On 12th September 2017, 38 students of grade VI, along with their Escort Teachers – Mrs. Mitali Gupta and Ms. Kakoli Mondal, went for an Educational Excursion to the Meteorological Observatory (Pune).
During this half a day trip, children gathered knowledge about the working of a Meteorological Observatory and its observations. They learnt about the tools used to measure the various natural phenomena such as:
- Atmospheric Pressure measured by the Barometer
- Air and Soil Temperature measured by the Thermometer
- O.P.E.N. Tank to measure Water Level
- Wind Pressure by Anemometer or Wind Mill
- Rainfall by Rain Gauge?
- Humidity by Psychrometer
The students had a great time during the entire trip and returned enriched with an enhanced understanding of the functioning of the Meteorological Observatory.
