The benefits of group work

The benefits of group work

With rapid advancement in technology on a global scale, students are also required to instill and modify the power of technology in them and have a better understanding of the same. To further this cause, the electronics department of Jyoti Nivas College organised its annual electronics project exhibition titled ‘Spark 2014’ recently, which had the entire college campus filled with curious exhibits. 

This exhibition had a lot to offer to the participants as well as the onlookers. Projects of various categories ranging from small-scale to large-scale were exhibited. All of these projects were conceptualised and executed by the second and final-year electronics students, who were guided by Sarathi and Satish, whom the students call ‘Robo Masters’.

Some of the exhibits included an intelligent ambulance traffic light controller, intelligent stick for the blind, speed control system for vehicles, helmet safety sensor, fire fighting robot and two-element interferometer among others. 

Moreover, these projects had a high level of application capability and defined the need of the present day technical world. What is impressive is that a few of the projects have already started being implemented under the guidance of prestigious institutes like Indian Institute of Astrophysics, giving the students an idea of how useful their hard work has been. “This was the second time that I coordinated this exhibition and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We worked really hard and the preparations for the project began two months in advance. A day before the event, we stayed in college till late to assemble our projects and this brought us together as a team. It was an unforgettable experience which will enhance our career,” said Pavithra C, coordinator.

Gayatri NB, a third-year student whose exhibit won first prize, said, “I’ve never worked in a group before. Therefore, I never had to share my victories or losses. But group participation has taught me to adapt to every situation. When I was declared the first-place winner, I was on top of the world. The icing on the cake was the fact that this expanded my horizon and helped me give back to the society.”

It was a great learning experience for the students. Keerthana KV, a participant, added, “It was a nice blend of innovation and learning. The exhibition was very interesting and we gained a lot of insight on the latest technologies that are being used almost everywhere around us.”
