This annual science fest of Yuvaraja’s College was the brainchild of students of its 2013 batch to promote science in a fun way
The campus of Yuvaraja’s College which is abuzz with the vibrant science students of Mysuru is all set to bring ‘Yureka’ to the heritage city from tomorrow. ‘Yureka’ is the annual science fest of Yuvaraja’s College and the brainchild of students of 2013 batch and this idea of a science fest was brought up to promote science in a way that brings fun. Since science is mostly overlooked nowadays, Yureka is a platform where knowledge meets entertaining ways of applying it. This was the first science fest organised exclusively for the pure basic science students of the district.
The event has been a successful one since three years, encouraging sceintific innovations every year. Organised for the students of the Mysuru district, Yureka aims to reach the students from all over Karnataka this year.
Science and entertainment are going to blend and bloom during the two-day fest to be held on March 5 and 6 at Yuvaraja’s College campus. Events based on themes involving all streams of science, literary events, fun events and science exhibition have been planned.
This year, the students of Yuvaraja’s College supported by Principal Prof H Nanjegowda, Convenor Dr H N Kanthalakshmi, Prof Ruby Salestina, Prof S Latha and the students have put in their heart and soul in organising the event and have been seen spending most of their free time preparing for the grand fest.
The Yureka-2016 will be inaugurated by Vice-Chancellor of University of Mysore Prof K S Rangappa and IISC Professor and Scientist Prof K J Rao will be the guest of Honour. As a part of Yureka, a variety of events are being organised, themed on science, arts and their mixture. Apart from this, a grand scientific exhibition has been in the offing, with creative exhibits of bio-fuel manufacturing, forestry science, mathematics, food technology and Ayurvedic plants, run by institutions like CFTRI, RIE and Aranya Bhavan. Apart from this, the museums of the college are being prepared to showcase some wonderfully informative specimens from various fields, such as zoology, botany and geology.
The fest would conclude with a colourful cultural and musical evening presented by the ‘Naavu’ and ‘Kalarava team’. The state-level science fest Yureka- 2016 provides a unique platform where one can express and explore several avenues and prospects.
