For the first time, students from boarding schools in Karnataka showcase their talent at the science fair

It was a unique experience for the students of boarding schools in Karnataka who got a platform to showcase their scientific skills by providing work models and projects on environmental conservation, power generation, road safety, accident prevention, flood control, mathematics and physics.

The first state-level science exhibition of government-run boarding schools organized by the state government proved to be an ideal platform for children who were exposed to the world of science and technology .

Out of a total of 1,136 boarding schools in the state where children from socially and educationally disadvantaged sections of society study, 200 schools took part in the two-day event which ended on Saturday at the Palace Grounds.

Reputed scientific organizations and institutions such as Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Agasthya Foundation, Jawaharlal Nehru Planetarium and Bharatha Jnana Vignana Samiti also participated in the exhibition of two days. The latest weapons, planes and other equipment from the army and the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) were the other attractions.

“We wanted to give them (students) the forum to explore and see what the possibilities are for them and also to interact with other schools. The basic idea was that they will also start learning in other schools,” said Rakesh Kumar K, Commissioner of the Department of Social Welfare.

Echoing similar thoughts, SK Mahadeva, one of the organizers of the expo, said the aim of the expo was to give better exposure to students through the innovative technologies in the country, “it’s that’s why we invited ISRO, the army, HAL and the prestigious organizations.”

The exhibition was opened on Friday by Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai. It was held under the aegis of the Karnataka Residential Education Institutions Society (KREIS) and was organized collectively by the Department of Social Welfare, Department of Minority Welfare, Department of Tribal Welfare and the Backward Classes Welfare Department.
