Today’s educational system is such that only the theory knowledge from the text books is not sufficient for various competitive exams like, KVPY, OLYMPIADS, NTS, NSTSE, etc. Because these exams have the questions based on practical knowledge also.
Here, at MEEEGS, we provide the opportunity to the students of getting such practical knowledge by conducting the practical workshop based on their curriculum. One such workshop was conducted on 31-10-14 & 1-11-14 at MEEEGS on Physics & Electronics for the students of 10th standard.
The workshop was very nicely conducted by Dolphin Labs, renowned research centre, Pune of which the directors are Shri. Chittaranjan Mahajan sir & Mrs. Rajashri C. Mahajan madam. The workshop was assisted by Mrs. Renuka Kalaj. Mahajan sir is an expert faculty in the field of electronics. He did his post graduation from Pune University & currently doing his Ph.D. from the same university. He has seven patents in his name. Mrs. Mahajan is also a post graduate from C.O.E.P. & has two patents in her name.
These experts came to MEEEGS, and they made the students in a very nice manner to handle the different electrical gadgets, instruments, through 16 experiments which were performed by the students of MEEEGS. The students of the workshop were given a kit of different electrical instruments.
By this workshop students came to know how to apply their theory knowledge to perform experiments. Students showed their creativity & innovative ideas by constructing new electronic circuits. The experts not only explained all the basics required for the experiments but also make students to do the practicals on their own by personnel attention. At the end of the workshop, we were very happy to see the satisfactory faces of the young scientists.
