The seventh annual Udupi district science and technology exhibition, “BrainQuest”, organised by E-Skool here on Saturday drew a large number of visitors.

Students from 33 schools displayed 54 science models at the exhibition. The models displayed included “infrared sensor”, “protected house”, “sewage treatment”, “tree house”, “solar system”, “gloom city”, “diet and nutrition”, “food and components”, “energy conservation”, “hydraulic machines”, “life processes”, “grass cutter”, “candle experiment”, satellite and “space car”.

The students were in all praise for the exhibition. Rakshith B.L., a student of ninth standard of Sharada Residential School, along with his classmates displayed a model on “Eco-friendly village”.

“I find this exhibition amazing. We can learn a lot about physics and chemistry here. I also liked the perfume competition being held at the exhibition,” said Rakshith.

Giridhar Nayak, a student of 10th standard of Volakadu Government Composite High School, said the exhibition was a learning experience. Along with his friends, he had prepared a model on “Green Energy”. “We get new ideas when we look at the models by students of other schools. We got more exposure to robotics here,” said Nayak.

Director of E-Skool Poornima Kamath said that the main objective of the exhibition was to create interest among students in science and technology. “We want to encourage them to conduct small experiments and promote research culture in them,” she said.
