The projects were based on lessons taught in class to help students find the subjects interesting.
One of the most interesting, yet simple, model was made by students of Class XI on the theme Earth's Ailing Health. They had made a cage on which was written: World's Most Dangerous Animal. On opening the door of the cage, one could see his own face on the mirror, implying that man was the one responsible for the earth’s diseased state.
