A day at JRPC is not a day of travel to the college by the college bus to sit in dull and lifeless classrooms. So what more??
A class room teaching blended with interaction, learning by doing. That is not all
Come Mondays and it is time for general assembly by the different classes on a rotation basis. The class that maintained the bulletin board gets a chance to organize the assembly in the forthcoming week. Competition strengthens week after week and the experience is from better to best- both for the organizing class and the rest.
Come Tuesdays and it is time for ‘one week, one school, one concept’. Every team gets a chance to reach out to the children of the rural, nearby schools luring them into the world of science through their simple technological innovative models, every other team gets a chance to organize an event and manage it.
Come Fridays of every alternate week, there is ISTE Students’ chapter activity ranging from student experts talk to student amateurs talk, invited talks and prototype demonstration by the creators to the rest of students.
Come Saturdays and it is time for club activity, where students belonging to the different clubs share their incubated ideas and go on as a team to create. Techno Club, Ham Club, Electrical spark club, gardening club are a few to name
Come any day and there is one hour of sports time. Students unwind the day-long academic activity with this hour of sports.
