KSS goes to the Children’s Literature Festival 2019

Children’s Literature Festival is a social movement by Idara-e-Taleem-o-Agaahi with a goal to expand the culture of reading for creativity, imagination and multi-sensory stimulation beyond textbooks and tests. CLF encourages children to read, teachers and schools to adopt innovative reading/learning methodologies encouraging critical thinking and empowering children as learners. We cordially invite the members of KSS and our friends to visit and take part in the¬†CLF 2019.

Venus’s Transit

Venus’s Transit

On¬†6th¬†June from sunrise to about 09:30 AM Venus¬†will pass through the disk¬†of¬†our sun. Our resident astronomer¬†Umair¬†Asim¬†will live broadcast it through¬†Khwarizmi¬†Science Society’s Channel of¬†Night Skies Network¬†using¬†sophsticated¬†Halpha¬†solar filters and and a¬†C14 Scope. For most living humans June 5/6, 2012 will be their last chance to see Venus cross in front of the Sun. The last transit of Venus occurred in 2004, but after this June the world will have to wait until 2117 for the next one. This historic viewing will also give us a chance of measuring the earth-sun distance. So keep in touch with us. In order to join this event, please logon to the Society’s channel on Night Skies Network! See you there.

Development of Science and its Impact on Society

Development of Science and its Impact on Society

Science is not only provides a base for modern technology but it is also a part of human culture. It enriches the human civilization because of its intrinsic value. There is another aspect of culture which is concerned with cultural traits of society and its social evolution. Science has made tremendous contributions in the social evolution of humankind. In my talk, I want to explore this relationship between evolution of science and social evolution.
