Inculcating Creativity and Critical Thinking in Students With the goal of making science an experiential and fun journey, Shrimad Rajchandra Gurukul hosted the annual Shala Vikas Sankul (SVS) – a taluka-level Science and Mathematics exhibition. Organised by the Gujarat Council of Educational Research and Training, and the District Education Office, the event saw participation of nearly 1,400 students from across 48 secondary and higher secondary schools of Dharampur taluka. The exhibition theme was ‘Technology and Toys’ for which students submitted creative projects on topics such as information and communication technology and environmental conservation. Selected submissions were awarded by the panel of judges, while all participating students received a certificate. Also, an in-house science fair, ‘Abhivyakti’, was organised for students and alumni of Shrimad Rajchandra Vidyapeeth, providing them a platform to showcase their scientific knowledge and improve their communication skills. Over 250 students delivered presentations on interesting innovations in various fields of science and were judged by external faculty. Top winners were presented with trophies, other best presentations across categories were awarded prizes, while all participants received certificates for their efforts. Through such initiatives, Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care continues to promote holistic and hands-on learning.
