National Science Day
Updated: Mar 2
“Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles—he can only discover them.”
The Rashtriya Vigyan Diwas day is observed every year to commemorate the discovery of the ‘Raman Effect’ by Sir C.V. Raman on 28 February 1928. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930 for the same. Science Week is also observed along with the National Science Day. The National Council for Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC) had asked the Government of India to designate 28 February as National Science Day in 1986.
India has contributed to the scientific world from the ancient period itself. Indian scientists are making it possible to be powerful with the technological upgradations in all related fields. In the world of today, even school going kids are so sharp and their mind work in so many contours that they are making new inventions daily. Almost once or twice monthly, we observe that the children of different cities all over the world are making new contributions in the field of science.
National Science Day is widely celebrated all over the country- in all educational and research institutions. The celebration includes public speeches, radio, TV, science movies, science exhibitions based on themes and concepts, watching the night sky, live projects, research demonstrations, debates, quiz competitions, lectures, science model exhibitions, and many more activities.
In our school, Shree H. J. Gajera English Medium School, Primary Section we celebrated this day with pomp and glory. More than a hundred working models, and 150 charts were displayed in the exhibition conducted, to glorify this day. The participants ranged from Standard 3rd to 7th.
