The Field Trip for students of grade 3 to the “Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium” on 30th August,2018 was indeed a flight through the universe. The magnificent planetarium building captivated the students. The students excitedly ran through the Science Park exploring the various exhibits of Astrophysics, reading about our solar system and the Universe at large; trying to understand, identify the different planets and even learning to recognise constellations. There were a few other exhibits at the Science Park such as Resonant Swings, Whispering Dishes, a giant Kaleidoscope which enlightened the learners.
The students then proceeded to the SKY Theatre. Asthe lights dimmed and the journey through the stars began, the excitement among the students was overwhelming. The skies came alive on their massive dome theatre. The show was extremely informative and provided a good visual experience as well as factual knowledge of astronomy. The day came to a happy and joyous end with lots of cheer and songs by the students on the way back to school.
