To popularize the benefits of scientific knowledge, 28th February is celebrated all over India as National Science Day – NSD to mark the discovery of Nobel Prize winning Raman Effect by the great Indian Physicist Sir C. V. Raman in 1928 on same day.

Raman Effect is a phenomenon in spectroscopy discovered by the eminent physicist while working in the laboratory of the Indian Association for the Cultivation of science (IACS), Kolkata. After two years of this discovery, Sir C. V. Raman brought the first Nobel Award for India in 1930. Hence the NSD is a great day for Indian Science and scientific community.

Celebration of NSD in schools helps inculcate scientific temper among children. It goes without saying that the daily application of science like the use of clean drinking water, knowledge to eradicate contagious disease, the know-how of various agricultural practices to increase crop production, the usefulness of Chemistry for the benefit of humanity, etc., ought to be disseminated to the future generation.

JMA celebrated NSD with a talk by Principal Mrs Booma Natarajan and Science Teacher Mrs Anuradha Soni. The Principal urged the students and teachers to spread the message of importance of science and its application among the people and ensure that blind faith and beliefs in various sections of Indian Society is completely eliminated.

For the four houses of the school namely Jupiter, Mercury, Neptune and Venus, quiz competitions were held in which students enthusiastically participated and the Neptune house emerged as winners. The quiz was conducted by Mrs Anuradha Soni, Mrs Sangeeta Jangir and Miss Poonam Saini.

The students of Class V, VI and VII also demonstrated various science models made by them. The science exhibition was inaugurated by Shri Anand Padia Secretary of the School.
