As part of the AKAM celebrations, IPR has been conducting a series of scientific outreach activities in rural schools of different districts of Gujarat. The fourth such event was conducted during 11-13 July, 2022 at the Seth Khemji Ramdas Kanya Vidyalaya, Mandvi. This is a Gujarati medium girls' school with over 600 students studying in classes 1-12.

The 3-day event consisted of popular talks on plasma and its applications and exhibition of over 15 working models. Over  400 students and teachers from this school as well as nearby schools and general public visited the exhibition. Principals of schools in Mandvi and Bhuj also visited the exhibition and explored the possibilities of having similar events at various schools in the region in the near future. Students of class 10 & 11 from the host school were trained to explain the exhibits to the visitors.

As part of the event, the Gujarati version of the children’s comic book on plasma “The Wonderful World of Plasma” was also distributed to all the visiting students and teachers. Students from the school were trained to explain the exhibits to visitors.   A set of 10 posters on plasma and a popular book on plasma “Living with Plasma” were also distributed to the visiting schools for display in their school’s library. IPR Outreach proposes to conduct such events in rural schools of Bhavnagar and Porbandar Districts of Gujarat in the coming months.
