"Workshop on Energy and Eco friendly LED Light Bulb Assembling" Held on 20/02/2016
The Post Graduate Department of Physics organized "Workshop on Energy and Eco friendly LED Light Bulb Assembling" in connection with the National Science day with the Sponsorship of Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment and the support of "Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India" on 20th February at Al- Ameen College, Edathala. The main focus of the workshop was to encourage the scientific temperament among students through technological innovations.

INAUGURAL SESSION
The inauguration ceremony started at 9.30 a.m in the Seminar hall of Al-Ameen College. The inaugural session was presided over by Prof. M. B. Sasidharan, Principal-in -charge. Dr. Sreeja. S, Head of the Department of Physics welcomed the gathering. Dr. Suresh Nair, Chief Technology Officer, Nest Group inaugurated the workshop and addressed the students. The talk was successful in elucidating the importance of this technological workshop and in inculcating an interest in new trends taking place in the energy efficient lighting systems. The session ended at 10.00 a.m ,with Prof.Hiba Rahman, Assistant professor of Physics Department proposing vote of Thanks.

SESSION 1

"Talk on the basics of LED"

Resource person: Dr. S. Sankararaman Associate Professor, Nirmala College,Muvattupuzha

This session commenced at 10.30 A.M in the seminar hall.In this session, the resource person made the audience aware of the need of energy conservation and the novel methods adopted for this. He explained the curious audience how LED lights can be designed to emit light in the required colour, suitable for any environment to provide a conducive and pleasant atmosphere. He added that ,LED lights are eco friendly and so, one of the best solutions for the global warming problem, which is a threat for nature. He presented an energy audit report to make the students aware of the need of replacement of the conventional lighting by eco friendly and energy efficient LED Bulb to reduce the energy consumption

SESSION 2

Technical Session -1

Resource person: Dr.S.Sankararaman, Associate Professor,Nirmala College, Muvattupuzha

The second session started in the Physics Laboratory at In the second session, the resource person rendered hands on training in the assembly of LED light bulb assembling. The technical session started with the very basic technique of use of soldering iron, specification of various components used in the assembling etc. This session helped the students to understand the basic procedure of assembling the components like capacitor and resistor for making various kinds of LED lights .Moreover this training gave them the confidence to assemble a Light System on their own. This session was really an opportunity for the students to evaluate the theoretical knowledge they gained in the classroom and train them to the effective power management.

SESSION 3

Technical Session -2

Resource person: Dr.S.Sankararaman, Associate Professor, Nirmala College,Muvattupuzha

In this Technical Session, the students assembled LED bulbs independently. Students were provided with a kit containing a soldering iron and 2 LED light bulbs of 7 Watts and 9 Watts. The bulbs provided were unassembled. Under the supervision of the Resource person and his helpers, the students assembled the bulbs. The technical session series was enthusiastically received by the students and was successful in its stated objective of encouraging the scientific temperament through technological innovations. They were also taught what are the major causes of failures in these bulbs and how can we overcome these failures. The students themselves replaced the burnt capacitors and made the damaged bulb working.

VALEDICTORY FUNCTION

Our resource person declared themselves extremely happy with the responses they elicited from the students .This workshop was a technological treat to the participants .There was almost 75 participants in this workshop. The non teaching staff from our college also actively participated in the workshop and their enthusiasm to learn this technique was really amazing. The participants were given certificates. The students were given to LED bulbs and the soldering iron to their home. This workshop provided the confidence to conduct the training in a large scale to the unorganized women in our panchayath and thus will help us to realize our dream "Science for Society", a reality.
 
SKY WATCH ON 15-16/01/2016
Department Of Physics organized a Sky Watch on 15 th January 2016. The program was carried out under the supervision of DR.N.Shaji, Asso.Professor, Govt.Polytechnique College, Perumbavoor The program started at 6.00 pm with an introduction about the night sky. The visible objects of night sky were explained. Software called Stellarium which is available for free was introduced in front of the students. The software helps us to view the positions of stars and celestial objects which are present in the sky. It also gives us information about the position of stars in the past. After the small introduction given we proceeded on to watching some objects in the night sky using the telescope. During the session we could watch the moon in a very close range in which students saw the craters in moon with great proximity. Some constellations and bright stars were also observed using the telescope at night. At around 11.00 pm the session was wrapped up. At 4.00 am the next session started. Planets such as mercury, Venus and some other bright stars were also sighted early in the morning. Students got a chance to use a telescope and watch the objects for real envisioning minute details. The program helped students to get an idea about how it will be to work in this field dealing with night sky and the objects present in the space. We hope to have created an impact on the students about the depth of the subject that are available for study.
 
WORD TO THE WORLD HELD ON 01/01/2016
Dept. of Physics conducted a programme for the students of Al-Ameen College in the new year year day.
