H & Sc. Department celebrated National Science Day on February 28, 2018. Prior to the date, faculty conducted essay writing and elocution competitions to bring awareness among the students regarding Science in everyday life. Also there was a science project exhibition where students enthusiastically participated with their exhibits.
On the respective day i.e. on 28-02-2018, Prof. Uma Maheshwar Dahagama, enlightened the students with his speech on Climatic Changes, Environment, Environment Pollutions - risks and dangers the world is going to face in the future. He came up with a point that it is the responsibilityof future generation to save the world from disasters. After his address, he distributed prizes to the winners.
The program was held in the Seminar Hall, H & Sc. Department. Head of the department Dr. V. Radhika, faculty members and students have attended the program.
Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3.14 in the American calendar) around the world. And as it's also the anniversary of Albert Einstein's birth, and now, sadly, the date of Stephen Hawking's death, it puts maths and science firmly into people's minds.
Pi (Greek letter π) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant - the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter - which is approximately 3.14159.
Pi has been part of human knowledge for millennia, but it wasn’t until 1988 that physicist Larry Shaw organized what is now recognized as the first “Pi Day” celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum. Shaw chose March 14, or 3.14 — the first three digits of pi — as Pi Day.
To continue the saga of pi day celebrations, the department of Humanities & Sciences organized several events on 12-03-2018, 13-03-2018 and 14-03-2018, such as GANITH, AMUZING MATH, MATHRONAUT and MATHWALL. Each event was with a theme where students could find some variation in the events.
GANITH was PPT presentation and the theme was “Indian Mathematicians & their contributions”. Students recalled great mathematicians originated from Indian continent and their contributions.
AMUZING MATH: faculty prepared several puzzles and made students to solve them. Students were divided into teams. They have learned to move in groups and learnt leadership skills.
MATHRONAUT: A Quiz program tested student’s mathematical knowledge. A fun and brainstorming session where students enjoyed & learnt a lot
MATHWALL: An event of poster presentation on the theme “Mathematics is the language that nature speaks”. Students prepared charts & posters with different topics and gave presentation to the audience.
For all the events nearly 230 I Year students registered and participated.
