Set in a four and half acre campus, the Sri Vani Hanumavana Science Park makes sure learning science is no more boring. “The place itself is an oasis of greenery. All exhibits here pertain to various aspects of study – plants, life size animal models, an open air physics lab, a geological and physical science museum, a rock garden and a biodiversity park make this an educational paradise,” says the principal Sharada Prasad of Sri Vani which is situated off Magadi Road.
Physics Was Never This Easy
If Physics is a matter of worry to your child then just spend a day with your tiny-tot and he will fall in love with the subject like never before. There are live model experiments such as the ‘Persistence of Vision’, ‘Experiments of Resonance’, ‘Conservation of Energy’, ‘The Periodic Table’, ‘The working of Levers and Pulleys’, ‘The Generation of Electricity’ and much more which have been demonstrated very well for easy learning. “Hands-on education is the best tool in academics. The throngs of students who visit here undoubtedly exhibit a better understanding of concepts,” says Sharada.
All children have a special place in their heart for animals – be it small, large, domesticated, wild or even extinct. Besides the models of dinosaurs, there are several fossil specimens that never fail to awe children it’s akin to holding piece of history in your hands. Taking this a step further is the Animal Gallery which has a life-like zoo of model animals. What makes this all the more unique is the inclusion of extinct animals which makes the whole experience fascinating because we see such species only in the movies and most times we just read about them in books.
