Saarthak is all about taking education beyond academic curriculum: Dr Ragni Pratap

Quodsi everti ancillae vim qui lorem persius petentium Saarthak is all about taking education beyond academic curriculum: Dr Ragni Pratap

Meerut, Nov 21 (ENA)  The recently concluded inter-collegiate exhibition - Saarthak 2015 was all about taking education beyond the confines of academic curriculum, rote learning and the examination system to a platform where students’ creativity and curiosity can be nurtured, according to Chief Coordinator of the exhibition, Dr Ragni Pratap.

The event that took place from November 7-8 here met all expectations as it brought to the event not only students and teachers but also visitors and parents who were eager to see their children’s accomplishments.

Spread across the sprawling campus of the Kanohar Lal Postgraduate Girls College were scores of colourful stalls that attractively displayed lessons that students learned during their academic year.

“The students themselves picked topics that they found either boring or difficult and portrayed their learning through charts, games, colourful displays or in the form of a quiz,” Pratap who is also the Head of Music Department explained.

Notably, the Psychology section during the exhibition focussed on gender equality.  Considering that the institutions promoted by the Kanohar Lal Trust Society cater mainly to girls from the weaker sections of the society, the topic drew considerable attention.

“Parents and other women folk are not very aware of child rights and gender issues.  So they were keen to see what the students had to say; what kind of behaviour they had to watch out for in their girls, etc.” said Trust Coordinator, Dr. Neha Sharma.

The Physics Department needs special mention for their impressive models of hydraulic crane, brake and lift; automatic on/off of model of a railway crossing; and the waste to energy process.

As for the home science department, it demonstrated how work can be simplified by minimising hand and body motions in the house.

There was also a stall pointing out to healthy habits.  “Let education and awareness defeat diseases,” the sign read.

In addition, there were separate stalls for Sociology, Performing Arts, Biology, Sports, History, Hindi, Commerce, General Knowledge, Literature, Political Science and so on.

As many as 700 individuals had registered at the two day event.  In the pipeline is another similar event called Gyanuday, scheduled to be held on December-22.  (ENA Bureau)
