HYDERABAD: Did you know that elephants keep standing even after they die? Or new nano gold droplets can be developed to attack just the diseased cancer cells leaving the remaining area untouched? Or that ginger and garlic are heart relaxants from 'Nature Green Pharmacy'?

At the two day 'Open Forum Exhibition' organised by students of Koti Women's College which was inaugurated here on Friday, students can discover a wealth of information about subjects and careers revolving around them through the innovative and informative exhibits made by the students.

Concepts made easy

This exhibition, which returns after a gap of seven years, is open to all schools in the twin cities and all the girls' degree colleges. Not only are the basics of Genetics, Physics, Food and Nutrition, Chemistry, Zoology, Sociology, Psychology, Languages, Mathematics, IT, Management explained, the real life applications have also been demonstrated.

On display are 'tissue culture labs', fermentation equipments such as bioreactors, 'effective learning techniques used in child psychology, 'mathematics and puzzles', 'e-commerce applications', 'evolution of languages', 'microprocessors and how they can be used to play tunes and sketch graphics' and many more exhibits.

Not only do they deepen understanding, demystifying words like 'genes', 'DNA', and 'learning disabilities', students who have constructed these projects explain each and every concept down to the last detail, looking more like teachers. Some even link it to common objects making learning fun.

Various courses offered by each department, the achievements of students, the possibilities of research and various careers that can emerge from the subjects have also been demonstrated. No wonder teachers from various schools have brought their students here. "Only a handful of boys know their minds, but a majority don't know which career to choose, such an exhibition will help," says Pramila M.K., a teacher from Little Flower High School. Students from Shankarji Memorial Girls High School seemed to have learnt a lot in a day. "We learnt about microorganisms in food, there was also a theatre show where we learnt about the HIV virus."

Saturday is the last day and the exhibition starts at 10 a.m.
