Letter of Invitation

Dear Friends,

Greetings from the city of Nawabs,

Due the prevailing pandemic situation, it would not be in the interest of the students, parents and the teaching community to organise any such event which requires a gathering of any kind. But it should not dampen the spirit of learning.

We at City Montessori Group of schools believe in the old-age adage ‘every adversity is an opportunity in disguise’. Hence, we let our event “Macfair International 2020’ go online.

I take this opportunity to present before you a truncated version of the Macfair in which only those events are included which can be organised in an online format, viz., Debate, Extempore, Jingles and the Olympiads.

If your institution is interested in participating in the event, kindly let us know at your earliest convenience, so that we can send you the rules and regulations and the link to register

Convenor, MACFAIR International

Why Macfair

To know, To understand and to Rely on Results.

Curiosity is the essence of life. Human species haves a thirst for knowledge that reaches far beyond our personal needs. Science and Maths help our understanding of the world around us. Science is one of the oldest and most important academic disciplines and covers a wide variety of subjects. It is an on-going search for truth driven by human curiosity; it has relied on reasoning, observation and experimentation.

There has been a vast journey of Historians, Philosophers, Mathematicians and Scientists who have contributed greatly to unravel the mysteries of nature. Macfair International-2020 is an attempt to connect the students to this vast journey of discovery of truth. Soon after civilisation re-emerged, so did mathematics. The mathematician René Descartes brought geometry with number. With his ideas of coordinates, places and shapes could be manipulated as never before. His work also enabled the idea of curved space. The mathematics of curved space made possible the theory of relativity. The manifesto of the second revolution in geometry was written by a mystery man, Euclid in his book ‘Elements’. Euclid opened a window through which the nature of our universe has been revealed.

Today we explore space as millennia ago we explored the earth. A few people have travelled to the moon and mars. Unmanned ships have entered the outer reaches of the Solar System. Over the centuries, genius and geometry have helped us gaze beyond our horizons. What can you prove about space? How do you know where you are? Can space be curved? How many dimensions are there? These are the questions behind the five geometric revolutions of world history. It started with Pythagoras to employ mathematics as the abstract system of rules that can model the physical universe. All fundamental principles & concepts of mathematics can be adequately explained in real life by analysing the understanding principles in real terms. Today mathematics, science and computer science have given rise to new branches, like Artificial Intelligence. It deals with helping machines, find solutions to complex problems in a more human like fashion. Artificial Intelligence is associated with computer science, but it has many important links with Maths, Psychology, Biology and Philosophy. Our ability to combine knowledge from all those fields will ultimately benefit the progress of mankind.

We each exist for but a short term, and in that time, explore but a small part of the whole universe. Scientists have become the torch bearers for discoveries of our quest for knowledge. The purpose of Macfair International-2020 is to help you give the answers to these questions suggested by discoveries and theoretical advances.

“Equipped with his five senses, man explores the universe around him and calls the adventure Science.”

--Edwin Powell Hubble

Dr S C Tripathi

Secretary, Macfair International 2020

Implication of Science and Technology to mans' use is as old as 2500 B.C or much earlier when the people, of Indus Valley Civilization came to know first time about the fire and the wheel. Majority of the discoveries that occurred in the ancient years were mostly the result of serendipity. But, these chance discoveries sowed the seed of the art of science in the minds of our ancestors...

Mr Atul Bajpai

Co-ordinator, Macfair International 2020

Mathematics is a field that many people shy away from, but there are some who had a passion for numbers and making discoveries regarding equations, measurements, and other numerical solutions in history. They looked for ways to understand the world as it relates to numbers and their contributions have been very important for their generation and beyond...
