Department of Physics conducted a workshop on “Fabrication of working models”on 25-1-2020 in the college under the star college scheme of DBT, Government of India. The work shop was inaugurated by Prof Satheeshchandra. S, Principal of the college who stressed the importance of such hands on training programme through which students have the real experience. Feeding the roots always results in good fruits and flowers, similarly promoting the fundamental science through such training programmes gives good exposure to students which in turn ends up with fruitful results ,he added.
Prof Alok Ranjan ,Assistant Professor,Department of computer science,Canara Engineering college was the chief guest and resource person for the training programme.He motivated the students to plan up small models and projects which can help the society in the day to day activities. Using Arduino Board , sensors and other components it is possible to fabricate simple models of Traffic Signal, Distance measurement ,security units etc ,he added. Prof S N Kakathkar,HOD of the Physics department presided over the function who was of the opinion that participatory learning is the real education and in such training programmes only it is possible.
In the day long workshop, 42 students are benefitted and they fabricated models like Traffic control signals, temperature measurement units, Humidity measurement units, Distance measurement units and Security units etc.
Ms Rashmi N proposed vote of thanks ,Mr Sai deep welcomed and Miss Sourabha was the master of ceremony.
