Biology students of class XI and XII visited NISCSIR ( National Institute of Science Communication and Information Resources) for an educational trip prior to the commencement of their CBSE science project. Mrs. Meeta, a senior scientist at the lab, addressed and interacted with the students. She made the discussion interesting by relating research findings to various plants, of which one of them was the “Sanjeevni booti “ which finds mention in Ramayana.
Students also witnessed the process of preparing and preserving a Herbarium. They also got a chance to see some of their rare Herbariums collections from the library. Students were also taken to the small medicinal garden in the NISCAIR campus where the medicinal importance of various plants was explained to them.
Our students also interacted with Mr. R.S Jayasomu, a senior scientist who works in the field of experimental Biology. He encouraged students to analyze their thoughts and relate them with their passion to have a constructive future. He also appreciated the interest of participating students in varied scientific fields. It was an enriching and engaging experience for all our students.
