It’s better to see something then to hear about it a thousand times.” Every expedition made is an experience which leaves students pondering and implores them to think.
Mayo College Girls’ School endeavours to inculcate a holistic approach towards learning amongst the students. Continuing this legacy an “Educational Trip” to VSSE (Vikram Sarabhai Space Exhibition) at the Space Application Centre, Ahmedabad was organized for the Science and Mathematics students of Class 12th. Educational tours to organizations like SAC (Space Applications Centre) often spark students’ curiosity and imagination and encourage them to become increasingly involved in Sciences.
This center is dedicated to Sir Vikram Sarabhai for his contribution to the Space Research Program. A model of a Satellite Launcher at the entrance of the center fascinated all the students. Two enthralling 3D movies were shown to the students on the process of launching of Space Crafts and the activities of Astronauts in Space ship. The mechanism of launching satellites was explained by the demonstrators through LED screen too. The visit was really a great experience and students learnt about more about geostationary and polar satellites.
This trip was also organized keeping in mind that the nation celebrates Dr. Vikram Sarabhai’s centenary year of birth in 2019 who is the Father of India’s Space Programme.
