Students of Grade III experienced the module ‘Dinosaur Unearthened,’ which explained the devastating scenarios of pre-historic earth. Students of Grades IV and V watched sizing up space module. “I have never seen such amazing things in my life earlier. Watching the volcanic eruption before my eyes at this Space Trek Planetarium was so exciting,” Palak Bothra of Grade IV of the Camford International School said, after watching the 3-D Planetarium Show.
After watching the show Nivruth Adithya of Grade V felt as if he was transported to space and back. “It was a totally new and a different experience for me. For a few moments I felt as if I was in space.” Nivruth Adithya said.
Students of Grade VI were shown the module titled ‘First and the Farthest’. It brought to light the first rocket that was invented by man. It also educated the students about man’s first mission to the moon. This module also celebrates humanity’s great accomplishments in the space race.
