DIMAPUR — Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) Singrijan organised its inaugural science and technology exhibition on the theme ‘Innovations for tomorrow: Journey into the future’ on Thursday, where 13 models were showcased, developed by 25 students from classes 6 to 10.

Students, with the assistance of teachers, created the models at the Atal Tinkering Lab established within the school.

These models included a smart dustbin, home server automation using a mobile phone, a blind stick, a rain detector, a weather monitoring device using IoT, a waterboat, a car mopping robot, a fresh food detection device, a soil irrigation system, a car parking sensor, a clap sound module, a hand gesture recognition system, and a laser light alarm.

The school principal, Aienla Longkumer, said on the occasion that the exhibition’s main objective was to ignite and instill a love for science among students. She mentioned that the platform also showcased the progress of the school after the installation of the Atal Tinkering Lab, intended to encourage creativity.

Also, she emphasised that through the exhibition, the message of shaping young minds through scientific progress and innovation was being conveyed.

Hiazu Meru, the additional secretary of School Education and the special guest at the exhibition, expressed appreciation to the school for taking up initiatives such as the science exhibition. She commended the school for achieving a pass percentage of over 80% in the 2023 HSLC exam.
