Astonishing Brains of Assisi Amused the Society

“This world makes me wonder, every time when I see it leads me into amusement. One side God’s creation speaks of creative and handy works and another side man’s reasoning power pushes me into awe.” A science exhibition by name ‘Science Xpo-2019’ was held on the 14th September 2019, wherein students showcased static and working models in St. Francis of Assisi School. The exhibition began with the welcoming ceremony to the chief guest and other guest followed by the prayer dance. Dr. T.C. Gopal, the HOD of JSS college Gokak, was the chief guest of the day, who inaugurated the Science Xpo-2019 and said that the objective of this Xpo was not only to inculcate a scientific attitude but also research-mindedness.
