Newman Science Club aims to inculcate scientific attitude, scientific thinking and experimental learning among students. Students get an opportunity to expose their intellectual skills and also to share their scientific and educational experiences with the peer group through the science club. Science club is a better platform for students to identify their scientific skills and fulfil their quest to acquire knowledge through scientific experiments or activities for which they don’t get enough opportunities within their curriculum.
SCIENCE CLUB ACTIVITIES 2021-2022
Birthday Celebration of Heisenberg
The Department of Physics Newman College in association with the science club organised a birthday celebration of the renowned German physicist Werner Heisenberg on 05 December 2021, from 3.15 pm to 4.00 pm, at Mar Pothanamuzhy Hall in the college. The main purpose of the event was to raise awareness about the contributions given by Heisenberg in Physics. The hall was filled with the presence of almost 40 people to witness.
The programme was coordinated by Mr Noble C. Kurian, and well anchored by Anju Thomas, and the pleasant welcome speech was given by Nima M U. The talk, "Heisenberg, the Man of Uncertainty" was given by Aqueena Tresia Cherian on the life of Heisenberg and his contributions. She focussed on the personal journey of Heisenberg, and the audience received ample information regarding the legendary scientist and the man himself. It was lively and delivered, more than just many facts, pointing out little and thought-provoking details. It was followed by a wonderful presentation by Annie Sinta C S, for which she garnered great applause from the gathering. Finally, the meeting came to an end with a vibrant vote of thanks delivered by Kochurani Lalu
