With a challenge to present scientific models based on the theme ‘Science and technology for challenges of life’ set for the exhibition, students demonstrated a variety of scientific innovations ranging including drip irrigation models to conserve water, circuits to prevent accidents at unmanned railway crossings, and sustainable farming methods.

Judges were seen quizzing students who had designed their models based on topics such as biodiversity, agriculture and technology, green energy, transport and communication, community health and environment and mathematical models.

Akanksha D Parab from Goa showcased an innovative idea of multi-level farming. With scarcity of land for agriculture turning out to be a major problem, Akanksha feels that using the multi-level farming method provides greater production and also allows efficient use of resources. She believes that by using reflectors, sunlight can be utilised at different levels of the building.

Inauguration

Inaugurating the science exhibition, Director of Defense Food Research Laboratory (DFRL), Dr A S Bawa said that science is a part of every day life. Stressing on the importance of observation, he advised students to try and understand the various facets of science involved in daily life.

Dr Bawa said that the science exhibition was organised to create awareness and interest among students about the topic.

The programme also included quiz competition and cultural programmes to showcase their talents. The exhibition will be held on September 6 and 7. Visit by local schools was also arranged on the occasion.
