The Department of Physics at MCM DAV College for Women organized “Eureka Fest 2015″ with much zeal on September 24th. And aptly so, since it did justice to both its meanings- one in the context of physics and the other in the discovery of the success that it was!
It started off with an intriguing and inspiring movie called “A Beautiful Mind”, which is a film adaptation of the life of John Nash. His journey of being a brilliant mathematician who’s work in mathematical research was influential in artificial intelligence, computer technology and much more, was described in a beautiful manner.
Then began the essay competition on unique and interesting topics such as “Music to Quantum Physics”, which was a thought provoking display of how different vibrations, noise and sound lead to creation of music, and “Music to Atomic Physics” which focused on relating various elements of physics like frequency, pitch and amplification to music. It was followed by PowerPoint Presentations on laser, plasma and electron beam for cleaner environment.
An overwhelming number of students participated in debates, extempore, collage making and a plethora of cultural performances, including Bhangra, Haryanvi danceandVandana, were displayed.
Professor A.K. Ganguly, Director of INST, Mohali, was the Chief Guest of the occasion. He emphasized on the importance of physics and enlightened the students about how the subject is one of the oldest sciences, that is being studied since the 1600s, and also described it as “Mother of all Sciences”.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience to see that even today, when more and more students are opting for careers in commerce and management, physics doesn’t fail to generate intriguing, innovative and new ideas in young minds.
