    Report of visit to innovative projects organized by IRIS

    On 4th of December 2018, the students of TAFS, got the opportunity to visit an exhibition showcasing the topmost innovative projects from all over India. The event was organized by Initiative for research and Innovation in Science (IRIS),  which is a public – private partnership program heralded by Department of Science and Technology(DST), Indo US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and Intel.

    The students interacted with the IRIS finalists who were showcasing their innovative projects. They showed keen interest in new ideas portrayed through projects. They became aware of the application of simple ideas in making projects that are cost effective, environment friendly and user friendly. It is a great initiative in inculcating scientific attitude amongst the students and developing keen interest towards research in science and technology.

    It was truly an exciting and enriching experience for our students to interact with the IRIS finalist students.

      The Astronomy club of TAFS organized second workshop of the three workshop series for classes VI to VIII on 26 & 27 NOVEMBER,2018. The topic of this workshop was Optical system where students worked together in groups and learnt about the type of lenses and mirrors, their properties, behaviour of light as it passes through the lenses and the mirror , and their use in day to day life. The students also learnt how to focus objects using lights. They were taught about the bending of light and change in behaviour of light as it changes medium. The students were also demonstrated how the light behaves at different angles and what happen when the angle of incidence of light is beyond the “Critical Angle” for the material. Through this students got to know  about how Total Internal Reflection is helpful and how often we get to see this in our day to day life  and how the same principle is used for communication on earth using radio signals and fibre optic cables. The students during the course of session used laser lights and torch lights to reiterate the principles of optics themselves. 

        INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITY

        03 DECEMBER 2018

        ‘We all are differently abled and uniquely talented’


        International Day of Persons with Disability was celebrated in The Air Force School, Junior Wing, on 03 Dec 2018, with great enthusiasm.  This was an initiative to sensitize students about a world of people with special needs. Teachers showed various videos on the theme and discussions were also held in the classrooms. Students were not just passive audience of this celebration; instead they appreciated the effort put in by the differently abled people and recognised the virtues & abilities possessed by their class mates who are differently abled.

        Our students were so enthusiastic about celebrating this day that they created posters with encouraging quotes on disability and displayed their work in their classrooms. They also took a pledge to treat all persons equally irrespective of their abilities.

        It was a profound experience for all students who attempted to understand the relevance of individual abilities and appreciate it.
