Jamshedpur, July 30:Pidilite, under the aegis Fevicreate, announced the winners of the first-ever virtual Fevicreate Idea Lab, an all-India Science Contest Series held across all cities.
Sonal Jaiswal, a class 8 student of Little Flower School (LFS), Telco, emerged as a finalist for the Fevicreate Idea Labs Science Contest held at the national level.
At the competition participants had to make a 3D model showing the ideal usage or conservation of energy resources through sustainable solutions.
From more than 20,000 students who participated from different corners of the country, only 36 participants including Sonal from LFS were selected for the Grand Finale which was conducted on 9 March over virtual platform Zoom.
Sonal was awarded a certificate and an Amazon Gift Voucher of Rs. 2500 along with a momento for the school, by the Fevicreate team.
While away from school, the contest allowed future scientists to think out of the box with help and guidance from their teachers, parents, and self-research giving wings to their imagination. It aimed at encouraging students to learn, create, and innovate. The idea was to promote a “Learning by doing” attitude so that the young minds understand the theory as well as the actual working of the concepts.
The qualified 36 entries virtually presented their projects to the honorary judges during the grand finale held in March 2021. The eminent panellists included Dr. Srimathy Kesan (Ambassador to NASA, ESA & GCTC Space Camps), Nalina (Founder & Managing Director at Parent Circle) & Vivek Abrol (Sr Vice President, CPASF, Pidilite Industries). The selection of the winners was subject to the understanding and thought process behind the project.
Participants belonging to the age group 5-9 years and 9-14 years were assigned two topics each, i.e. Reuse & recycle, India in space for the former, and Sources of Energy and cities of the future for the latter group. However, the judging parameters did not vary. The overarching theme for the contest was to encourage understanding concepts & bringing creativity in all Learning while thinking about larger than life topics not limited to academics.
