Exploring New Horizons

The teachers of the school visited ‘Nehru Planetarium’ on the 19th of May, 2017.The main objective of the visit was to help the teachers gain more insight on our Universe, keeping in mind the annual theme of our School ‘Out of the World’.

A short video named ‘The ultimate universe’ was played at the planetarium. The video contained information on the planets and their scientific details. The video took us through a grand tour of the universe and gave us unprecedented visual detail of the wonderful cosmos. We learnt many interesting facts like how a star dies and about the erupting volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io. With all the knowledge gathered the teachers then filled in a short reflection sheet on some fun facts they learnt about our universe. Also, as an extension to the visit we received good reading on how to extend this in our curriculum and Learning Together.
