Ranchi, Jan. 20: An informal event, but Mech-Crosswords brought some fun to the otherwise academically inclined second day of Medha 2007, the Mech Tech Fest at BIT, Mesra.
The day started with “Exploration”, where students from over seven technical colleges presented papers on subjects ranging from nanotechnology to energy utilisation. National Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur, presenting a paper on nanotechnology, won the first prize.
In what could have come as a surprise for many, a Class XI student of DPS (Ranchi), Anand Prakash, presented a paper on the principle of divisibility. Shalini Bharadwaj, another DPS student, presented a paper on bio-diesel.
The guest lecture by Avyanshu Banerjee, the principal consultant of PricewaterhouseCoopers, was also interesting.
College students also participated in “Ghost in the Machine”, where they got an opportunity to experience real time machinery problems, and a business quiz.
