Report by Rashmi r Parida, New Delhi: Pidilite Ind, one of the leading companies in consumer and specialty chemicals, under the aegis of its Arts, Stationery and Fabrics division, announced the Fevicol Science Project Challenge 2013. 

Fevicol Science Project is an annual nationwide competition that identifies the talent from across the schools in the country. It encourages budding young talented children and gives them a great kick start to pursue their interest further. The participation is now open and students from standards 5 to 10 across the schools from India can send their entries. The competition is divided in Junior, 5th - 7th standard and Senior, 8th - 10th standard categories. Schools interested in registering can visit pidilitecreativeminds.com.

Fevicol Science project Challenge is a quest to nurture the next generation of scientists and thinkers. This contest encourages students to think about topics that are related to their everyday life, futuristic concepts and make 3-D models of their interpretations of the subject/topic. The 3-D modeling is to promote the “Learning by doing” attitude so that the young minds understand the theory as well as the actual working of the concepts. Therefore, this contest provides the students an opportunity to challenge their own creativity and convert class room learning into workable concepts and models.

Mr. Rahul Sinha, President - Sales & Marketing - Arts, Stationery and Fabrics division, Pidilite Industries Limited, Mumbai, said “Projects and models make a subject like Science fun and creative, and Fevicol has been associated with such projects for a long time now.  Fevicol Science Project Challenge was launched in year 2011, as an honest endeavour to promote young scientists to think and innovate. Through Science project challenge we want students to Dream, Imagine, Observe and Create. We hope that maximum students participate and showcase their talent. We wish all the kids a rich and fun-filled learning experience.”

Fevicol Science Project Challenge 2012 saw great participation from all over India. There were about 185000 students who participated from about 750 schools and about 67000 projects were made. This year the challenge will begin in October 2013. The first round will require students to write a 500-word concept note on the given topic which will be judged in the school itself by the Science teachers. The selected students then have to make a 3-D model on the topic chosen in the team of 3, which will be exhibited. On the exhibition day, all the 3-D models will be displayed by the students and they will need to explain the concept to the science teacher and principal who will then choose two winners, one each from standard 5 to 7 and standard 8 to 10 from the school. Schools will then upload the pictures of the winning projects on the company website along with a brief on chosen topic, principles and working of the 3D model. Further, these projects will be reviewed by expert panel that chose 4 projects each from junior and senior categories. 

These chosen teams will be invited to Mumbai for a Grand Finale where they will be given impromptu topics to create the project over the next 2 days. The projects are judged by eminent judges appointed by Pidilite Industries Ltd. The winners will be awarded an all-expenses paid trip to a foreign destination apart from other exciting gifts. All the participants of the final round also receive exciting gifts.
