The unusual circumstances around us could not dampen the spirit of our pupils at Garden High School IISER Kolkata. From their confinement at home they have put together a brief programme to celebrate the 159 th birth anniversary of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore. Hope you enjoy it.
To welcome the festive season in autumn the pupils of Garden High School-IISER Kolkata Campus presented a cultural programme on 27 September 2019. It started with a song ‘I want to teach the world to sing’, followed by drama ‘Jungle Book’. The theme of the play was unity and freedom as found in nature. Then there was a recitation of the Bengali poem ‘Sarat’ written by Promod Basu. The programme ended with two dance performances- ‘Gouri elo dekhe ja lo’ and ‘Subharambh’. The enthusiastic pupils performed exceptionally well and were applauded by the enterprising audience.
Ms Ann Devereux, Manager of systems Engineering, Integration and Test of Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA delivered a lecture titled ‘Journey to the Moon and Mars’ at the IISER Kolkata Auditorium on 25 September 2019. It was a very enlightening presentation as she explained technical aspects involved in space journeys, with relevant stories and slide shows. One was reminded of a famous Einstein quote- ‘If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t know it well enough’. Ms Devereux actually made ‘Rocket Science’ look easy and enjoyable, as her presentation was lively, lucid and was peppered with humour.
Pupils of two senior classes attended the lecture, which was a very enriching experience for them. It acquainted them with some intricate, yet interesting facts about journey into space.
