REGIONAL SCIENCE CENTRE
|Science demonstration lecture||Science
Demonstration Lectures are arranged to impress upon the students and teachers that
lectures in classrooms can be made more exciting and enjoyable using exciting experiments
with the aid of low cost kits and demonstration equipment.
This aspect of teaching acts as a supplement to formal science education in
of the Science
Demonstration Lecture Units:
|Science film show||Science film show programme is a regular activity in all science centres and at mobile science exhibition sites. Films on important topics of science & technology are screened.|
Science Centre & Planetarium, Calicut launched 11th Planetarium Show titled
Celestial Wonders. The programme unravels the mysteries behind the
celestial events like solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, transit of planet etc. explaining
nature of stellar constellation and solar system. Shri Binoy Viswam, Honble Minister
for Forest & Housing, Govt.of Kerala launched the new programme on 14th
August 2006. To inculcate the importance of astronomy in young minds the Centre has
developed a planetarium show The Wonderful Astronomy exclusively for Lower and
Upper Primary students. The programme deals
with fundamentals in astronomy and aims to familiarize the basic concepts in astronomy.
Planetarium shows: Daily 12.00 noon,2.00 pm,4.00 pm,6.00 pm
|3-D science show||An
exciting experience of watching 3-Dimentional short movie through the 3-D science show.
The visitors to the 3D Science Show will experience an out of the world immersive
experience in which the near realistic visuals will appear to come out from the static
screen right in front of their eyes. Humans perceive 3 dimensional (3D) view of the
surrounding using two eyes. Both our eyes see a slightly offset view of the scene. Our
brain combines the two slightly different views in a complex way that creates a unique
perception of depth. Thats why we need two eyes. The working of 3D show is really
very simple. It works the same way as our eyes. A distance of about 2.5 inches separates
our eyes, and because of this distance we see objects from two different points of view.
While 2.5 inches seems quite small, it's good enough to accurately gauge distances as far
away as 25 feet. The images from these two different viewpoints are sent to the brain and
this difference, which is termed as parallax, is interpreted as depth.The 3D Science shows
system reveals a two-eye view of the world from the screen. In this 3D system,
depth-of-field is simulated using Polaroid glasses, which allow light to pass selectively
based on a phenomena of physics known as Polarization.
3-D shows: Daily 11.00 am, 1.00 pm, 3.00 pm & 5.00 pm
