Our research teams scaled new heights and maintained an enviable winning streak to rewrite their success story in this much unexplored field of study. Having made it to the state level competition held at Digras in Yavatmal, all the four teams came in for high appreciation, and one of them – the Lubricant’s team – have been selected for the Nationals. The Hydrogen team reached the pre-national stage, while the Solar and photo catalyst teams scored Excellent in their citation report.
All our child scientists of the research club worked very hard for the last few months researching the topics they were interested in. They conducted experiments in different laboratories and had sessions with expert resource persons, who provided them in depth knowledge on their topics. All these experiences and exposure enabled the students to reach the highest level of the competition.
There were in all 2200 projects from different districts all over Maharashtra, out of which 68 reached the state level; of these 15 qualified for the National round.
