High School Pedia

It is an initiative by some students to spread the light of knowledge to everyone and everywhere. It was started in the year 2015 and has grown rapidly in the past few months. By the means of this website, we try to provide information on every topic that we can reach up to. You can find different articles on this website. All these articles are written in simple language so that everyone can understand it and learn from it. We at High School Pedia believe in creative learning and this is the reason why we add our own edited graphical representations in every article.

Once a very learned man said, “Knowledge increases by not keeping it to yourself but by sharing it with others”. And we follow the same motto “Share to Learn”. The team of High School Pedia tries its best to provide you with the best and original content. Unlike many other websites, High School Pedia is famous for its original and inspiring content.

Stains And Dyes

STAINS AND DYES
Stains and dyes are used to great lengths in microbiology to highlight certain parts or organelles of cells when put under the microscope. They can also be used to classify the various parts of the cells and different cell groups in a tissue. Stains can be used on their own as well as mixed with other stains and dyes. In fact, the process of using multiple stains to highlight important parts of an already stained cell is called counterstaining. You may have used safranine while preparing a temporary mount of leaf peel to observe stomata. That is an example of a stain.
When it comes to the process of applying stains, there are broadly two different classifications: IN VIVO staining and IN VITRO staining. As the name suggests, IN VIVO staining is practised on live tissue. It helps us observe the chemical reactions taking place within a living cell. Stains are used here to highlight the chemicals and chemical reactions taking place.
IN VITRO staining is practised on cells an…

C Programming Tutorial-01

Introduction Hi guys, most of you plan to be software engineers, in fact, we are surrounded by computers. Our mobiles and laptops help us to do whatever we want, watch a movie, listen to a song, communicate with each other and whatnot. A computer contains various hardware devices, a screen, a processor, RAM, hard disk, etc. but these all are pieces of metals. The software puts all these hardware together and gives life to a computer, it is software that makes these components useful for a user and enables us to do our work. And on high school pedia we would be teaching you to program the computer according to you and make it to whatever you want. So let's get started!!!

Getting Started First, we need to download a software on which you can code. In this case, we usually download a compiler which converts high-level languages (like c, java) to machine language (which a computer understands). You can download Turbo C++ (click here) or Visual Studio (click here). I would prefer to u…

Autonomous Cars

The Problem with Self-Driving Cars
Every year, so many people die in car accidents, most of them caused because of the driver's negligence. Exorbitant amounts of money are spent just to fund awareness campaigns and stop people from “drinking and driving”.
All of this after the fact that the technology for self-driving cars is in the last stages of development. Why are self-driving cars not the next big thing yet? Companies like Tesla, Uber and heck, even Google are racing to be the next innovator of autonomous cars. “This is stupid… Obviously, the cars are expensive.” See that’s the point, these cars are not ridiculously expensive (at least not for people who own an iPhone X).
“Well then we obviously don’t have the requisite technology” That is partially true but trust me, the cars are way closer technology-wise than you may think.
The biggest problem with autonomous cars is (insert drumroll)“A Moral Dilemma”. Disappointed? Just hear me out. Imagine there is a self-driving car minding i…

Clock And Calendar

Hey guys ! It has been a very long time since we have learned something new. So now is the time we should start learning something new. Today I have selected two very basic but useful topics. If anyone of you is preparing for NTSE then these topics are must for your stage 2 Mental Ability. These are 2 very scoring topics which can get you good marks. So now let us begin with the learning.




Calendar So the first topic which are going to study is Calendar. Let us first know how will this help. by learning the tricks of Calendar you can find out the day for a given date. For example : the given date is 26th January,1950. By looking at the date you cannot tell the day but after a few calculations you will be able to.


First thing and the basic thing for Calendar is "odd day". Now you must be wondering odd day means the third day or the fifth day but no. Odd day actually means the number of days left after a whole week is complete.. For better understanding let us take an example. …

Oneplus 5T

Hello guys ! Oneplus has established itself quite well in the industry and the world now. The day's not far when it will be compared and declared superior than leading companies like Apple and Samsung. Today we'll tell you all we know about the upcoming Oneplus 5T.







