Gravitation

Identifying cross curricular connections and researching different aspects in detail, the students of class IX completed a Deep Learning project on Gravitation. As an entry event, they watched a video on the effects of gravitation in our daily lives. Thereafter discussed the reasons behind varied aspects such as why the weight of an object fluctuated in an elevator, life of astronauts in space and the free fall of objects in a vacuum.

Students to shortlist their topics for research and a hand out guided them as they conducted their research and proceeded with their projects incorporating feedback received from teachers and peer mentors.

Some of the themes explored included: acceleration due to gravity, effect of length and mass of pendulum on the time period of a pendulum, centre of gravity of some systems and its stability and artificial gravity.

TASK 1
Discussion on the topic in the expert group.

TASK 2
Students watching the introductory video.

TASK 3
Students researching in the library.

TASK 4
Students setting up the experiment.
