Sun Projection workshop conducted by Nehru planetarium, Nehru Memorial Museum & library
16 Students of DPSG Palam Vihar attended a Sun Projection workshop conducted by Nehru planetarium, Nehru Memorial Museum & library on December 12th, 2019
It was envisaged that after attending this preparatory workshop, the students would be able to observe the Solar eclipse of December 26th 2019 in the school campus as well as take some measurements related to the Sun, Moon and the eclipse.
The emphasis of the workshop was to facilitate schools to construct a safe method of observing the eclipse, which will also enable the undertaking of some measurements with reasonable accuracies.
The workshop began with the talks related to the Sun and eclipses in general, as well as the eclipse of December 26th, 2019 in particular.
Students studied the construction of the projection box and were guided on how to assemble a simple refractor telescope to be used for Sun projection.
