The objective of this year’s Science week theme ‘Everyone Can Be a Changemaker’ was to inspire young minds to make positive contributions through Science.
Students in consultation with their parents participated in activities that highlighted the importance of their role in creating a better world.
Students picked up diverse topics which concerned them – from experiments requiring thinking critically on how to save energy and water to environmental awareness projects. They worked on innovative models of things like solar powered cars and drip irrigation systems, conducted waste audits, tried out sustainable practices to reduce waste, conserve energy and protect the environment emphasising that even small actions can make a significant difference.
One of the key features was community engagement and the belief that change starts at home and extends to the community. Students actively participated in community service projects creating awareness posters and collecting recyclables. Working on toy, book drives and bake sales, students involved their families and neighbours visiting underprivileged schools, orphanages and old homes to find out how they could help, showcasing that everyone has the power to contribute to positive change in our community and beyond.
To further inspire the students, guest speakers – Recycling for charity, Ayesha Chundrigar foundation, TCF and Kiran foundation, whose innovative actions had made a significant impact were invited to talk about their journey where they started small and made big changes and were now recognised as institutions.
In conclusion, the Science Week theme, “Everyone Can Be a Changemaker,” empowered students to recognize their potential to make a difference using science. Through inspiring talks, fun quizzes, hands-on experiments, community engagement, and active learning, our students discovered the joy and impact of being changemakers.
We hope these experiences will inspire future scientists, technologists, engineers, and environmentalists to continue innovating for a better world.
