2 Parallel Sessions:    We want to demonstrate some fundamental scientific principles using some experimental gadgets. These sessions shall be conducted by experts who have been invited for the purpose. Appart form this these sessions shall also be utilized for special talks on International Science Olympiad, Chandrayan I & II & Science is fun stage shows etc.

Ask a question from the experts : The idea is that we have 3 to 4 mentors on the dais and they hold an interactive session with the students. Students shall be asked to give there questions in advance and mentors shall answer some of them during this session.
