It was the students of Bishop Heber School all the way.

The students of Bishop Heber Higher Secondary School were the cynosure of all eyes at the "Ox-Edu - 2006", an inter-school science exhibition, conducted here recently. A Std. XI student of the school, Shyam Kumar, was awarded Rs. 1,000 for his innovative science model "Fermentor". Aimed at simplifying the process of fermentation of grape and curd, the model has versatile applications, says project guide A. Selvaraj. Powered by an electric motor, the beater fixed with a glass could churn curd and grapes till the bacteria raises as foam. "This is a cost effective method to prepare lassie and fermented beverages," he adds. S. Gurumoorthy, a Std. IX student of the school, was honoured with the "Young Achiever" award at the exhibition for his invention "Automatic warning signals at unmanned railway gates." Two students - P. Harikrishnan and S. Hariharan - from the school presented their papers at the 14th National Children's Science Conference held at the National College recently. While Harikrishnan presented his paper on "Development of tree autographs and the study of animals on barks", Hariharan's research paper was on "Preparation of herbarium and photo documentation."
