Addressing the scholars, Prof. GRC Reddy, Vice-Chancellor, Sharda University stated “India had an incredible record in technological know-how and with all our efforts we will take a giant soar within the close to future. The students need to focus on ‘How and Why’ of factors in preference to simply focusing on rote mastering. In twenty-first century, the pecking order of nations could not be determined with the aid of their military or financial energy, however by their know-how electricity.”
DST Mentor, Prof. SBS Mishra said, “RC Feynman once wrote a scientific paper titled “There are masses of room at the bottom” which led to scientists growing smaller and smaller gadgets to store data leading up to today’s nanotechnology revolution”. Next changed into a communicate on rising developments in laptop technological know-how consisting of synthetic intelligence, information science, and virtual fact through Dr. B.B. Sagar, CS, BIT Noida.
Bioinformatics, Mathematics was in consciousness on the second day and protected lectures from mentors consisting of Dr. Latha Narayanan, Shri Venkateshwara College, DU who shared her insights on numerous regions inside biology and informatics and additionally pointed out exciting streams, which include protein modeling and genomics, laptop aided drug layout among others. Dr. M.M. Mishra, Asst. Prof, Mathematics, Hansraj College briefed the students about the fundamental shape of arithmetic.
On the 0.33 day, Prof. Mohammed Fahim, Vallabhbhai Patel Chest Institute, an expert in Cardio-Pulmonary body structure advised students on options and techniques of choosing a career in technological know-how. It becomes accompanied with the aid of a lecture on “Research Advances in Plant Biotechnology and Crop Improvement” by Dr. Manoj K. Sharma, Asst. Prof, JNU.
On the 4th day, Dr. R.K. Kotnala NPL, New Delhi, mentioned approximately the emerging area of Hydro-Electrical Cells (HECs) and gave a stay demonstration of cells made in his lab while the one’s cells lit up LED lighting by way of simply getting into contact with water. Prof. RM Mehra from Sharda university knowledgeable the students on semiconductor physics and sun cells.
On the very last day, Prof. HS Gaur Sharda University talked about careers in agricultural technology. DST mentor Prof. P.K. Joshi, School of Environmental Sciences, JNU addressed the scholars on “Geo-informatics for environmental management” the use of far-flung sensing information from satellites and Prof. Anand Mohan, Dayalbagh Educational Institute pointed out Geology, even as emphasizing the truth that how vital it’s far to defend the Earth’s prone soil cowl upon which our agriculture is based.
At the valedictory feature, Prof. HS Gaur (Dean SBSR, Sharda University) welcomed the Chief Guest Prof. Ravinder Kumar (retired IGNOU). He mentioned the significance of young college students knowing the process wherein technology progresses. Quoting Thomas Kun he said “technological know-how doesn’t progress linearly however in episodes that mark discontinuous jumps from one paradigm to every other. Even social sciences could qualify to be known as sciences”. Prof. RM Mehra, Prof. HS Gaur, and Prof. Ravinder Kumar distributed awards for an essay writing competition.
One of the highlights of the science camp was the afternoon laboratory classes, where college students enthusiastically participated in various fingers-on clinical activities in Sharda University laboratories of Physics, Chemistry, Biotechnology, Mathematics & Environmental Science.
