Science Students Create Gizmos in Lab

Confidence was at its fullest and excitement was sky high when students of class 12 (Science) gave a final touch to their creations in physics laboratory. While the pair of Kruti Patel and Shivani Patel worked out a well-functioning Telescope, Nipa Patel and Riya Patel successfully created ‘A.C. to D.C. Converter’. While Aeni Prajapati prepared and shaped a Voltage Stabilizer, three of the students- Bhoomi Patel, Disha Patel and Hetashree Patel  put their theoretical knowledge in to practice as they designed and built out ‘Logic gates’.  Yet other two students - Tanvi Jariwala and Angelina Fernandis came out with their experiment-based report on ‘Effect of Concentraion of Electrolyte on Conduction’.
At SVM, care is taken that the students have formed worthy habit of practicing what they are taught. Independent creation of working gizmos like Telescope, Volatage Stabilizer and Rectifier by the students illustrates the strong and most desirable bond of theory and practice.

Tour to Hyderabad (Class VIII to XII)

Hyderabad, "south to the north of India and north of southern India", is often referred to as the "Gateway to the South". A range of experiences were awaiting for the students as the school arranged for tour to Hyderabad for the students of Class VIII to XII. The six-day tour took the students to hilarious heights with all sorts of fun and frolic. Students enjoyed everything- the  22 hours train journey, visiting worth seeing places, stay at seven star hotel and different dishes of food. At Ramoji Film Studio, they were more than thrilled finding themselves very close to film-making technology. They were storming with the snow at Snow Park but assumed seriousness of an archeologist when observing fort of Gol Kanda.
The students shared their own reflections on the city on their return to the school. Hyderabad is the city where food becomes a landmark. Students had a good lesson from the tour to Hyderabad: to retain what is good and move on with life; that is something everybody need to learn.
