VISIT TO THE SCIENCE PARK
Date : 9th Aug 2023
A science park is a theme park based on the concepts of science. One such science park is established in Pimpri, Pune. It was part of educational trip organised by army public school, kirkee.
Aim. Our aim for the visit was students should get inspiration to build curiosity towards science as a subject. Our main goal was students should get ideas and create their own innovative projects which are good enough to be fielded in the real market.
Experience. We set sail from our school at 08:00AM and reached the Science Park around 09:30AM. First we saw the Egyptian screw that was invented by Archimedes. It helps in digging water. Then we entered the building of the science park. There was a guide who explained us all the different sections of the science park. There were 4 sections in all. The science parks also housed a planetarium where various shows on the astronomical front are organised. We saw a pendulum in the park which was labelled as Newton’s Cradle. Then, we went into the automobile section. We saw the working of engines, brakes and gears which are present in our cars and other automobiles. Then there were also types of engines like 1,2,3,4,6,8 cylindrical engines. We also had a look at the steam engine and how it works. We also saw the first steam engine created. We learnt that engines worked through the help of pistons that move up and down to move the vehicle. We also looked at the motion of gears and understood the difference between mechanical and hydraulic brakes, solar and electric powered cars. Cut out models of the cars and different parts of it were also kept for ready reference. Then we went to the climate change section and the energy sections where different projects were kept. It described that how earth has changed over the years. Then we went onto the fun science sections which were basically built to encourage the children to play with science and understand the concepts.
Then we moved on to the shows we saw 2 shows the first one was the 3d show and the planetarium show which was on exoplanets. In the 3d show we were given glasses which would make the effect such that our view of the screen would be in 3d. There were many kinds of animals shown to us in the show. At the last we visited Taramandal show were we saw exoplanets show that how life could be possible outside of earth in other galaxies and solar systems.
