Jalandhar, July 1, 2019: Lovely Professional University (LPU) is organizing free of cost one-month long ‘Summer Science Camp for Rural School Students’ at its campus. Under this program, more than 400 students of 9th to 12th standard from 30 villages of the state have come to LPU. The University is also providing free refreshment to the young students. This training, grooming, developing and knowledge enhancing free summer camp will run up to June 30, 2019. The camp aims to teach basic concepts of science to create awareness about recent global advances in science and technology related areas.
Various post graduate volunteer students and faculty members from the School of Chemical Engineering and Physical Sciences of the University are leading students through innovative instructive tools. The participating students will also receive certificates after successful completion of the camp-course.
Students from various government and private schools are participating. Some of the students from Swami Sant Dass Public School (Phagwara) share: “We are not only getting well-versed in our subjects but also being groomed by highly qualified professors and senior students of LPU. In the most systematic way, the faculty explain us all minute details about the topics covered. We all are thankful to LPU for making us best utilize our summer holidays.”
Prof Dr. Ramesh Thakur, Head, School of Chemical Engineering & Physical Sciences and School of Research Degree Programmes, informed that LPU teachers are touching the important topics from diverse science-fields. The physics instructors are teaching students about how electronics, magnetism, sound, light are having effective roles in daily life; biology teachers about function of different body organs; Chemistry trainers showing importance of chemical reactions practically; and, so on.
The rural students are grasping well about these and related topics of common interest. LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal encouraged hard working faculty members and volunteer students to continue such CSR activities in future as well.
