Around 1000 students from over 10 schools visited the Techno Blizz, an Open house and Science and Technology exhibition at the Department of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering (EIE) at Tech Park in SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur Campus.
A total of around 14 labs were set up with various kinds of instruments, prototypes, and equipment to help students understand the intricacies of Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering. A few of these displays were developed by the students and faculty of the EIE Department.
This Techno Blizz was done in collaboration with Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam. A team of scientists and engineers from the Nuclear Research Centre displayed scientific models and explained to students the basic functioning of the center. Apart from students, a few industry-related professionals and researches also visited the exhibition.
