Expedition to the Solar system


In Association with the prestigious International Astronomical Union-IAU, France, FIITJEE Global School organized an event 'Expedition to the Solar system' a Space-based puzzle game in Vandalur Zoo with the aim of reaching Astronomy to the general public. The juncture was held on the 3rd of October. People of all age groups took part in the event with great excitement and curiosity.
The program was a grand success and the participants really loved it.
The participants were given FIITJEE branded solar goggles on the completion of the puzzle.

We made a 1:4,350,000,000 scale model of a solar system. Every planet was designed to the appropriate scale The volunteers were made to dress up and play their part representing each planet in the allotted displays (A questionnaire was provided to the participants that can be easily understood and answered as they succeed each planet/stall). Puzzles were organised in a way that it started from the sun and as they crack the puzzle they can move forward to the next planet/stall to explore up until the edge of the solar system.









Stargazing


In an attempt to gratify the Astrophiles of Vellore, Skyward Astronomy club of FGS along with VIT Residents Association organized a “Stargazing event” on 26th March at the community ground of their housing society. The persona of the event was proclivity for Amateur astronomy which was evident by parents also vying towards the event.

To celebrate and admire the beauty of the cosmos, we organized a star party at Vellore campus on 25th of September. On that evening, we had free digital theatre shows, quiz contests with giveaways and Stargazing. We had set our Maede 114mm telescope and 8” Dobsonian telescope towards the skies to observe planets and Deep sky objects. Although the weather was cloudy, it did eventually clear up and we were able to see Jupiter and Saturn. It was amazing to see Saturn and its rings, Jupiter and its 4 moons so clearly through the scopes. Along with the planets, we also got a lovely view of the crescent Moon. Follow our page, more stargazing events to come!
