November, 2018 at the Ali Institute of Education, Ferozepur Road, Lahore.
 
The purpose of this workshop is to enable physics teachers to learn about the culture of modern physics experimentation preparing them to design and deliver modern, exciting and insightful physics experiments to their students. By the end of the workshop, the participants will be able to get exposure to
 
  1. building experimental hardwarefrom low-cost items;
  2. use modern gadgets and techniques such as video tracking and physics using the smartphone;
  3. plotting and interpretation of data, and
  4. connecting the laboratory to the classroom.
 
The hand-picked experiments to be offered in this workshop are designed based on topics selected from the syllabi of Grades 9 to 12 (matric to intermediate) and O levels. These four-five experiments will not be a replica of experiments traditionally performed by students in our laboratories, rather they are thought-inspiring experiments designed to highlight how physics practicals, in our opinion, should be conducted in an enabling, skills-oriented and contemporary fashion. All experiments will be low-cost and will become fodder for ideas for teachers who could recreate their own experiments to amplify physics topics in their textbooks.
 
Coverage areas:The coverage of these experiments will be from mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, basic electronics, waves and vibrations.
 
Laboratory skills:measurement, uncertainties, graphing, data processing, using the camera and the smartphone for physics experiments, building hardware, connecting theory with experiment, interpreting experimental results.
 
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the workshop. If you teach physics, especially practical physics, conduct laboratory training for your students, want to set up new labs, are motivated about physics education and would like to usher in radical reforms to how physics is taught in your school, or are a headmaster or headmistress and would like to nominate some talented individual from your school or college, please fill out the registration form.
 
Registration is required to participate in the workshop. Once the registration form is filled, the participants will be selected and shortlisted on basis of their willingness to learn, background and inclination towards practical aspects of teaching. Further details are provided below:

Numerical Simulations of RF Induced Heating in MRI

Registration: 
Open to all.

M.Sc. Seminar Room, University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore
Abstract: 

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a very useful medical procedure to get high quality images inside the body. Felix Bloch and Edward Purcell discovered the magnetic resonance phenomenon independently in 1946. They were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1952. The use of MRI is increasing every day and has become a very useful tool for diagnosis. However, patients with artificial implants, e.g. heart pace makers, DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) systems, which are used for Parkinson's disease, IPG (Implantable Pulse Generator), used for generating pulses for DBS, are in severe danger for MRI testing. The problems for such patients going under MRI are that the generation of the induced eddy currents inside the metallic implants that causes heating. This heating, if goes above a certain level, can cause brain damage and can even result in death. We are doing numerical computations using FDTD (Finite Difference Time Domain) to estimate the heating produced inside the body using the human data set.

Smart Antenna Applications for Code Division Multiple Access Wireless Systems

Registration: 
Open to all.

M.Sc. Seminar Room, Electrical Engineering Department, University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore
Abstract: 

Wireless communications for mobile telephone and data transmission is currently undergoing very rapid development. The emerging wireless systems will incorporate considerable signal processing intelligence in order to provide advanced services such as multimedia transmission. In order to make optimum use of available bandwidth, many wireless systems operate as multiple access systems, e.g. Direct Sequence Code Division Multiple Access (DS-CDMA), in which the users are multiplexed by distinct code waveforms. Two major factors that limit the performance of DS-CDMA systems are multiple access interference and multipath channel distortion. Many advanced signal processing techniques have been proposed to combat these factors. Among these techniques, one of the more promising is the use of Smart or Adaptive antennas. This seminar provides an introduction to Smart Antennas for cellular systems. It looks at the various factors affecting propagation in a wireless channel environment and reviews the different approaches towards implementation of adaptive beamforming algorithms for CDMA systems. Finally it reports on the simulation strategy adopted to evaluate the performance of smart antenna systems for CDMA.
