Name of the activity :
a.Magnetic Levitaion Pencil
The principle behind both the activities was explained by the resource person Mr. Anil Aher.
The Magnetic Levitation pencil is based on attraction between unlike poles of a magnet and repulsion between like poles of a magnet. Same principal is used for the modern fast trains.
The simple DC motor makes use of the principle that when current passes through a conductor it behaves like a magnet. When it is placed in the magnetic field on another magnet at a certain angle, a force is generated which spins the coil.
Every student made both the pencil and the motor by themselves and enjoyed the activity thoroughly.
10.Eureka – The Science Club
Name of the activity: Wonders of water/ice
Unravelling the mystery of water was the first objective of the club. The session began with questions on freezing point of water and its physical significance. They were asked why salt is spread over road after snowfall to prevent slippery icy road. To answer this question they did 3 experiments.
(i) Lifting ice cubes using a thread: Students were asked to lift as many ice cubes as possible using thread. They sprinkled salt over the thread and few droplets of water. The ice began melting after adding salt, as the freezing point of ice was lowered . The fresh water which was added on the top froze again sticking the thread to the ice. The wonderful phenomena created an ice necklace in the lab.
(ii) Measuring the lowest temperature achieved in the lab by adding salt to ice: Students were given beaker filled with ice and water. Different quantities of salt were added to each beaker and students were asked to note down the change in temperature with time. Every group reported the lowest temperature measured by them. The lowest temperature achieved in the lab was -10° C.
(iii) Making ice-cream using the principle that salt reduces the temperature of ice: Students were given milk-sugar and flavour mixture in a zip lock bag which was sealed and kept inside another big zip lock bag containing ice-salt mixture. They had to shake the entire package for 30 minutes which made the ice cream mixture to freeze giving a smooth frozen treat much to the delight of students.
After conducting all these activities students were asked to make conclusions and they were given questionnaire for further research.
