Night Sky Viewing

Trip to Astroport, Sariska

Astroport,Tehla Rahgiri Sariska, Rajasthan -15 November 2018

As city-dwellers, we take the night sky for granted. The brilliance of the number of stars in the sky and their arrangement into numerous constellations is a sight we willfully forget. However, students of Astronomy Club at Delhi Public School, Mathura Road, were given the opportunity of observing the night sky unobstructed by city lights and buildings at Astroport, Sariska, on Wednesday, November 15, 2018, as part their astronomy club module..

Everyone was given a warm Rajasthani welcome, with music and tilak. Once it got dark, students were prepared for observing the night sky. Beginning with getting acquainted with the telescope, students were shown the Moon and the planets like Mars and Saturn. The craters and patches of the Moon were unerringly clear, while the view of the rings of the Saturn brought disbelief since the planet is nearly 1.2 billion kilometers away from the planet Earth. The sights were heavenly and surreal.

As the evening grew darker, twinkling stars made themselves visible. The craning necks tried hard to gauge the expanse of the sky littered with white dots. With facilitator, Mr. Vikrant, guiding students to identify constellations using a night sky chart altered to the location of Astroport, the students went on to recognize constellations and also located the Andromeda galaxy—the farthest space object visible to the naked eye.

The stay at Astroport came to an end with a satisfying breakfast, a group photograph.The journey back was filled with chatter of what each one saw and remembered. The lunch at Mannat’s at Alwar turned out to be a feast. The bus arrived on time, at 1:30 pm on Thursday, and students were greeted by eagerly waiting parents.

All in all, it was an experience to be never forgotten. With children as little as 10 years old eating and finishing their own food and acting self-reliantly, the trip proved that each of the Dipsite is responsible and independent. The night sky views were insightful and novel. Students enjoyed tremendously, even feeling upset about the trip coming to an end.


Astronomy Club Sky Observation Session

Astronomy club students of classes VI-VIII travelled on 24January’17 with Astronomy Club In Charge, Mr. Sudhakar Kaushik (Physics teacher) and two escort teachers, Ms. Suranjana and Mr. Vimal to Astroport, a dark sky observation site near Sariska National Park, Rajasthan for an evening and overnight sky observation session in collaboration with SPACE .The Astroport facility is only one of its kind, and has been developed to provide a great sky viewing and research experience to the budding astronomers. Use of white torch was strictly prohibited, instead torches with red cellophane sheets were used by students to avoid light pollution and temporary loss of clear vision to deep sky.

Few of the learning outcomes of the observation session are listed below:

  • Sky reading through Sky Map

  • Motion of the Stars

  • Rotation and Revolution concept

  • Planets and their visibility in the Sky

  • Observing constellations.

  • Telescope and its handling

  • Astro photography

Students enjoyed viewing planet Venus, many star clusters, many constellations, star nebulas etc. The educational trip was a learning experience for young astronomers.

Taking education beyond the confines of the classroom educational visit to the Gandhi Smriti

A renowned educational reformer John Dewey opined “Give the pupil something to learn and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results”. Experiential learning is an integral part of learner’s quest for knowledge. It not only facilitates a multi-faceted understanding but stimulates the thinking and creative abilities of the young enthusiasts.

Catering to the ideals of holistic learning thereby, a visit to the Gandhi Smriti, Tees January Marg, New Delhi, was organized for Classes XII L & M(36 students) on 13th April, 2018.

The young enthusiasts spent substantial time gazing at the vivid pictures related to Mahatma Gandhi, his life & discussed at length the freedom struggle led by him. The mystery about Gandhi’s death was unfolded at the martyr’s column through a story.

Keeping the enthusiasm intact the group then proceeded to watch an informative documentary on Gandhi .It certainly made them put their thinking caps on.

The most splendid aspect of the visit were the varied visuals, artifacts, crafts , fiber glass statues at The Gandhi Museum that displayed Gandhi’s contribution to the Indian freedom struggle in an innovative and mesmerizing manner. The visit indeed was a fruitful one.

Visit To AIIMS

Like every year; this year also the Students’ Union of All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi organised CATALYST – An Initiative by Parivartan (The Social Wing of SU, AIIMS) on 27th and 28th April 2017 at JLN Auditorium, AIIMS, New Delhi.

This is an event which aimed at generating interest among class 8th – 12th students in the field of medical science and technology, in which the undergraduates at All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi demonstrate the following:

  • Cadaveric anatomical and pathological specimens

  • Microscopic specimens

  • Interactive audio-visual learning experience

  • Forensic science

  • Life saving techniques

The students of our school got the golden opportunity of taking part in such a prestigious event. 40 students from XI-E(Biology),various sections of Class IX and X along with their teachers, Ms Seema Mishra and Ms Priyanka Bhattacharya attended this event on 28th April,2017.

The very sight of AIIMS campus made the students cheer as they were in the place where their future would eventually nurture. The event included a communicative session with the toppers of AIPMT and JEE examinations who focussed on the strategies to be followed for preparing for such entrance examinations.

Then, students were taken to different Physiology Stations where they could actually see and understand the concepts behind EMG, ECG, SPHYGMOMANOMETER, SNELLENS CHART, ISHIHARA CHART along with the techniques of their diagnosis.

The students were then directed to the Anatomy section where they could see and touch the various anatomical specimens which included the human brain, spleen, heart, lungs, small intestine, kidney, uterus, skeletal system etc.

In the Convergence Block, students got familiar with the pathological specimens including that of lung cancer, peptic ulcer, intestinal polyps, colon cancer, and liver cirrhosis.

The students were also shown various anatomical and pathological slides.

It was a day of the lifetime. It was like stepping into a different world. The teachers too were equally eager to explain these things in a completely new way. Students were no longer reading about things, they were experiencing it first time. When students came out they realised all of the amazing things that Science has to offer and so much more beyond. “Somewhere something is waiting to be known” - All that we need is a lot of hard work and determination.
