NOVUM 2018

The annual science fest Novum 2018 was ushered in with numerous informative science and
Math models ranging from a computerized Periodic table to an automated plant watering system. These working models were innovative and practical, covering topics like soil moisture sensors, stages in the growth of a foetus, smoke controlling machines, wall climbing robots and the integration of Mathematical concepts in the architectural designs at the world famous Taj Mahal. We had as our distinguished judges, eminent personalities who were in awe of the exhibits and appreciated the practical application of Science in our day-to-day experiences. The event also had a number of mesmerizing handcrafted artifacts and mouthwatering food on offer.
