THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Green Valley International School here organised a science workshop on Saturday in which 95 students from twelve schools participated.

 The workshop, meant for students under the age of 13, was organised by Green Valley under the guidance of three eminent scientist from Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai; Dr S Anand, Dr Senthil Kumar and Dr Manikandan.

 Enthusiasm was overflowing when the students were given a chance to interact with the scientists after the first session. “What is so special about oxygen?” asked Niranjan Verma, of grade 7, Trivandrum International School. “Why can’t we see sea water evaporating ?” asked another student. “How is the bulb made?” came a voice from a corner.

To all of which, with a chuckle, the scientists answered, ‘’It’s all a long process,” trying to explain things in the most simple words to kids yet to learn the lessons of refractive index or theories of volume.

 Various experiments were also practised in groups, like turning pink litmus paper into blue and the like.  The first attempt of the series being a great success, the school plans to conduct more such workshops in the coming years
