Mysuru: During the 25th Children’s Science Congress at the Karnataka State Open University campus, students from various schools and colleges displayed their creativity and concern towards society by coming out with various models.

Hityashi, I PUC, PCMB student from Gopalswamy Shishuvihara College displayed a Vacuum Cleaner Coach model which is like a coach fitted with vacuum cleaner with a water tank for cleaning purpose, cleaning brush and a drier.

“Along with my parents, I frequently travel in train to meet my relatives who are in Bengaluru. When I go to the railway station, most of the time I come across biological and plastic waste. After frequently coming across it there, an idea occurred to me that instead of using so much manpower to remove those biological and plastic wastes why can’t we make use of the coach and clean the platform which not only helps to reduce manpower but also enables to take up cleaning work much faster and keep the station neat and clean. So keeping that in mind, I decided to come up with this model which is called ‘Vacuum cleaner coach’”, added Hitayshi.

Prerna Hegde, S Sharvani, Sinchana and Mansi from Baden Powel School who wanted to come out with something good for the society have prepared an impressive model called, “Water level indicating alarm” which alerts the residents or people once the water reaches danger level. The model can also be modified and used for flood alert purpose so that before any damage is done we can get the alarm and move to safer places. Taralabalu PU College students comprising of Preethi, Chandana, Akhila and Divya as a social concern came up with awareness about food adulteration by demonstrating a cucumber coated with green colouring.

Nagpranav and Rahul M from St. Joseph’s Central School, Vijayanagar demonstrated a model called “Tree shifter’. “In recent days, due to various reasons including widening of roads, trees are uprooted. Instead of uprooting the trees, if the authorities start using ‘Tree shifter’, they can really preserve these trees. For proper environment, trees are very important. Hence, we should make use of this equipment which will really help in long run”, added Nagpranav. The duo was supported by their teacher Preethi.
