Stanislites celebrate Moon Landing Day

The science club and social studies club boys of St Stanislaus High School enjoyed a wonderful celebration of Moon Landing Day at the Nehru Science Centre on 19th July 2019.

The visit began with a large format science odyssey film titled Aircraft Carriers: Guardians of the Sea. Watching the film on a huge dome screen projector felt like we were on those large carriers sailing the seas. This was followed by an amazing, up close and personal look at the moon. Yes, you read it right! It was during the day and  with a special visual presentation through a giant animated sphere. The composition, surface, phases and previous lunar landing spots were seen by the students. Later  half the students took a tour of the science centre and participated in a workshop and demonstration of a water rocket. The other half watched a special screening of the movie ' First Man' which told the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the historic Apollo 11 flight.

Arthur C Clarke said,' The moon is the first milestone on the way to the stars.' This Moon Landing Day celebration was definitely an inspiration and a milestone for the future scientists and geographers of St Stanislaus.
