In the year 2004, it was decided to initiate an inter school computer festival keeping pace with fast -moving trends in the world of Information Technology . A fusion of creativity, talent and skill is what Ordin@trix is all about. Ordin@trix has evolved through the years, graduating from an interschool festival at the state level, to an international event.
Over the years we have witnessed an enthusiastic student participation, not only from schools of Delhi-NCR, but also from China, Muscat, Japan and other international countries . The festival caters to students of all age groups from classes III-XII. The event has witnessed the presence of acclaimed celebrities like Mr. Amol Gupte and Miss Manju Singh, both known film & media personalities, apart from experts fromreputed technical fields and institutes. The event is whole heartedly supported by child centric organisations like Ezvidya, CHINH ,India.
Every year different software specific events are hosted , on a carefully chosen theme ,relevant to technological advances. The movies showcased at Ordin@trix have been screened at the movie festivals by PVR Cinemas and CHINH India Festival.
Ordin@trix16.0 ,the thirteenth annual computer festival hosted on 02 August 2016 by the Pyrotech club of the school under the able leadership of student president, Arunesh Singh ; received overwhelming response from all the schools of Delhi- NCR.
CHINH India as co- sponsors extended full support to the event. They also gave special awards in technical categories apart from overall best entry.
As always, this year too there was a theme dedicated to the need of the hour . This year the theme was ‘Technology- a Weapon of Peace’. The event witnessed participation from thirty seven schools in nine events, ranging from animation in scratch to video editing, movie making, website designing; with most of the events being open events i.e. age bar was removed to let the creative juices flow. Events like hacking , robotics and the surprise event( where the unexpected was expected ) was tough and rigorous testing the skills and knowledge of participants . The Photography club of the school partnered with Ordin@trix to host a photography event, for the third time, this year .
