A competition under the name “Science Bee ‘16” fused all the science areas together into interactive and challenging tasks. These three sciency days took the campus by storm with those grandiose scientific segments: It had bits for math prodigies and debaters as well. The modules like Crimeline Road and SciRun thrilled the minds to solve sci-mysteries. In short, this science-fun amalgam eclipsed with all its extravaganza. The Rube Goldberg Machine Challenge challenge beseeched overcomplicated souls to do some petty tasks. The modules of MindMaze, EnviroMoot were followed by a sumptuous ‘buzz night’ marked with music and a fine dinner.

Hamara Internet Session
Why, why should women shut themselves off the cyberspace in fear of being bullied?? This session was thought to be our part in correcting this mentally waifing situation of online female harassment. This was our effort to soothe those jilted hearts who’d suffered this and to tell them that: ‘stop cribbing, start living’. It was an informative session solely for girls empowering them against misogynist potential cyber-abusers.
