Thrissur: Long queues at the five venues of the State Schools Science Fair on Wednesday gave testimony to the growing interest among children in science.

Schoolchildren thronged the stalls on Wednesday to watch the inventions and projects of the young scientists with awe and interest.

Boat safety

Against the backdrop of Thattekkad and Thekkady boat tragedies, the safe boat service became one of the favourite themes for this fair. Security systems which prevent overturning of boats found place in many stalls.

On-the-spot competitions and exhibition of products made by students from 43 special schools were held at Holly Family Convent Girls High School. .
