It is rightly said “Today’s Science is tomorrow’s technology”. The Science department, at Dr. Pillai Global Academy, New Panvel, worked on these lines to put up an exhibition themed “Technology in Science”, on Tuesday, the 15th August, 2017.
The exhibits spanned all the three branches of Science- i.e, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Students from grades 6 to 12, portrayed various advancements in Medicine, ranging from Prosthetics to robotic surgery and use of Nanotechnology in medicine. There was a separate section on advancements in Neurology and Cardiology. Other exhibits included the importance of airbags in cars and a working model on rain water harvesting.
The simulation on “Natural Selection”, handled by grade 7 students- Akshara Nair and Riya Gairola, earned everybody’s commendation. Human anatomy was brought alive, with the help of augmented reality. These projects were the centre of attraction and earned great accolades.
This exhibition, not only honed the communication skills of students, but also polished their skills in technology and was a step forward towards their all round development.
