Tod Fod Jod Club
The Tod Fod Jod Club under National Innovation Council, Planning Commission, India was initiated in our school on 4 September 2012, for students of Middle Department, following the guidelines of CBSE, to develop analytical & scientific skills among children:
- Shivank Sharma of class XI C has designed a small power saving table lamp.
- Club members of classes VI to VIII prepared a 'Mini Cooler', using spray bottle, fan, battery and wires. The fan is attached to the nozzle of the spray bottle and when the circuit is switched on, the moving fan gives a shower of cool water. This gives the soothing effect to the user in hot weather. It's a mini replica of the cooling devices used in various events.
- Akshat Batra of class VIII C prepared an Electronic Skating Board. It has been made using skate board, motors, wheels, 24 V rechargeable battery, wires, dual Electronic Speed Controller(ESC), U clips and Y connectors. Proper connections of electronics devices were made below the skate board and wheels were also attached. The skate board is controlled by using a hand operated remote controlled that can be used to control its speed.
- Club members of Middle Department prepared 'Waste Paper Slippers' using old newspapers, fevicol, cardboard and ribbons. These slippers can take a weight of about 100 kg.
- Club members of Middle Department prepared a 'Solar Cap' that has a small solar panel and a fan attached to it. The panels on the cap capture sunlight causing the fan to move.
- Devangi Dhawan of class IV B prepared a Hydraulic Elevator using shoe box, match box, 2 syringes and a pipe based on the principle of Pascal law.
- Vishakha of class IV B prepared a Windmill using plastic fan, motor small bulbs connecting wires.
- Vidisha and Jiya Singharia of Class IV A prepared a Pulley using a pen stand, wheel and thread
- Suvankar Panja (X E) made a projector using smart phone, cardbox, magnifying glass & chart paper. He used the concept of convex lens as converging & magnifying lens.
- Kunal Kakria (X E) prepared a game using foil paper, switch, bulbs, magnets & metallic spherical balls. It was based on the principle that current flows in a continuous closed path. In this game, named ATOM, circuit is broken but whenever the ball touches the boundary, the circuit gets completed & bulb glows.
- The club members created a 'Fluid Electricity Project' using copper plates, zinc rods, discarded bottles filled with tap water, LED's and connecting wires. When copper and zinc plates are inserted into the bottles, the digital clock starts using the power of water and LED glows.
- A 'Smart Game' was created by using bulb, bulb holder, wire pieces and a battery. This game was based on 'Match the Column' in which appropriate match of the countries and their capitals results in glowing of bulb.
- Using plastic bottle, motors, fans, wires switches and a battery box, the students made a 'Motor Boat'. Two fans and a motor were fixed in a bottle in such a manner that when the circuit is switched on, the motor and fans help the movement of 'motor boat' in water.
- A battery operated light and fan was made using 2 cells, a battery, 2 bulbs, a motor and a small fan. All these were assembled in a discarded plastic box.
- On 23 July 2014, the club members made a 'Fantastic Sensor', using LED, wires, sensor (Metallic ball & spring), battery, clip, screws and a wooden box. When tapped near the sensor, the metal ball in the sensor vibrates, completing the circuit and lighting up the bulb.
- A 'Helping Robot' was made using waste water bottles, wires, battery, cells, switch and wheels in the session held on 13 August 2014.
- Using a plastic can, straws, motor, battery, tape etc, the club members made an 'Auto Sprinkler' system on 27 August 2014. The straws rotate in a fixed manner with the help of a motor. The rotating straws throw out water and help to sprinkle water on nearby plants.
- Students of Tod Fod Jod club have made a Car Washing System by using showers, CD cover, plastic tubes, syringes, a balloon and toy cars. The system works by using water pressure. A hydraulic lift was made by using syringes & tubes, CD cover acted as a base for the cars and water was spread from balloon connected to the shower.
- In the session held on 30 April 2013, students of Tod Fod Jod club made a waterfall using thermocol, pump from a cooler and plastic boxes.
- A team of eight club members have been working on the first Tod Fod Jod club challenge. Students were required to design & create a system that automatically tweets the high & low temperature from the school daily without any human intervention. The model has been submitted to the Tod Fod Jod mentors.
- The session held on 12 September 2012 focused on battery torch. The students observed all components of the battery torch & discussed their functions.
- The session held on 23 September 2012 focused on dismantling of dry cell in order to understand its components, composition and working of the cell.
- On 15 October 2012, the session aimed at innovative scientific ways to use waste material. Students prepared a working boat from waste materials like CD cover, outer structure of iron, battery and motor of a remote controlled car.
- On 8 November 2012, students were guided to dismantle the remote control used for T.V. sets They studied and observed its different parts minutely and later made a chart displaying different components of the remote.
- On 27 November 2012, students were taught to make a hovercraft using a CD, a sipper, tape and balloons.
- Students learnt to make a drill machine using a toy clip, motor and allpins, in the session held on 21 December 2012.
- On 26 December 2012 students made a motor boat. They dismantled a toy car to take out its circuit. Using the circuit, plastic bottle, cells and fan they made a motorboat which could be operated using the remote of the toy car.
- Tod Fod Jod Mela was held on 21 January 2013 in Modern School, Barakhamba Road. 22 Students participated in the Mela with 11 'Jod' Materials. Through a demonstration, the students explained each of their eleven 'jods' in an impressive way. Chief Guest, Mr Sam Pitroda appreciated the efforts of students. Certificates of Appreciation were awarded to teachers and the students received Certificates of Participation.