So the above image is an imaginary design of how the Oneplus 5T might look (given that it will have a bezel-less display... but we'll come to that later). Oneplus launched the 3T in November 2016 and i think it's fair to say that it was a great success. It was also ranked as the no. 1 phone by many poles and websites. Then earlier this year in June, Oneplus launched the Oneplus 5 (you can checkout the review by just clicking here) which also did pretty well in the market. After these two flagships, it's obvious that expectations are more from the Oneplus 5T. Regarding the release date, in a recent interview in Brooklyn, Oneplus confirmed that they will be launching the new phone on November 16, 2017 at a …

Piezoelectric Crystal

Piezoelectric Crystal{literally_pressing electricity}
Ever wondered what it might be like to live in dark or sleep in a hot summer day without an AC ? Absurd, isn't it ? But with the rate at which we are using our resources, it may not be long before it actually happens.
Scientist across the globe are searching for new resources, stocks and technology to prevent the near, unpleasant future of current and the next gen. One of these, an unexploited tech is that of Piezoelectricity.
Piezoelectricity is an ability of some special materials (like crystals of quartz, ceramics of lithium niobite, gallium arsenide, zinc oxide) to trigger an electric charge when supposed to mechanical stress. These materials are available in basic instruments that we use in our daily life like microphones, quartz watch, gramophones. All these materials are run by the piezoelectric current.
But how does it work? When you apply force (mechanical force) on it, an electric potential, on either sides of the cryst…

India's Venture Into Space

India’s Venture Into Space
When NASA’s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin achieved a remarkable feat by becoming the first ones to land  on moon, India didn’t even have a space organisation. Well, little did anyone know that one day, ISRO, a then budding organisation would break Russia’s record by launching 104 satellites in one go. Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has not only grown as an organisation, but has also played a vital role in the nation’s development. From India’s first man made satellite Aryabhatta to the Mars Orbiter Mission, we have definitely come a long way in these 50 years. And now ISRO’s announcement of launching Aditya mission as the first Solar Coronagraph to study the Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) does not come as a surprise. Another feature that makes the organisation stand apart is the cost effectiveness. Yes, even the Sandra Bullock starrer Gravity costed more than our very own Mangalyaan.
While ISRO has definitely set a bar for the rest of the countries, m…

Important Mathematical Constants

Important Mathematical Constants
Mathematical constants are those numbers that are special and interesting because they come up in the various fields of mathematics like geometry, calculus etc. These mathematical constants are usually named after the person who discovered it and they are represented by a symbol that is usually picked up from the Greek alphabet. Mathematical constants are by definition very important. In this article we will take a look at certain mathematical constants that are more commonplace than others.
1.π (pi) or Archimedes constant (~3.14159):π is defined as the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. This is probably the most popular mathematical constant. So π is the circumference of the circle whose diameter is 1 unit. You might have seen it popping up when calculating the area of a circle (πr2) or the circumference of a circle (2πr). It has many uses throughout mathematics from calculating the area of certain shapes to the Gaussian integral in…

Judwaa 2 First Day Box Office Collection

Hey guys High School Pedia is back with another awesome article. After a hard struggle for the mid term exams we present you an awesome option for relaxation cum entertainment.


2017 HAS BEEN A DULL YEAR FOR Bollywood as far as the box office performance of films is considered. Almost all the big films have failed, except Toilet EPK, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Jolly LLB 2 and to some extent, Raees and Kaabil. Even superstars like Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have failed to attract audiences with Tubelight and Jab Harry Met Sejal. On the other hand, it is the small films that have managed to shine (Hindi Medium, Lipstick Under My Burkha, Newton, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan).

In such a situation the industry had pinned its high hopes on Judwaa 2, featuring a rising star like Varun Dhawan, who has been very consistent as far as opening of his films are concerned, and is directed by David Dhawan, who is known for making great entertainers. So how much did it manage to collec…
