Children in Kids Zone

During its three-day halt at Rameswaram, over 14,000 people visited SECAS. It also included students from 90different educational institutions of Rameswaram and adjoining areas.

Apart from the exhibition, student and children also enthusiastically participated in activities of JOS Lab and Kids Zone. In JOS lab, students performed experiments based on Acid-Base Neutralization, pH-test, Surface Tension, Separation of Substances, Capillary Action, Structure of Flower, Structure of Pollen Grains, Seed Identification, Soma Cube, and Peg Board Puzzles etc. In the Kids Zone, children enjoyed making Science based models like ‘Parrot in the Cage’, ‘Whirling Fan’, ‘House Fly in the Balloon’, ‘Sound Propagation’, and ‘Action Reaction’ etc. The game ‘Who am I?’ was also very much appreciated by the participants. However, due to non-availability of a proper shade at the platform, and the scorching heat, SECAS team could not conduct Platform Activity at Rameswaram.

Teams from ENVIS centre, Tamil Nadu, Department of Forest and Environment, Government of Tamil Nadu & NGC, Ramanathapuram, extended their support in coordination of SECAS activities at Rameswaram.

After a successful three-day exhibition at Rameswaram, the team once again packed up and made preparations for their journey to the next station – Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu.
