SECAS was stationed at New Jalpaiguri only for two days and moreover, due to the ongoing Christmas vacation, there were few school visits. However, a large number of children accompanied by their parents and guardians came to see the exhibition train. Altogether, in two-days, SECAS registered more than 14,500 visitors.

The complementary activities of SECAS in JOS Lab, Kids Zone and at the Platform also received good participation. Kids Zone turned out to be popular segment among smaller children with over 950 kids participating in it in two days. Children made science based models like ‘Balancing Man’, ‘Flying Fish’, ‘Jumping Frog’, ‘Clap in the Air’ etc. Besides, they also enthusiastically participated in discussions on ‘Celestial Bodies’, ‘Pulses and their Importance’ and ‘Hand Washing Technique’.

On the last day of the halt, after the exhibition hours, the SECAS team once again packed up and made preparation for their departure to the next station – New Bongaigaon in Assam.
