  2. 2. TOPIC – CLUB ACTIVITIES SCIENCE CLUB, SCIENCE FAIR, EXHIBITION, MANU SCRIPT, MAGAZINES, FIELD TRIP AND EXCURSIONS.
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION School clubs and organizations, are student-based school organizations. Clubs primarily focus on four aspects: fundraising, community service, career interest, and interpersonal dynamics (also known as group dynamics). In order to fully develop the whole person, all students are required to participate in either a yearlong club or seasonal sport. It is our philosophy that such participation is vital in developing well- rounded students, broadening student interests, and encouraging a strong ownership of Saint Francis High School. Additionally, with college admission becoming so competitive, colleges are now looking for students who show participation in school activities beyond the classroom. In order for a yearlong activity to be counted for a student’s participation requirement, the club or activity must either be academic, competitive or service oriented. A strong commitment and weekly attendance is required.
  4. 4. TYPES OF CLUB SCIENCE CLUB The Science Club is the place for students who are interested in science to learn about all scopes of science from medicine to chemistry to physics to the environment. Science Club bridge in- school and out-of-school learning and foster the development of skills, such as experimentation, critical thinking, and problem solving, mounting and preserving the specimens. Rendering school services in health and sanitation through managing a first aid squad. Helping the community by way of demonstration on health and hygiene, improvement of agriculture, eradication of superstitious belief etc. Publishing school science magazine. Preparing science albums, Preparing still/Working models on science topics .Maintaining a bulletin board for displaying science news .Conducting essay competition on scientific problems. Arranging science discussions, debate, essay writing, Conducting workshops Conducting science quiz competitions, etc. Arranging the science excursions and visits. Arranging science exhibitions, Film shows and science fairs. Organizing lectures, debates, seminars, symposia etc.
  5. 5. The Aims and Objectives of a Science club  To provide opportunities for bringing school close to the society.  To help the students in imbibing The habit of self-reliance, self-dependence and love for manual work.  To develop training in scientific method of problem solving.  To develop students, grate interest in scientific facts and events related to one’s surroundings.  To develop interest in scientific hobbies.  To develop the creativity and encourage the habit of exploration.  To provide opportunity for the development of the constructive, explorative and inventive faculties of the students.  To create interest in latest inventions and discoveries of science in various fields  To develop students, interest and participation in the practical application of the knowledge related to different branches of sciences. SCIENCE FAIR A science fair experiment is generally a competition where contestants present their science project, results in the form of a report, display board, and/or models that they have created. The science fair is a fair where students present their science project results in the form of a report, display board, and models that students have created. Science fairs include students in elementary, middle and high schools in science and technology
  6. 6. activities. It is so important to motivate students with science. Because they can share their projects, ideas with their friends, parents and people who visit the fair. It also contributes to the social development of students. Purposes and Objectives of the Organization of Science Fair 1. Science fairs may help in knowing about the methods, techniques and aid material developed by the individual teacher, students or institution and deriving benefit by coming into contact each other. 2. Science fairs bring the schools quite close to community and the society. 3. Science fairs help in providing satisfactory forum and opportunity for the healthy competition on the individual and the institutional level. 4. Such forum helps in bringing out the future scientists into lime light and thus may prove quite helpful in catching them young for being trained as a skilled and technical personal and inventors for
  7. 7. the growth of the society, nation and mankind. 5. These fairs provide opportunity to the talented or creative students for the nourishing and nurturing of their creative talents. 6. Science fairs interest in the students for science and thus may help in making the study of science a joy in itself. 7. From these fairs the students get opportunity to see the individual or collective performance of other students for being encouraged and inspired to work hand in the pursuit of science. 8. Science fairs prove a good media and means to the science students for trying out theory into practice. 9. Science fairs afford opportunity to the students as well as members of the community to understand the practical application and utility of science. EXHIBITION In education, the term exhibition refers to projects, presentations, or products through which students “exhibit” what they have learned. It play a major role in enhancing the overall development of students. Every now and then, schools organize exhibitions to make learning a better and fun experience for students. In schools, the most common forms of exhibitions are science and arts.
  8. 8. Objectives of exhibition  Promoting interest in Science and Technology among younger generation.  Encouraging scientific and technological creativity among students.  Promoting psychomotor skills among school students through self designed models or simple apparatus.  Encouraging problem solving approach. MANUSCRIPT A manuscript (abbreviated MS for singular and MSS for plural) is any document written by hand or typewritten, as opposed to being mechanically printed or reproduced in some indirect or automated way. Before the arrival of printing, all documents and books were manuscripts. Manuscripts are enriched with pictures, border decorations, elaborately embossed initial letters or full-page illustrations. The importance of manuscript formatting stems from being a requirement by publishers, agents, proofreaders and editors, because it makes your manuscript easier to assess. As a writer myself, I can tell you that the first thing I do when opening up a new document on my computer is formatting. The Journal of the Effective School Project editorial committee will evaluate
  9. 9. articles submitted for publication consideration. Manuscripts must adhere to the following guidelines to be considered: 1. Length: The manuscript, including references, charts and tables generally should not exceed ten typewritten pages. 2. Style: Manuscripts must conform to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2009, 6th ed.). 3. Cover Letter: Submit a cover letter explaining the relationship of the article to the theme of the journal. Indicate that the article represents original material and is not currently under consideration by any other publication. 4. Cover Page: Include the following information on a separate sheet: title of the manuscript; author's name, complete mailing address, business and home phone numbers, institutional affiliation and address; biographical information about each author (not to exceed 50 words per author). 5. Abstract: Following the cover page, submit an abstract of 100 to 150 words and short biography of the contributing authors. 6. Photographs: All photos embedded in the manuscript have participants’ permission to be included in the manuscript for possible publication. Students who are younger than 18 years old have guardian consent for their photographs to be displayed in the manuscript for possible publication. MAGAZINES A magazine is a publication, usually a periodical publication, which is printed or electronically published (sometimes referred to as an online magazine). Magazines are generally published on a regular schedule and contain a variety of content.
