The third day of the conference “Vikasa” will exclusively cater to school children from Standards VIII to XII. Nearly 25 experts will address the 1,000-odd participants.
On the final day, school children from Coimbatore schools came to the Amrita campus for a day-long immersion in the field of computing and science and technology. Here too, the emphasis was on technological solutions for energy, water and environment. Hundreds of students from PSG Public School; Govt. School, Kuniyamuthur; Govt. Higher Secondary School, Mathampatti and Ramakrishna Mission Vidyalaya joined students of Amrita Vidyalayams in Ettimadai, Palakkad and Tirupur for the unique experience.
Amrita TBI arranged a brain storming session on Social Ideas for Future Conferences which drew massive participation from about 120 students. Those representing Nehru Institute of Engineering Technology, Coimbatore and Dr. G.R.D. College of science, Coimbatore were declared winners for their chosen theme of Global Warming.
“We haven’t participated in any exclusive international conferences for women before. This was really fun and at the same time, thought provoking. There were many interesting sessions. Thank you Amrita for giving us such a wonderful opportunity,” remarked the winners of TBI’s contest.
