Professor Sharma described the usefulness of satellites in daily life as well as the importance of changes in the lifestyle of children. Dr. Aditya described the new experiments being done in physics and the progress being made by them. Dr. Ananya Bardhan said that science is not easy to understand without experiments, so in a hands-on session, she taught the students to practically work on two models: the "NRLMSIS Atmosphere Model" and the "IRI Model" by computer. Dr. Savita Bhagat explained the importance of science to the students and motivated them to do different types of experiments together. The Dean, Dr. Priya Kapoor, expressed gratitude to the chief guest and assured him of organizing such workshops from time to time.
