The best way to educate students is not through lectures and theory classes, but through fun activity.

The planetarium at Anna Science Centre here has been trying out various innovative techniques to develop a scientific temper among students.

This time, it was a brilliant opportunity for students to come up with innovative ideas and exhibit their talent when a painting competition was organised at the planetarium.

Students from schools in and around Tiruchi district were invited.

Competitions were held in two levels — for students from Std. VI to VIII, and students of Std. IX and X.

Over 60 students participated in the first level, while about 30 took part in the second level.

The first level students were given the theme "Environmental pollution", while the others painted on "Future technology".

In the first level, R. Ajay Frederick of St. Peter's H.S. School, Varagalur, won the first prize, while M. Jayalakshmi of Boiler Plant Girls' H.S. School and R. Rajamalar of Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan Aditya Vidyashram, Ariyalur, won the second and third prizes respectively.
