Mandar Mohan Kolhatkar, Grade IV, COIS, is now the national level winner of the Raman Young Science Innovator (RYSI) Award for the Junior Category.
Mandar was amongst the 105 RYSI national finalists who got selected after 4 rounds of reviews from among 5625 participants.
National finals were a live event held at Nobel Laureate Sir C.V. Raman's home in Bengaluru in February 2018. The finalists had build a hands-on working model with assorted simple materials provided by RYSI team to best explain the scientific topic given to them on the spot.
It has been rightly said that the "Heart of education is the education of the heart". And a child's heart not only seeks knowledge but also yearns for stimulating learning through exciting things, places and people. Keeping in mind the overall development of the students, Calorx Olive International School provided its students from Grade 1 to 5 with a rejuvenating break through a 1 night 2 day trip to Little Rann of Kutch. It was commendable on the part of the little ones to self-manage them throughout the Trip. We at COIS promote these skills through Learning beyond classrooms!
