A tough nut to crack

A tough nut to crack

Dayananda Sagar Institutions recently held a programme called ‘Universal ISE - Quiz –– Think Beyond the Limits’ for its students.

Organised for the students and by the students, the ‘Genesis’ team — a student body
 forum — dedicated the quiz to late astronaut Neil Armstrong.

With over 180 students taking part in it, the quiz was different and yet very challenging as well.

It included questions revolving around the astronaut and his work. But the participants came fully prepared and gave a good fight, although it was a very tough quiz to crack.

The quiz master for the day — Vinod N, from Sapient Consultancy — conducted the quiz efficiently and kept the audience and the participants thinking from the word go.

Ultimately, there had to be a winner and in this case, there were two  ––  Ritchie Kushalappa B and Darshan Ankith Kumar, third-year, automobile engineering students.
“I found the written round the toughest one, with a variety of questions,” says Kushalappa. Darshan adds that the quiz was unique and different, as compared to earlier ones he has taken part in.

“The stage round was equally competitive, with the teams going head-to-head. But the support of the crowd and staff really made it a memorable win,” he adds.

The runners-up were Sameer Kumar Sinha and Ritesh Kumar Sinha, fourth-year students from the information science and engineering department.

Ultimately, the students thought the quiz was a welcome break from their regular curriculum and felt it was an enriching experience.
