The Children Library Complex’s recently played host to the Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) on it’s annual festival, and it was a delight to see the young minds of our future engaged in a world of scientific wonders as we brought four of our major demonstrations forward.
One of the most crowd-favorite was the balloon experiment with liquid nitrogen. Children were asked whether it was possible to fit three balloons into a small box. With resounding “NO’s”, they watched as the balloons were submerged in liquid nitrogen, causing them to shrink. The magical part came when the balloons were retrieved – they expanded back to their original shape! This experiment not only showcased the fascinating properties of liquid nitrogen but also taught kids about its low temperature and the effects of extreme cold on objects.
14th July, 2023, marks the day when Mr. Shaheer Niazi captivated the audience not only with his words but also with the mesmerizing visuals that held everyone’s gaze fixed on the screen. The illustrations showcased the stars, planets, and the enchanting Milky Way, bringing to life everything we had heard about.
Three of our esteemed members Muhammad Ayyaz, Muneeb ul Haq and Dr Muhammad Mustafa led activities involving lasers and microscopy with interactive games that combined fun with educational explanations on the subject of matter.
This is all a small step towards establishing a societal and educational system that does not limit the potential of science but rather empowers individuals from different socio-economic backgrounds to benefit from scientific knowledge. Let’s join our effort to create an inclusive framework that makes science accessible for everyone!
The recently launched Public Lecture series themed “Pakistan k Khazanay” broke its ground with it’s first lecture, delivered by Dr. Uzma Khan, Asia Coordinator of River Dolphin Rivers Initiative by WWF Pakistan on May 22nd, 2023 at Crescent Model Higher Secondary School, Shadman, Lahore.
This lecture enlightened students, teachers, and the general public about the challenges faced by Asian river dolphins, particularly the Indus River Dolphin, and introduced a pioneering conservation strategy.
On March 17 and 18, 2023, KSS set its course towards Eminabad, a town near Gujranwala, where Government Islamia High School No. 2 opened its gates for us. The Mela incorporated two of KSS’s biggest demonstrations; The LHC Tunnel and Khalai Kachwa (planetarium) which were a huge success.
The beaming laser show, football with protons at LHC, peek into the nano world via a microscopy show and shrinking balloons while learning leidenfrost effect were highlights of the mela. Wonders of space science were not only explored through the planetarium, but the solar telescope made it possible for people to descry the sun.
