OUR VISION-Inspiring their Aspirations
As the students of today and the engineers of tomorrow, we considered it our duty to propagate the thread of vision-to enlighten the school students as to what a true engineer is and to give them a glimpse of the engineering career.
1. Models Girls High school, Pattom
A group of five students of 3rd semester went to provide a general awareness programme about engineering for the students of HSS Model girls school, Pattom.The programme had been intended for the 11thand 12th graders. It was a 5 hour programme and was filled with fun activities. It was conducted in two sessions:
The first session comprised on briefing the students about the options available in the field. After the briefing students were given a platform to clear all their doubts regarding what was told as well as their personal queries.It was surely an enlightening session for them as well as for us.
The students were divided into six groups. Each group was asked to market an item. The team with best marketing skills bagged the prize.After the sessions one of the
students thanked us for the Informative session on behalf of all the students.

A group of 6 students went to Government high school, Chavadimukku to give a General awareness talk on the latest technologies and its influence on High school students. Initially a group discussion was conducted where the students expressed their opinion on the topic. Each student was given time to express what they felt about the effect of these technologies in our daily life. Later they were divided into 2 groups and they debated on the advantages and disadvantages of using a mobile phone .The session was very interesting and interacting without compromising on the information aspect.
BENEFITS TO MEMBERS AND PARTICIPANTS
As leaders of tomorrow it was our obligation to the society to inspire the young minds of the various possibilities that the world holds for them. This was indeed a rare opportunity that we as students got to make our small contribution. It was thus a learning experience for both the parties alike.
