Visitors at the school-level science exhibition organised by the Little Star High School, Adilabad, on Saturday were certainly impressed with the wide range of exhibits and models on display on the school premises.
Many of the 289 models on display belonged to the utilitarian type and many others belonged to the kind that made understanding science and its intricacies an easy task for students.
Sanjana Durge, a class X student, was much enthusiastic when she was explaining about her science model of ‘glucose alarm’.
“It can even save a life,” she said.
Beneficial for all
Though the model works on a simple principle, its application can really be beneficial when tried out in hospitals.
“An alarm attached to the IV fluid administration apparatus goes off at the end of the drip to warn the hospital staff of the end of the task on hand,” she added.
Among the different types of alarm exhibits was the one that warns the householders when a domestic overhead water tanks is full.
“As the alarm goes off, people in the house can switch off the pump thereby saving on power,” said R. Kavya and M. Esha, also of class X.
There was also Zuveriya Anjum from class VI with her anemometer made of four plastic water glasses.
“We can understand the dynamics of wind energy through this model,” she said of her exhibit.
“This year, we readied models and exhibits on 25 themes within the ambit of subjects such as biology, physics, chemistry, medicine and bio-physics.
As many as 66 of the exhibits fall under the category of working models,” revealed B. Giridhar Reddy, principal of the Little Star High School, as he gave an overview of the annual event.
