Enriching their practical knowledge and broadening their horizons, students from RCET embarked on an educational industrial visit to the District Science Centre, Tirunelveli and Wind mills in Kumarapuram on 27th February and 2nd, 3rd March, 2023. The visit organised by the Department of Physics, RCET provided a unique opportunity for students to witness first-hand the application of scientific principles and sustainable practices in real-world settings.
Industrial visits provide a bridge between classroom learning and practical application and hence it was meticulously planned to expose students to diverse aspects of science, technology, and environmental sustainability. The District Science Centre offered an immersive learning experience, showcasing interactive exhibits and displays that engaged students in the wonders of science and technology. Students not only got to see how theoretical concepts manifest but also gained insights into emerging technologies and environmental initiatives.
During the visit to the wind mills in Kumarapuram, students had the opportunity to witness renewable energy technologies in action. Wind energy is a rapidly growing field with far-reaching implications for sustainable development. Observing wind turbines in operation not only exposed students to clean energy production but also highlighted the importance of alternative energy sources in mitigating environmental impacts. The students engaged in interactive sessions, informative talks, and hands-on experiences that deepened their understanding of various scientific principles and technological advancements. These experiences were aimed at nurturing a spirit of inquiry, innovation, and awareness of the world around them.
The industrial visit was not only educational but also served as a source of inspiration for students. Witnessing scientific concepts and sustainable practices in action ignited their curiosity and encouraged them to explore potential career paths aligned with their interests and passions. They empower students to think critically, connect with real-world applications, and envision the positive impact they can make as future professionals.
