This promises to be a mega celebration of science for the general public. Do visit our dedicated website for further details.

This activity is part of Khwarizmi Science Society's National Science Movement.
Humanity's deepest desire for knowledge is justified by continuing the quest for knowing and understanding the universe in which we live. The Buraq Space camp is organized every year so that students and Buraq campers could get a chance to glimpse facets of the universe around them. The Khwarizmi Science Society plays a major role in the camp every year.
This year the KSS participated with these topics:
- Nuts and Bolts that drives you: The Luxuries of modern cars by Ahmed Waqas Zubairi
- Composition and Contents of the Universe by Dr. Murtaza Saleem
- Live Solar Viewing by Mr. Umair Asim
Khwarizmi Science Society is going to participate in the 9th Buraq camp which is going to be held from 19th of December to 31st of December 2012. KSS will be joining on 24th of December and will be delivering four lectures on different topics, which include:
- The Strange, Strange World of Quantum Physics and Quantum Computing.
- A Gentle Introduction to Solar Thermal Energies.
- Earthquakes: The true story.
- Cosmology and Us.
The focus of this presentation will be the application of Non linear sciences to practical engineering and technological problems. Traditional "linear" sciences (that we all study in universities and colleges and schools) fail to provide answers to most of our questions because God made the world Nonlinear. It has been hailed as the science of the 21st century and a revolution in scientific method. Though, till now, most of the work in nonlinear sciences has been done by theorists in laying the foundations of its different aspects, the past few years have witnessed the increasing interest of technologists and engineers in applying it to practical real life problems. Digital communications, stunning computer graphics, data compression, stock market prediction and controlling heart attacks are a very ill-represented part of a wide spectrum of applications that cover all major areas of technology. We will see the different aspects of nonlinear theory such as chaos theory, complex adaptive systems, fractal geometry and how they interpret each other. The speaker will emphasize the utililty of these new tools in understanding very complicated phenomenon; from circuits and quanta to wars and living cells. Finally he will give a brief overview of his work regarding use of chaotic dynamics to send secret messages. The scope of the presentation will be very general and i will avoid use of any equations to explain ideas. The object of this presentation would be to motivate people rather than bombarding them with equations. Any student of engineering, sciences, economics, medicine or social sciences should be able to follow. People from all disciplines are welcome.
The demonstrator demonstrates the concept and applications of numerical analysis and DSP. He also gave demonstrations of the techniques with special emphasis on numerical convolution and the frequency response of a passive circuit. He displayed the softwares he had developed that gave the frequency response of different circuits. He also briefed the participants upon Pascal programming.
