"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." – Booker T. Washington
With the aim to engage with the community and all its stake holders Maharaja Agarsain Public School celebrated ATL community day on 22.4.19 with great zeal and enthusiasm. The day began with auspicious lamp glowing, yes the traditional lamp lighting ceremony got a technological twist with Mr Vimal Prakash Aggarwal Vice President/ Prabhari- MAPS, School Principal Mrs Punam Gupta, School mentor of change Mr Nikhil Srivastava and guest parent Mr Amit Jain lighting the lamp and starting the meet open message with voice command; all automated by students themselves. The students from nearby non- ATL schools i.e. SKV, Bharat Nagar and SKV, JJ colony, Wazirpur were a part of the ceremony as well. All the students were addressed by the esteemed dignitaries who encouraged them to unleash the immense potential within them and make India a technological hub in the coming years. This was followed by a plethora of activities where students displayed various projects developed by them over the past year. Amongst the main attraction were a mini drone assembled and programmed by students, a virtual tour of school, video games developed by students, a smart dustbin, a smart blind stick, holo lens, RADAR that could detect obstacles on its path, obstacle avoider and line follower robots and a football match between robotic machines. All these excellent projects got the spectators spell bound. The other important part of the event was hands on activities including LED lighting using bread board, balloon tower building activity and spontaneous activities where students were required to use their critical thinking skills to perform them. After spending ample time on these a workshop on ROBOTICS was conducted by resource person Mr Atul Mishra, innovation engineer Stem-Robo, the session further inducted students into the amazing world of Robots and technology, the session was not only informative but highly engaging as well. After this School mentor of change Mr Nikhil Srivastava motivated the students with his golden words. He encouraged them to use technology to their benefits but at the same time ensuring that they don't lose control and become slaves of technology themselves. His words rang a bell with the students who were encouraged to do innovations in future. The guest student participants were also served refreshments and the winners of balloon tower received prizes as well. The day culminated with the vote of thanks by ATL In-Charge. Everyone enjoyed the innovations by students and appreciated their novel ideas and knowledge. The over whelming response motivated students to arrange a similar event exclusively for parents on the upcoming Parent's Teacher's meeting on 27.04.2019.
