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

 

From Space Missions to Space Explorations

A public talk by Mr. Mansoor Ahmed, Associate Director, Astrophysics Projects Divsion, NASA
Sponsors & Collaborators: 

Ali Institute of Education Astrobiology Network of Pakistan Lahore Astronomical Society

Registration: 
Registration is required.
Date: 
29th October, 2018
Time: 
10:00 am
Venue: 
Mustafa Hall, Ali Institute of Education
Abstract: 

Khwarizmi Science Society has organized a public lecture by Mr. Mansoor Ahmed with the collaboration of Ali Institute of Education, Astrobiology Network of Pakistan and Lahore Astronomical Society.

Ever since the humans started to think, they have been curious about the heavens. Over the years, we have taken advantage of technological advances to gain better understanding of the universe. In some cases, this curiosity has propelled the technological advances that have been extremely beneficial in our daily lives as well. In this talk, Mr. Ahmed will discuss how our knowledge has expanded via space based astronomy with observatories such as Hubble Space Telescope and what we hope to learn with the James Web Space Telescope. This talk will further discuss the mysteries yet to be solved, missions yet to be achieved and the technological advances yet to be made. Mr. Ahmed will challenge the young generations of today to finding the answers to some the key questions for the humanity:

 How does the universe work?

 How did the universe evolve from the “Big Bang” to what it looks like today?

 Where did we come from?

 Is there life beyond earth?

 Can humans inhabit other planets? 

The KSS and its collaborators cordially invite their members and friends to be a part of this remarkable discussion. Registration is required for all attendees.

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 the first phase of the program, we will focus on teaching of practical physics through thought-provoking, innovative and exciting physics experiments. The program comprises of three independent interactive workshops, the first of which will take place on 25th to 27th October, 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

  • building experimental hardware from low-cost items;

  • use modern gadgets and techniques such as video tracking and physics using the smartphone;

  • plotting and interpretation of data, and

  • 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, heat, electromagnetism and waves.

 

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:

  • Date: 25th - 27th October, 2018

  • Venue: Ali Institute of Education, Ferozepur Road, Lahore
