It was a special day for the members of the Astronomy Club of Jain Public School. Palpable excitement prevailed in the room as children received their astronomy kits with their first ever telescopes.
The session was conducted in two phases. First, children were given a briefing on the parts of a telescope and its functions. The future astronomers then got to look at the pictures of the world biggest telescopes. They were then taught about the Stellarium app and how to use it to view the celestial objects for any given date and time.
They then assembled their telescopes and proceeded to the ground to begin their journey of star gazing. The excited group then worked under the guidance of the SPACE facilitators to view the Moon and Mars using their very own Telescopes. There was cheering and excitement as each of them located and viewed the celestial bodies. As the stars gazed at the future astronomers of JPS, they proudly carried their kits home to continue their passion of star gazing.
Education must be hands on , the one which bridges the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge. To achieve the same Jain Public School organized a two days Night sky watching trip to Yelagiri Hills in association with SPACE. Students got a full hands on training and orientation about the night sky gazing followed by lunar telescopic observation. The young leaders were thrilled to view the moon with craters and bubbles through the telescope. Seeing planet Mars was a life time experience for them. Kids bonded over bonfire with lot of discussion on constellation stories . Every child got planishpehre which is the projection of 3 D spherical sky on 2D plane. students hand hands on experience of launching air and hydro rockets. All were felicitate with " In to the Realms of stars " Certificate . It was a life time experience for our young leaders
The space workshop began with an interactive quick recap of coordinates in the sky.The topic of discussion was DSLR camera which is used to take photographs of celestial bodies with great precision.Several features such as LCD display,sensor,memory,shutter and its speed,aperture,lens,zoom ring,focus,live view,auto and manual mode,AV,need for tripod,crosskeys and the detailed functioning of the camera were explained.The values each of the parameters have to be set for a specific kind of photograph were explained followed by the task set given to children were they had to take photographs under specified conditions.Interesting activities like ghost photography and laser light painting were also done.
Second session of the Space Astronomy Club was held at Jain Public school. A highly inspiring and fun filled session where children were taught about locating stars and constellations on the sky map and celestial globe using the grid, finding out the location parameters of the given objects and solving riddles based on the same, celestial objects, stars and constellations. Various hands on activities were also conducted. Students will be given their personalized telescopic kit which they will be using in future sessions.
Session 1 - In the words of Plato,"The beginning is the most important part of the work".
The Astronomy club began today with a energetic and inspiring session. The aspiring young minds were treated to an informative session by Mr.Neeraj of SPACE. The session began with an interactive orientation session. The children were advised on various ways to propagate the significance of astronomy to the world. Under the facilitator's guidance, students came up with activities to accomplish as part of the club.
This was followed by an interesting discussion on Comets, namely their origin, importance, location, missions, effect of collision, etc.
After a demo, the students enthusiastically created their own comets and reinforced their theoretical learning practically.
The session concluded with selecting the crew members of the club and a group photo.
A very interesting and informative hands on workshop was organized for the students of grades 3 to 10 and their Parents. The work shop was conducted by Ms. Manali, the city head from SPACE.
The audience was engaged with wonderful information on astronomical science, scope of Astronomy human advancement and scientific development. India's latest contribution to the Space Research programmes basics of rocketry, was appraised. It was a matter of pride to know that our country's very first mission to Mars is the cheapest and most successful mission. Our rockets are totally indigenous and thus are the most cheap and efficient ones used world over to launch satellites. Even developed nations like England used our rockets for their satellite launch.
Concepts like milestones in space research projects like the Mission to sun , Aditya Mission; Space Tourism and its future scope were discussed. The students were very elated to learn about the Space Astronomy club which would soon be opened in the school. As members of the club students would get a plethora of opportunities to learn and do things with tools. They would study comets and asteroids, grid mapping, creating a sky map, astrophotography, safe solar observation, launching of hydro rockets ,stellarium etc. It would be a yer long study duration comprising 24 sessions. The highlight if the programme was however the overnight camping and night sky observation. Students would learn to handle professional telescopes. They would also benefit with enrichment kit which would have a telescope and many other things.
The benefits of the club would include a great national and international exposure in form of projects, events awards and chance to meet international fame astronauts like Sunita Williams. The course came with a certification which would definitely be a feather in the cap.
The session ended in a crescendo of many activities as Ms. Manali demonstrated how to make a comet with real ingredients (Dry ice etc.). Differential weighing machines along with planet names were kept . Students and parents checked their comparative weights in different planets and understood the concept of gravity. A competition for parents was held in which they observed distant objects with telescope. Outdoor activity was conducted for students and parents and hydraulic rockets were launched.
