The aim of the event is to poke your curiosity in science and technology through various exhibits and demonstrations. IISc Exhibitions is a unique initiative to bring out the hidden scientists in all of us. Candidates are invited to present working exhibits, and/or simulations to solve a novel/real world problem through holistic approach.


Structure of the event

  • Participants will be required to present their exhibits in a live online session on 20th or the 21st August, where they would have to explain the working and how their model solves a novel/real world problem.
  • The top 5 teams would be selected, based on, but not limited to, their idea, innovation and presentation.

Curious about the background video?

The spooky pattern that appears on the screen is when someone fires electrons through two slits separated slightly. First demonstrated by Thomas Young, it is one of the fundamental examples of quantum theory. The pattern would not appear if you throw billiard balls through two holes. This suggests electrons do not act like classical particles, a great clue to leap into the quantum realm.For more information on Double Slit pattern, visit this resource by MIT