  10. 10. School and college magazines are useful in many ways. They have a great educative value. They encourage students to think and write. So they develop their writing skills and talent. These magazines are a means of bringing the ex-students and all the members. In schools and colleges, students are taught to read books and to acquire knowledge from the works of great authors. But mere reading of books is not sufficient for education. So the students are
  11. 11. also taught how to write and express their own ideas in a good form and in different languages. With this aim in view school and college magazines are published. They contain a collection of articles, poems, stories and plays. They are written mainly by the students and sometimes by teachers and past pupils. In fact, young talent finds its first exposure through this medium. Magazines are generally published annually. FIELD TRIP An educational field trip can be an integral part of the instructional program. Good field trips provide participants with firsthand experience related to the topic or concept being discussed in the program. They provide unique opportunities for learning that are not available within the four walls of a classroom. The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their classmates. The aim of this research is to observe the subject in its natural state and possibly collect samples. Field trips are most often done in 3 steps: preparation, activities and follow-up activity. Preparation applies to both the student and the teacher. Teachers often take the time to learn about the destination and the subject before the trip. Activities that happen on the field trips often include: lectures, tours, worksheets, videos and demonstrations. Follow-up activities are generally discussions that occur in the classroom once the field trip is completed. Field trips also provide students the opportunity to take a break from their normal routine and experience more hands on learning. Places like zoos and nature centers often have interactive displays that allow children to touch plants or animals.
  12. 12. Advantages of School Field Trips  Field trips give students the opportunity to visit new places and new environment.  For young students, get the opportunity to interact with one another in a more informal, natural and relax manner.  Through field trips, students learn by actually doing a hands- on experience.  Field trips are wonderful opportunities for children or students to be exposed to places that are not commonly or normally visited by their family.  Field trips are effective methods to teach difficult or complicated subjects like biology, physics, chemistry or historical facts. EXCURSIONS An excursion is a trip by a group of people, usually made for leisure, education, or physical purposes. It is often an adjunct to a longer journey or visit to a place, sometimes for other (typically work- related) purposes. Public transportation companies issue reduced price excursion tickets to attract business of this type. Often these tickets are restricted to off-peak days or times for the destination
  13. 13. concerned. Short excursions for education or for observations of natural phenomena are called field trips. One-day educational field studies are often made by classes as extracurricular exercises, e.g. to visit a natural or geographical feature. The term is also used for short military movements into foreign territory, without a formal announcement of war. Purpose of excursion The purpose of the excursion department is to provide students within the MSW program an opportunity to learn hands-on through an internship work experience. Students that complete the foundation field practicum which focuses on generalist social work practice arrive in the advanced year with a solid knowledge of theoretical frameworks that guide generalist practice, with an understanding and acceptance of social work values and ethics, and with well developed skills related to beginning social work practice. Field education in the foundation years provides the student with an opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of social service systems in urban settings, apply theoretical knowledge to urban problems such as poverty, and to determine how to access appropriate community resources. In addition, students learn to communicate oral, written, and technological information reflecting professional social work skills.
  14. 14. Advantage of excursions (i) They provide direct source of knowledge and acquaint the student with first hand information. (ii) They provide an opportunity to the student for development of his aesthetic sense. (iii) By such excursion students become interested in the exploration of their environment. (iv) They help to develop in students a love for nature and to acquaint them with the real happiness in the outside world. (v) It helps in development of power of observations, exploration, judgment and drawing inferences, problem solving ability of students. (vi) It helps in developing qualities of resourcefulness, self- confidence, initiative and leadership amongst students. (vii) It helps in developing cooperative attitude and various others (viii) It helps in proper utilization of leisure. (ix) It motivates the students for self-study and self-activity.
  15. 15. COCLUSION A study conducted by surveying school-age students in the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health revealed that 70% of adolescents are involved in some form of extracurricular activities. Other studies have shown being involved in extracurricular activities reduces the likelihood of dropping out of school, likelihood of committing a criminal offense, and leads to higher educational retainment and success and achievements in school work, not to mention that the greatest advantage of participating in at least one of these activities is the decrease in anti-social behaviors and students growing up to be more successful in communication and relationships. Involvement in after school clubs and extracurricular activities is beneficial in a variety of ways for the K-12 population. For example, school clubs can offer a place to form relationships and foster learning, and this was demonstrated with multiple groups. Research including students with disabilities involved in extracurricular activities show that they were more likely to have friends than those who were not involved. Similar findings with racial and ethnic minorities and immigrant adolescents showed that minority, first, and second generation adolescents were less likely than their counterparts to have friends and be engaged in relationships, however, extracurricular activities facilitated socialization. Thus, being involved in activities outside of school increases student’s chances of creating friendships. Furthermore, extracurricular activities increase positive self- development, regardless of where the activities take place (at school or away from school) Likewise, female adolescents involved in school based extracurricular activities had higher self-esteem than those not involved. The overall findings demonstrate that involvement in activities; whether it be sports, clubs, or school- based programs, have a positive impact on the participant’s life.
