Saturday, 15th of February 2014 was a memorable day for the children and teachers of Anjana Vidya Kendra School. It was indeed an ideal day and setting to converge and celebrate science in a rural school, hidden between the villages at the far end of dusty roads away from hustle and bustle of the city. The Science festival conducted as part of CSIR-NAL school adoption program was designed to create excitement and get rural students interested in learning science.
About 180 students of Anjana Vidya Kendra School (from 3rd grade to 10th grade) showed their skills in demonstrating more than 60 science experiments and activities. More than 200 students and teachers from other nearby schools in Mugalur and Kalkunte region relished the excitement by seeing and talking science the entire day. The day's program, apart from presentations by the young scientists, also included a few professional presentations and flight demonstration of Micro Air Vehicle from the real research scientists of the sponsoring team, the CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratories.

They engaged children by showing a video on History of Science (made exclusively for the audience) and gave away T-shirts as gifts to students.
The primary children showed off their collection of insects, coins, feathers, roots and leaves and demonstrated activities to show absorption, air pressure and how important is water for the growth of plants and animals. The middle school children kept the audience busy by demonstrating activities on strength of magnets, how sound travels in solids, persistence of vision, static electricity and dissolving power of liquids and a method of separating mixtures. High School students demonstrated fun filled experiments scaring the visitors with their liquid rockets and vanishing ink and several more serious experiments involving light, heat, sound, forces & energy, liquids & gases, chemical reactions and more.
