Some of the brightest young brains of eastern India are out in full force this week to display their technological prowess at the 31st Eastern India Science Fair and Engineering Fair at the Birla Industrial and Technological Museum (BITM). Few facets of modern Indian life have escaped the innovative and remarkably thorough scientific gaze of the participants. School students from as far as Bihar, Orissa and Assam have converged on the fair bringing with them fresh ideas and innovations. The event has been divided into two separate components: the 31-year-old science competition and the two-year-old engineering section that is devoted to the exploits of college-level students.
