In February, Marian English Medium School in Anakkampoil hosted an enriching Arts and Science Exhibition, attracting a vast audience of parents, staff, students, and well-wishers. The event was honored with the presence of Dr. A. Suchith Attiyan from the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Kozhikode as the chief guest. The highlight of the opening ceremony was the spectacular launch of a rocket and the unveiling of a student-crafted drone, initiated by Bindu Johnson, Panchayat President of Tiruvambady. The drone’s flight notably impressed the attendees, setting a tone of awe and admiration.

Sister Swarnalatha, pivotal in organizing this event, underscored the significance of fostering uniqueness and innovation during her welcome speech. She invoked the words of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, encouraging students to leverage their education for the betterment of society. The event coincided with National Science Day, adding to its significance for the school community.

The exhibition featured a diverse array of student projects, including technological innovations and scientific models that covered topics from artificial intelligence and smart cities to sustainable practices and climate change awareness. These displays highlighted the creativity and in-depth knowledge of the young scientists.

Artistic talents were also showcased alongside the scientific exhibits, providing a holistic view of the students’ skills. The ambiance of the exhibition was enhanced by a selection of refreshments, music, and lighting, creating a pleasant environment for all present.

The event closed on a note of gratitude, acknowledging the collective efforts of the school’s staff, students, and parents. It highlighted the true spirit of science lies in independent thought and diligence, not merely in having the best equipment.
