‘Evolution Park’ taking shape at Anna Planetarium

Image

An ‘Evolution Park,” tracing the origins of life on Earth, would be established at the Anna Science Centre Planetarium in the city over the next few months.

The thematic park will seek to provide an overview to visitors, especially children, on how life originated from a single cell and its evolution to the present day, said P. Iyamperumal, Executive Director, Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre, which runs the planetarium in the city.

Mr. Iyamperumal told The Hindu that the State government had sanctioned Rs. 50 lakh already and there was some delay in executing the project owing to the model code of conduct in force during the Lok Sabha elections. “The park will be established at the planetarium before February,” he said.

According to sources, the park would be established on two acres on the planetarium premises situated on the Tiruchi-Pudukottai Highway showcasing models to demonstrate the evolution of species. Also referred to as Dinosaur Park, it will be on the lines of the one functioning at the Birla Planetarium in Chennai.

The park, which is to come up behind the Planetarium building, will have about 40 to 50 three-dimensional models and some of them will be working models.

The architectural design of the park is being readied now and the models would be procured from Chennai.

The entire park will be landscaped and would become a popular attraction in the city, the sources said.

Apart from the 75-seater planetarium, the science centre has a 3D Theatre which has gained in popularity. The centre has a science park where a few models have been damaged.

Steps were being taken to repair the models, sources said.

Over 500 saplings, provided by the forest department, have been planted on the planetarium premises under a go-green programme.

Schoolchildren get a peep into astronomy

Image

Schoolchildren were introduced to the field of astronomy and explained in detail about various celestial objects such as planets, stars, and the moon during a workshop at Anna Science Centre-Planetarium in the city on Tuesday.

The one-day workshop on “Transits, eclipses and other celestial events” was jointly organised by Tamil Nadu Science and Technology Centre, Chennai, and Anna Science Centre-Planetarium, Tiruchi.

The event was supported by the National Council for Science and Technology Communication and Department of Science and Technology (DST), New Delhi.

The objective of the event is to popularise astronomy, the mother of all sciences, among children. It aims at educating the children about basic concepts in astronomy, according to I.K. Lenin Tamilkovan, project director, Anna Science Centre-Planetarium.

The workshop is among a series of workshops planned to be conducted in 10 locations across Tamil Nadu, according to S. Soundararajaperumal, Joint Director, Periyar Science and Technology Centre, Chennai. “The first phase comprising five locations started off on Monday in Coimbatore, Tuesday in Tiruchi, and the rest will follow in Mayiladuthurai, Vellore, and Chennai. This will be followed by the second phase for which we are in the process of deciding locations,” he said. The programme comprised lectures on sky observation, planets, and evolution of stars (stellar evolution).

Mr. Soundararajaperumal and Biman Basu, former editor, Science Reporter , delivered the lectures. The interactive lectures were followed by a sun spot observation using a “sun spotter”, a foldable telescope especially designed for the purpose of closely viewing the sun. This activity was followed by a sky observation programme in the evening. The programme was meant for schoolchildren belonging to class 9 and above.

Four students from each school accompanied by one teacher were allowed to participate. One hundred and fifty six participants from more than 25 schools in Tiruchi, Pudukkottai, Vedarangam, and Lalgudi took part in the workshop.

Schoolchildren get practical lessons in science

Schoolchildren are picking up the basics of science at a three-day winter science camp currently under way at the Anna Science Centre-Planetarium in the city.

Eighty five students belonging to classes 7, 8, and 9 from schools in Tiruchi and surrounding areas participated in the camp, according to R. Ahilan, planetarium engineer.

A fee of Rs. 350 a person was charged and meals were provided to the participants.

The first day of the camp (Thursday) featured lectures on basic astronomy, electricity and electronics and a yoga session. Friday (day 2) consisted of lectures on “joy of learning mathematics” and psychology. A visit to the airport was organised during which children learnt technical details about the functioning of an airport and witnessed the landing and take off of aircraft. A sky observation programme was arranged in the evening.

The third and concluding day of the camp will consist of lectures on ‘origami in science’ and astrophysics, followed by the valediction during which students will receive certificates.

Anna Centre-Planetarium organises a summer and a winter camp every year during the holidays; so that the children can improve their knowledge of science, says Lenin Tamilkovan, project director of the centre. The camp will conclude on Saturday.
