Science fests help students understand concepts: NIT Prof

Warangal Urban: Participation in science talent fests would help young minds develop conceptual skills and also inculcate scientific temper among them, said Prof KV Jaya Kumar, in charge director of National Institute of Technology (NIT) and Dean Alumni affairs.

“The fests are also useful in developing interpersonal communication skills,” he said, addressing the students at ‘Chekumuki Science Talent Festival-2017 (CSTF-2017)’ organised by the Jana Vignana Vedika (JVV) Warangal District Urban Committee at the NIT auditorium here on Sunday.

Kumar also appreciated JVV for conducting several science experimental workshops for economically-backward students and science talent fests.

Speaking on learning skills, he said, “Mother tongue is important to learn national and international languages besides concepts in science and technology.”

Warangal Rural District Forest Officer (DFO) K Purushotham urged the student to read editorials in newspapers. “They must get their doubts clarified by interacting with eminent personalities such as scientists, professors, research scholars and teachers. “Matter, material and point-to-point analysis play a key role in acquiring the knowledge and help perform well,” he added.

Chekumuki Telugu magazine editor Prof A Ramachandraiah said students and teachers follow scientific approach in every aspect of their lives. “In March 1993, Chekumuki magazine was established by the social and science intellectuals. Chekumukhi talent fest is purely science quiz,” he said.

JVV Warangal Urban district president D Prabhakara Chary said their organisation had been conducting “Chekumuki Science Talent Festival” at school, mandal, district and State levels every year.

“The main objective of the festival is to promote quest for science among children and to sharpen their creative scientific skills by performing conceptual experiments, visual and creative videos by using latest multimedia computer technology,” he explained.
