Harsh Vardhan dedicates Guinness World Record to Sir CV Raman

Harsh Vardhan dedicates Guinness World Record to Sir CV Raman

Kolkata, Nov 7 (UNI) The Guinness world record of the most people assembling radio kits simultaneously has been successfully achieved at the ongoing India International Science Festival (IISF) 2019 by Vijana Bharti and Ministry of Science and Technology at Science City, Kolkata on Thursday.

While receiving the certificate of Guinness World record, he said “We have not broken the record but we have successfully achieved it. As today is the birth anniversary of Nobel laureate Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, I want to dedicate this award to him and to Sir Jagadish Chandra Bose.”

There were 490 participants from six schools of Kolkata at the event, out of which 268 successfully assembled the radio kits simultaneously.

Students of the Army Public School, Barrakpur, Kendriya Vidhyalaya, Kosipur, Infocuf India public school, Bira, Satish Chandra Memorial School, Thakdan, Ashoka Hall Girls Higher, Park Street and Mount Litera Zee School, Joka were involved in this endeavour.

Team consisting of various electronics engineers, Radio Amateurs (HAM Radio), Kolkata and scientists from Vigyan Prasar, Delhi trained the students to build their own transmitter units.

Like all other electromagnetic waves, radio waves travel at the speed of light in vacuum. They are generated by electric charges under-going acceleration, such as time varying electric currents. Radio waves are generated artificially by transmitters and received by radio receivers, using antennas.

IISF 2019 is a mega event that showcases cultural importance of science and technology of the country. It gives scientists, inventors and researchers a chance to interact closely with students and citizens from all walks of the life.

The science festival offers many different forms of engagement such as lectures dialogues, panel discussions and debates, hands-on demonstrations, shows, exhibitions and workshop which aims to engage public with science and show the ways how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) provide solution and improves lives of people.
