Regional Science City located in Aliganj, Lucknow, is an aesthetically designed complex which has on display several exhibits explaining scientific principles showing latest technologies in science, bio-technology, agriculture and human behaviour.
On 27th August, 2019, Staford School organized a trip to Regional Science City for the students of class VIII. A spirit of excitement and exuberance prevailed throughout the journey.
On reaching their destination, the enthusiastic students headed towards a large under water exploration, which had an enthralling gallery displaying oceanic exhibits. An array of models depicting human biological organs, functioning of the brain and psychological activities left the students in awe. These exhibits were not only informative but also very interesting. A wide range of extra ordinary scientific experiments, which used simple concepts of science such as sound, gravity and energy, left the students enthralled.
The major attraction was Scimax Theatre, which is a state of the art technology and is the first of its kind in the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is a thrilling experience of unparallel nature. While watching large images on the hemispherical dome screen accompanied by the Digital Surround Sound system one experiences complete immersion in the projected scenes. The students witnessed an interesting show about the working and functions of an aircraft carrier, which is a ship outfitted with a flight deck — a runway area for launching and landing airplanes.
While coming back, the students visited a beautifully landscaped park where they spent some time relaxing after a tiresome day.
At Science City, students got fully interactive environment and interesting ways to learn the principles of Science. The trip helped the children to keep them abreast with the changing trends and scientific revolutions.
