Aman Malhotra, a student of Class-XI who prepared a model “Seventh Sense” a tool to help the blind people in their day today movement said that the idea behind the exhibit was to help the blind as they cannot go out without some one’s help and this tool helps them to navigate their surroundings and thus they become self dependent.

Saksham Kapoor and Priyanka, the students of Class-X prepared an exhibit on multiple terrace farming.

They said that this innovation will be helpful in curbing not only land and air pollution but also will increase the production of crop.
Nivedita, Coordinator IX-X  said that the exhibition was successful in bringing abstract learning to the real knowledge  and such activities always help the children in learning by the  method of doing.
Ravinder, Physics Teacher who played a key role in the organizing the exhibition said that these days students learn better when they apply their knowledge in relation to what they are taught. He also added that by providing exploratory experiences, encouraging creative thinking and promoting psychomotor skills helps the students to channelize their potentials towards the development of the country.
