250 students from Bangalore region display Science-based models in City
Innovative ideas with a potential to be implemented in everyday life left everyone spell bound at the 38th KVS Regional Level Science Exhibition held at Kendriya Vidyalaya in the city on Monday.
Around 250 students from 47 schools in Karnataka, Goa and Kerala displayed scientific models to improve the challenges faced by the society.
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
