Young Researchers Showcase Their Works in IRIS National Science Fair

Bhubaneswar:13/7/18;A prototype of the machine has been on display at the South-East India Regional Camp of IRIS National Science Fair which began at the SOA (Deemed to be University) on Friday.

“I thought such an innovation is required today when most elderly people are in need of assistance,” Anwesha Sengupta, a student of Class X at the Delhi Public School, NTPC, Korba in Chhatishgarh, said.

Few of the 14 other innovations on show included a Medicine ATM, Automatic Ploughing Machine and Automatic Fire Prevention Security system in vehicles.

Sabyasachi Pandey, representing the Kanika High School in Odisha’s Sundargarh district, proudly explained the functioning of the Medicine ATM he had developed. A digital prescription given to the patient is fed into the ATM. The Bar Code scanner in the ATM then examines the prescription before the tablets or other medicines are correctly delivered to the buyer.

“No one wants to stand in a crowded medicine shop anymore. So this will help the people and no time will be wasted,” he said.

Fourteen teams of bright and innovative students from the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry, Karnataka, West Bengal, Chhatisgarh and Odisha are attending the science fair which was inaugurated by Prof. Amit Banerjee, Vice-Chancellor of the SOA (Deemed to be University). Prof. Renu Sharma, Head of the department of Electrical Engineering at the Institute of Technical Education and Research (ITER), was present.

Prof. Amal Kanti Paul, retired professor of Kolkata University and Dr. Kaushik Pal, Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT, Roorkee are attending the fair as mentors.The mentorship camp is being held under the Initiative for Research and Innovation (IRIS) National Science Fair—a public-private partnership program between the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Indo-US Science and Technology Forum (IUSSTF) and Intel. The program included presentations by the different teams, mentorship sessions, interactive workshops and campus tour.
