Astronomy club of TAFS has been
conducting various activities for the
students to enhance their scientific temper and skills.
Our mission is innovation, passion and total commitment to our vision of
spreading the knowledge of Astronomy and Space Sciences among the students.
Astronomy workshops for the Academic Year 2018-19 have been designed in
association with ASTROPHILE, to provide
an opportunity to the students for an independent out of the box thinking and
enhance the scientific skills of the students.They will be providing science kit, material, modules and content
for the workshops. Resource persons from the organization will assist in
presentation of the workshops and in conducting of hands on
The workshops aim to enhance scientific
temperament, understanding the usage, calibration and manipulation of
scientific instruments with follow up data collection and interpretation. The
key focus is on training young minds in the science of Astronomy and Space
Sciences. The whole experience also aims at engaging young minds in carefully
supervised indoor and outdoor hands on learning activities.
forward to all children participating.
WORKSHOPS FOR CLASS 6TH , 7TH
Students understand the basic principles of
rocketry while making their own rockets. Further they investigate the
foundational concepts of physics by launching their rockets and testing the
rocket launch by varying the parameters defining the rocket trajectory.
Investigating the laws of motion.
Understanding action reaction principle.
Understanding the various important features
of rocket design.
Understanding trajectories at different
measured angle of launch.
Sun our Day time star
Observing the Sun through high technology equipment like the specialized
Cornado Hydrogen-alpha solar telescope enables students to see the various
spectacular features of Sun like the sunspots, solar prominences. They get an
insight into the dynamic solar environment and understand the physics behind
Safe Solar Observation techniques
Sun in different lights- Observing the Sun with
Understanding the image of Sun- observation using
Observing the features of Sun using hydrogen alpha
Understanding the features of Sun like
sunspots and prominences
Observing the features of Sun like sunspots
and prominences using hydrogen alpha solar telescope, sun spotter and solar goggles.
In-depth study of the Solar physics - Plasma,
magnetic field, magnetosphere and auroras
Understanding the dynamics of Solar
The ability to
perceive things through vision is one of the greatest treasures bestowed on
living beings. In this activity, students will explore the various properties
of light and develop an in-depth understanding of ray optics. They will also
investigate practical applications of reflection, refraction and rectilinear
propagation of light by experimenting with various shapes of lenses and mirrors
to identify the focal points and understand image formations.
Types of lenses and mirrors
Reflection, refraction, Total internal
projection of Images
