Five students, accompanied by Ms. Gauri Sen and Ms. Shruti Chandhoke had yet another opportunity to participate in the Shanghai International Youth Science and Technology Expo (SIYST), the seventh of its kind held this year between 20-23rd July at Shanghai, China.
We were indeed proud to be the only school representing India at this expo. Among the 254 participants from13 countries, and a total of 45 exhibits showcased, we take pride in announcing that our exhibit titled: Assistive applications for the visually impaired bagged the first prize. The team comprised of SparshTanwar ,Aditya Kabu , Ansh Matta, Aditya Sharma, and Anisha Arya who worked under the guidance of Ruby ma’am, Gauri ma’am
Not only this, our team also won the 2nd prize in the bridge making competition, in which a bridge had to be constructed using Styrofoam and thread.
Even our teachers were no way behind. Gauri Sen Ma’am was awarded a prize for her presentation titled: Innovation in education using technology.
Of course, what is work without no leisure. Our trip to Beijing was the icing on the cake. We got a chance to explore the Great Wall of China, The Summer Palace and Tianamen Square. We also visited the Jade factory and the local market to buy some souvenirs for our friends and family.
It was indeed an enriching and a memorable experience, which would not have been possible without the support of the Science Faculty ,school management and accompanying teachers, who took care of us as our family would.
