A group of 55 students of class XI from Indira Gandhi Memorial High school, accompanied by their two teachers, visited our centre on 13th November. Dr. Sarmistha Bhattacharya gave a warm welcome to them and the visitors were shown a video slide on our centre’s activities at the seminar hall of the Raja Ramanna Lecture Wings. Later on, three scientists of our centre took them in three separate groups to visit the experimental area of the K130 Cyclotron and K500 Superconducting Cyclotron. While the scientists explained them basic principles of cyclotron and related experimental set up along with different kind of detectors, the students interacted with immense interest. They expressed that the visit to VECC was very exciting and fruitful to them to feel motivated for having research career in future.
