Tuesday, August 28, 2018 - 5am

Students of Harsukh Idara-e-Ilm o Funn visited the Physlab at the Department of Physics, Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering (SBASSE). These six graders, full of excitement and vigour turned into active physicists exploring the realms of mother nature.

Physics faculty, Muhammad Sabieh Anwar and the Physlab staff guided the Harsukh students and encouraged them to participate in a basic exercise of performing an experiment and taught them about scientific phenomena that surround us in various forms. They made an amazing effort to learn about energy, matter, and forms of matter that exist in this universe.

Many students stood in a state of awe while performing an experiment that studies crater formation on the moon. They raised questions on the existence and origins of meteoroids and what happens when they fall towards earth. Another group used a simple pendulum to find the value of gravity and explored the beauty of a wave pendulum.

The students also sang Urdu poetry. They sang verses of “پھر چراغ لالہ سے روشن ہوۓ کوہ ودمن” from the magnificent anthology Baal-e-Jibril of Allama Iqbal and the majestic “اول حمد ثنا؛ الٰہی جو مالک ہر ہر دا” of the great Sufi poet Mian Muhammad Baksh.
