A visit to National Science Centre@ Delhi

Apart from the visits to historical places, students have also visited the National science Centre @ New Delhi.
Constructed in 8 floors, this museum houses working science exhibition as well as exhibits on the history of architecture. It has various sections for all age groups such as Heritage & Dinosaur gallery, Human Biology gallery, Fun Science Library etc. There are also a number of hands-on displays explaining the laws of physics.
The gallery then unfolds with a plethora of exhibits that cover various issues related to water. How much of it is available on our planet and what percentage of it is potable and in what form is water available on the Earth are some of the issues that are dealt with in the exhibition. The Gallery has generated huge interest among the students who eagerly checked the water content in their body and various organs like brain, liver, and muscles tec.
The gallery on the first floor portrays the march of Information Revolution - from cave paintings to the Internet. The story of evolution of Communication Technology over past 6000 years in India
The next Gallery is Fun Science. This gallery is most liked by the younger visitors because this is full of hands-on exhibits explaining the fundamentals of science. Science has always been a subject which has been dealt with a lot of seriousness in schools. 
It is a must visit and was enjoyed by each one of us.

It was a five day trip to Delhi- Agra-Jaipur.
On day two the Einstein group visited the Taj one of the wonders of the world. They were so amazed by the beauty and elegance of the great monument that they could not stop asking questions about it and also clicked away pictures with glory.
The beauty of the Taj was so mesmerizing that they did not think of anything else and paid rapt attention to the words of the tour guide who was more than happy to explain about the historical facts and details.
They also got an idea about the impact of climate and pollution on the Taj and shared their ideas with one another as to how to keep it safe for generations to come. It was indeed a Wah Taj experience!

Visit to Jantar Mantar @ Jaipur

As a part of the tour the students of Einstein campus visited the Jantar Mantar at Jaipur. It is a marvel created by Raja Jai Singh the ruler of Jaipur which stands testimony to the human intelligence and craftsman ship at an age when there was no technology and sophisticated gadgets.
In the early 18th century, Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur constructed five Jantar Mantars in total, in Delhi, Jaipur, Ujjain, Mathura and Varanasi; they were completed between 1724 and 1735.
The Jantars have interesting names like, Samrat Yantra, Jai Prakash, Ram Yantra and Niyati Chakra; each of which are used to for various astronomical calculations. The primary purpose of the observatory was to compile astronomical tables, and to predict the times and movements of the sun, moon and planets.
The observatory consists of fourteen major geometric devices for measuring time, predicting eclipses, tracking stars' location as the earth orbits around the sun. Each is a fixed and 'focused' tool. The Samrat Yantra, the largest instrument, is 90 feet (27 m) high, its shadow carefully plotted to tell the time of day. Its face is angled at 27 degrees, the latitude of Jaipur. The Hindu chhatri (small cupola) on top is used as a platform for announcing eclipses and the arrival of monsoons.
Built from local stone and marble, each instrument carries an astronomical scale, generally marked on the marble inner lining. Bronze tablets, all extraordinarily accurate, were also employed. Thoroughly restored in 1901, the Jantar Mantar was declared a national monument in 1948.
An excursion through Jai Singh's Jantar is a unique experience of walking through solid geometry and encountering a collective astronomical system designed to probe the heavens.
A visit to Jantar Mantar has truly evoked a thought process and curiosity among the children about constellations, sun signs and predictions of the future.

Kingdom of Dreams- A fascinating destination!

Culture Gully is the arts, crafts and Food Boulevard at the Kingdom of Dreams. It is fully Ac Boulevard with theme restaurants and live kitchens from 14 states of India, represented with their representative architecture and decor.
Each state pavilion's architecture has something unique. For example, the entrance to Mumbai is through a local train compartment that resembles the Victoria Terminus while the Goa stall has a beach shack serving Goan treats.
Other than regional delicacies, the state pavilions hosts street performances, artisans and handicraft stores.
