Creativity galore

Sridivya Mukpalkar

Months of planning, discussions and preparation by middle school students of NASR Girls School paid off at their annual ‘Science, Math, and Art exhibition’. While the focus of the science exhibition was renewable energy, ‘ancient methods of calculating time’ was the theme for the math exhibition. The art displays added much colour and energy to the serious atmosphere of math and science exhibitions. It was encouraging to see students use eco-friendly material for all their craft work.

The exhibitions were organized inside NASR Girls School’s large campus in the heart of Hyderabad. Rows of colourful displays were put in two large halls filled with buzzing students. The stage setup for the math exhibition was apt for the theme displayed.

Working models of solar panels and biodegradable gas were used by students to explain about alternative sources of energy. Thermocol replicas of famous sundials in India were the best displays of the day.

Parents who visited the exhibitions were delighted to see their children use their creativity and attempt at public engagement and presentation. Students from different schools also visited the exhibition.
