A field survey for collection of statistical data was conducted by Garden High School IISER-Kolkata campus on 1 December 2017. Guided by two mathematics teachers (Mr. Anupam Chakraborty and Mr. Subinoy Das) and one office staff (Mr. Rabin Das), 21 pupils of Class VII were taken to the rural areas of Khorda-Mohanpur (Ward Number 16) near the IISER campus.
Pupils were divided into smaller groups to conduct the survey through a questionnaire related to the style of living of the local community there.
Active participation of pupils during this field work gave them an opportunity to learn how statistical survey is done in real life. It was an enriching and enjoyable activity for the participating pupils.
