“I have been in Trichy for the past five years and the awareness towards science has been steadily increasing in the city,” said project director in-charge at Anna Science Centre – Planetarium, Lenin Tamilkovan. “The main reason for conducting contests for students is to make sure they are interested in the field of science,” he said.
Tamilkovan said the students, based on the theme, came up with interesting ideas for essay writing and elocution contests. “Most of the students came up with different perspectives to explain their understanding of science. For instance, one student spoke about science using real life example -- through home appliance grinder, mixer etc.,” he said.
He also said that the centre has been conducting many programmes apart from the recently concluded one. “Every month, we organise either ‘meet your scientist’ or ‘meet your medical expert programme. Both have yielded good response from the public,” he said.
On March 25, a one-day programme – for women and girl in the morning and for men and boys in the evening – will be held. In the programme, an expert will talk on illnesses corresponding to respective genders.
