If the learning process is student-centred, then results are extraordinary. Therefore, Manthan SVK regularly conducts various excursions for the children and in the same series; a full day excursion was organized by Manthan-SVK, Patel Nagar, New Delhi on 14th September 2019 to Nehru Planetarium in which 42 students and 15 volunteers participated.
Manthan-SVK is a social initiative by DJJS (Divya Jyoti Jagrati Sansthan) which is working relentlessly for the benefit of underprivileged children of the society. It aims to provide holistic education which not only focuses on the formal education but also on the overall development of the children.
The students had the opportunity to watch the cosmic theatre show, which created excitement among the children. The theatre show was based on solar systems and astronomical history where students got to learn about the planets of the solar system and their inventions made by various astronomers. There was also an exhibition on various planets, astronomers' clothes, satellites etc. Chandrayaan 2, which was recently launched by India, was also included in the exhibition, which makes students aware of the latest technology and astronomical phenomena. Through this journey, children became aware of every technological progress in science and learned various facts related to science, geography and human development with various tools and techniques. The students also visited the Nehru Museum, which displays the pre-historic life gallery of Jawaharlal Nehru as well as many other freedom fighters and noted leaders.
Such journeys awaken children’s awareness and love for the nation in their hearts.
At the end, refreshments were arranged for the children.
