"Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have perseverance to realize the great life."
- A.P.J Abdul Kalam
It was just a few days since we celebrated our Color Festival Holi and we heard an explosion, all over the social media. The emerge of newly created virus, that was spreading rapidly. Our Government decided to take the precautionary methods in advance before any distructive effect could take place so to everyone's surprise the total lockdown was imposed exactly a year ago from March 23, 2020. Untill a then the picture in the frame used to look different. Though the changes made then, brought in numerous positive effects but as said there's always darkness underneath the lantern. This turned out to be a very difficult period for everyone as nobody could perform any outdoor activities, this included the schooling and offline studying systems too.
Students had no idea how study during this time. But we the family of N. K. E. Society, Wadala Mumbai could not leave our students by abandoning them. So we performed various research and did brainstorming where we finally came up with few wonderful ideas and information about some incredible events taking place online. For us the platform of Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan was brought into light by one of our sophophilic staff members Mrs. Nitina Shukla. She being an inquisitive and enthusiastic person engaged herself in various educational activities throughout this phase. She first earned her position among the few chosen national resource person in regards with NEP. As she got the information about this opportunity she began pushing and encouraging our students for enrolling to attempt the exam and participate in the competitions conducted by Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan. VVM, is a National program for educating and popularizing science among school students of VI to XI standards. VVM aims to identify and nurture the bright minds among the student community, who are keen on subjects related to science.
Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan is a unique app based online examination for school students to be conducted at national level. The VVM has been conducting these science exams at the national level since last 7 years. Many of our students appeared for this exam from our end. And surprisingly in their very first attempt few of them could crack the first level by their hard work along with our consistent support, and were selected for the second round too.
Recently Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan organized another event in association with Gunniess World Record and MINISTRY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. Later due to pandemic the respectable members of VVM declared the commencement of Guinness world record during the INDIA’s SCIENCE FESTIVAL, more than thousand of students from different corners of India had participated in this attempt.
This Guinness World record was attempted online in three different way
1.Most people applying face mask online simultaneously.
2. Most people washing hands online simultaneously.
3.Most people attending nutrition lesson together online simultaneously .
Our students joined it and got a National level appreciation certificate for being a part of this program organized by Vidyarthi Vigyan Manthan in association with Gunniess World Record and MINISTRY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY. We are proud for being able to use this lockdown period effectively as the results are reflected through efforts and dedication exhibited by our students and teachers.
