The Chemical Hobby began at The Scindia School over 50 years ago. It was initiated to sensitise the students about the presence of Chemistry in daily life. Since inception, this hobby class has grown from strength to strength. The students get a chance to make their first cake of soap, natural colours, and perfumes using material available within the school.
Activities like Chemistry Quiz online/offline, Crossword Making Competition, Crossword Solving Competition and theme based Science Exhibitions are conducted regularly. Study of the food chain and prevention of diseases also form a part of this class.
The students are taken for industrial visits where they also observe laboratory techniques. They experiment and note different chemical reactions. All experiments are conducted under the vigil of the teacher in charge, strictly observing all safety measures.
The Chemical Hobby helps in tickling the sense of curiosity in the students, a scientific temper, and awareness about the environment.
