The presenters were excited and confident while explaining about their models. All projects and models were captivating. The students were also keen to learn and gain knowledge from it. The aim to organize such an exhibition was to make the students aware and, develop their interest to research further other than what they have learned from books. These types of events are a source to increase knowledge and interest in the field of Science & Technology.
At 4:00 P.M. students went on-campus tour with their assigned coordinators. Lab visits were the prominent feature of the campus tour as labs of different engineering fields were visited where students witnessed new technology machines, robots, and equipment. The Lab Coordinators demonstrated the working of those machines and students were also involved in asking doubts and learning new stuff from them. In an endeavour to promote a scientific attitude among budding young students, this event was one of its kind which ended up at 5:30 P.M. It was overall an exciting and memorable education trip where everyone not only enjoyed the day but also interestingly learned something new. Looking forward to more of such trips.
