SCIENCE EXHIBITION

The annual science exhibition was conducted on 8th September in our school. High levels of enthusiasm were noticed in the students while displaying their projects. There were many models & ideas which took us in awe. The interesting and innovative projects submitted by the students were grouped into biology, chemistry and physics and were exhibited and demonstrated in the respective labs. The whole event was brimming with innovation, and to think that some of the projects displayed there were made by secondary students was unbelievable. The students succeeded in stealing the hearts of the visitors. Every display had its own identity and each student had tales of toil and hard work to tell, but the judges had the toughest time, selecting the best two projects in each category, for the regional level Jawaharlal Nehru science exhibition which was held in K.V Ashok Nagar.Finally, the following projects were selected under the sub themes
