Monday, April 20, 2009 More News...

New Delhi: Around 2500 school children from Delhi and NCR interacted with the faculty of the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT-D) during its annual Open House event conducted on Saturday at its campus.

Several topics ranging from laboratory experiment to cracking JEE were raised by school children. IIT-D students showed their various projects to school children undertaken by several departments of IIT-D.

300 projects undertaken in several departments of IIT-D were shown to school children including a holographic disc with a one terabyte (1,024 GB) space, a table and chair that could be folded into a suitcase, a fan that could be used in winters, and a refrigerator that could be used without power to schoolchildren from Delhi and the NCR. It was a great experience for school children.

Nearly 450 faculty members were also involved in these projects, which cost Rs.102.29 crore.

"This is for the first time I came to IIT. I am delighted to be here," said a student, who came to IIT from Noida.

"We also interacted with the IIT students and the faculty about cracking JEE. We came to IIT for the first time," said another student.

Virendra Kumar Sharma, who has been making the glassware for research work of students at IIT-D, for the last 25 years said, "Open House was especially beneficial for the science students studying in Class XI and XII. The students were fascinated and asked us to make test tubes and even a duck from the laboratory glass in the glass blowing workshop."
