Two XI Standard students: Nruhari Vishwanath S and Asoka R G pulled off a double triumph when they entered the apparatus they had designed and built to demonstrate energy transformations into two separate competitions and won prizes in both.
Their apparatus converted energy from a foot pressing on a rubber bag of water into electrical energy. Their knowledgeable and eloquent explanation of the energy transformations involved impressed the judges in both the District Level Science Exhibition organized by India Cements at Sankar School on 22nd January, where they won first prize and also at the RECT Polytechnic Science Exhibition which was held a week later where they came second: an impressive performance from two impressive students.
Coming first in the Sankar Cements competition won Rs.5,000 for the School. The second place at RECT Polytechnic gained the pair Rs.3,000 to share: a most welcome reward for their efforts.
