To inspire and ignite the scientific tempers in the students, The Indian Educational School, Kuwait (Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan) conducted a two-day workshop on Aeromodelling (Aircraft designing and Water rocketry) under the aegis of its Science Department on the 13 and 14 June. The workshop was the first of its kind held in the country.
Science-Savvy whiz kids of classes 6 to 10 involved themselves in designing and building gliders and water-propelled rockets under the guidance of Mr. Prateek Gupta, Director of Innovian Technologies, India.
The enthusiasm of students knew no bounds when the youngsters launched their rockets on the open grounds. It was indeed very heartwarming to witness the glow of awe lighting up the faces of the budding scientists when the rockets shot up into the sky and the parachutes unfolded in midair. It was a wonderful experience for the youngsters. At the conclusion of the workshop, all the participants were awarded certificates. Special prizes were given away to the teams that designed the best rockets.
Mr. T.Premkumar, the Principal of IES, lauded the participants for their enthusiasm and creativity. He also appreciated the members of the Science Faculty, IES for their commitment to nurture and nourish love for science among the young minds and asked the department to organize a workshop on "Circuit Designing" for the children during the next term. â€‹
