Beaming with joy at BEAMS
Being Enthusiastic About Maths & Science - BEAMS is a proud initiative of MRV, where students are encouraged to experiment, collaborate, research, present and even have fun!
This year's theme for BEAMS was 'Terra Mater 360°' wherein students were to study the Mother Earth from every angle they could imagine. We added Languages and Social Studies to BEAMS this year and thereby created bridges across subjects. Such understanding of Science from historic and geographical perspective will make MRV students global citizens.
BEAMS was conducted for a fortnight and the culmination was held on 7th - 8th July 2016. Students exhibited their scientific findings and understanding to their fellow students, parents, teachers and the honourable guests - Dr R. V. Reddy of Indian Institute of Geomagnetism and Mr Babu Gonde of Bhabha Atomic Research Centre. Dr R. V. Reddy highlighted the need to study Geomagnetism and made us proud of the fact that India is the leading researcher in this area. Mr Babu Gonde held us in wonder when he talked about biomimicry and made a point that much of our scientific advancement is inspired by nature.
Keeping 'Save Earth' as the pith of all the projects, students from Gr I to Gr X were equipped with bagful of ideas that amused, entertained and even educated all. Class decorations, charts, presentations, quizzes, games and movies marked the happy culmination of BEAMS 2016.
