Science Fiesta- Catalyst
Catalyst, a Science Festival of YS Schools, is an initiative taken for the practical application of classroom teaching, where students are to prepare and present various models from Science, Social Science, Maths, English, and Art n Craft etc, to showcase and enhance their level of learning. The purpose of such festivals is to build the attitude of the students towards understanding the concepts, to inculcate zeal to probe into the working of almost anything and everything in this world and to build a faith system among them that nothing is impossible, if it is worked for. During these months we observe the students growing, learning, working hard, exploring websites, reading books, understanding concepts, gathering knowledge, preparing presentations and building confidence. In a nutshell, carving a road of success to the future, as the future belongs to those who prepare well for it. Each year more than 1500 Young Scholars exhibit hundreds of models of various fields during CATALYST, in which they prepare the models from the topics/concepts that they are learning in their classrooms, using very ordinary and daily usable articles like CDs, cardboards, plastic bottles etc. An event of such magnitude is certainly beneficial in polishing communication skills and boosting the confidence of the students. The Laser Show at YS has always been a pioneer in taking new initiatives. This time the sought after, Laser Show was held in YS Auditorium. It was the main highlight of the function. It was for the first time that such a show was organized in the area and all the hallmarks of YS were screened in 3D through colorful lasers. Everybody was so excited to watch the show and it was the talk of the town for months.
