National Science Day - 2019
7 Mar 2019
School of Engineering and Technology (SET-JU), Department of Basic Science celebrated National Science on Day 28 February 2019. National Science Day is celebrated every year to commemorate the discovery of “The Raman Effect” by great Indian physicist Sir C.V. Raman.
The event had an array of activities on the theme of “Green Technology” which exuded an air of science and knowledge. The event had a series of scientific activities in the presence of eminent faculties. The event’s palpable exuberance in the name of science was something that helped in gaining more insight into the importance of being surrounded by science through competitions and talks.
The competitors participated in programs such as “Idea thon” and “Poster Presentation.” Both the events kick-started with burgeoning excitement. In this span of time, we had gone through several rounds of discussion in Idea-thon and were also presented with creative ideas in the Poster Presentation. The main aim of the event was to ensure sustainable development of humankind with the help of science. Several competitors from various departments of the college took part in the event and presented their views on the Green Technology. Ideas ranged from using drones for forming a visual reality and using graphene to protect natural resources more efficiently.
Dr. S.A. Hari Prasad graced the closing ceremony of the occasion, by distributing prizes to all the winners and also applauded their ideas and good faith towards a better society. On the whole, this year’s National Science Day was not only a platform to showcase our ideas and abilities, but also an overall learning experience for everyone involved.
