Kindly note the following points about the field trip to Science City, Ahmedabad.Ã‚Â
Visit to Science city, Ahmedabad will enhance studentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s physics Ã‚Â knowledge. This visit is intended to explore the applications of various concepts of physics like energy, work & power. It is explicitly planned for students to learn and have fun. They will be watching a 3D movie Ã¢â‚¬Å“Walking on the moonÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Alignment of CoS syllabus with different attractions of Science city is as follow.
|No.||Unit name||Learning outcomes to be achieved||Science city attractions|
|1.||Energy||Give and identify examples of energy in different forms, including kinetic, gravitational, chemical, strain, nuclear, thermal (heat), electrical, light and sound.||Energy Park|
|2.||Give and identify examples of the conversion of energy from one form to another, and of its transfer from one place to another.|
|3.||Describe how electricity or other useful
forms of energy may be obtained from:
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢Chemical energy stored in fuel
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Water, including the energy stored in waves, in tides, and in water behind
