3 months of rigorous preparation by the team for the exhibition, resulted in some very interesting exhibits ; to name a few - the water cycle dance, impersonation of great scientists, skit show on 'scientific method', release of hot air balloons, science magic show, 25 exciting science models prepared by these students were a big hit.
