|KSS visits “Brain Of Lahore 2023”
Registration: Open to all.
Date: December 14, 2023
Time: 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Venue: The Trust School Aamir Town Campus
On the 14th of December 2023, The Trust School Amir Town Branch hosted the prestigious “Brain of Lahore 2023” event, and KSS was invited to participate as an exhibitor, presenting captivating demonstrations.
Our first presentation was the Microscopy Show, a fascinating exploration using a digital microscope. Envision a group of children gathered in awe as we delved into the microscopic world, prompting intriguing observations:
“Do bees really have leg hair?”
“Look at the ant’s teeth up close!”
Parents and teachers were keenly interested, inquiring about the model of the microscope. Recognizing its budget-friendly nature, many expressed a strong interest in acquiring it for their young learners.
Following this, the Snake Pendulum, captivated the audience with the graceful dance of pendulum blobs, resembling a slithering snake. We explained the science behind it, discussing the dependence of pendulum oscillations on factors such as string length, pendulum bob mass, and swing amplitude.
Mostly the audience was entranced seeing the beautiful waves the blobs made. A student was encouraged enough to discuss how he can make one at his home.
The subsequent part of the afternoon involved insightful conversations with teachers and parents on instilling curiosity in children amidst the era of digital screens. We introduced them to our science outreach activities and annual science melas. However, the highlight was undoubtedly the joyous interaction with the young participants.
A heartfelt acknowledgment is extended to Mohsina Asif and Ayesha Jamal for meticulously curating the stall and embodying the essence of true science communicators.
