    • Venue: Physics Department.

    As quoted by Edward teller, “The science of today is the technology of tomorrow”. A Science Exhibition is imperative for the holistic development of a student so that they are being imparted education with a pragmatic approach and not just with the purpose of making them mug up the curriculum.

    With this in mind, on the 16th of March 2018, Eureka club of Physics department had organized a science project exhibition for 1st year BE students. 27 enthusiastic teams (with around 80 participants) took part in this exhibition.

    The exhibition was inaugurated by the Principal, Dr. C. P. S. Prakash, Vice principal Dr. Ramesh Babu D. R. along with HOD Physics, Dr. C. M. Joseph. Exhibition was inaugurated after going through the collages of last year science exhibition and photography contest photos.

    The day progressed as the young innovators explained their exhibits to judges and to other visitors. Exhibits ranged from drones to various models using the Arduino boards. Projects like clap switch, RC drone, Line follower, home automation, Tesla coil, Bab cow boiler, Leg wheel humanoid robot, wind mill, LIGO, fire extinguisher, people counter, wireless charger, hydraulic robotic arm etc were exhibited.The Science Exhibition was judged by Dr. Roopa and Ms. Shahala, Professors, Electronics and Communications Engineering department of DSCE.

    Through this, the scientific temper among students could be developed and fostering them to become better scientists and technologists as well as better citizens capable of governing their personal thoughts and actions in a scientific manner. This science exhibition had showcased the curiosity, creativity and scientific aptitude of the students.

    This science project exhibition was co-ordinated by Mrs. Aruna P, Asst. Professor, Physics department along with Eureka club members.

    • Date: 7 October 2017.
    • Program: Hands on training on Arduino by Scintillating Ideas Innovation Lab.
    • Venue: SI Lab, Department of Engineering Physics.

    On 7th October 2017, SI lab of physics department organized a one day workshop on “Basics of Arduino”. Objective of the event was to give introduction to Arduino and demo of Arduino projects, project ideas and further opportunities in R & D. Around 60 students from 1st year took part in this workshop and the main focus of the workshop was to do hands on practical with Arduino Uno board.

    Arduino is an open source used by developers and hobbyist for creating projects and prototypes. Arduino boards can read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. Arduino has vast collection of supporting libraries developed by open source users across the world. Learning this platform might help students in rapid prototype development their project. Keeping these facts in mind content of workshop was designed and delivered. The workshop was held by three senior students, Mr. Deepu, Mr. Sanath and Mr. Prajwal. They displayed and shared their project details Arduino for the participants of the workshop. Workshop was initiated with a brief talk by Dr.C.M.Joseph, HOD Physics on Arduino and Microcontrollers in general and their importance in day to day life.

    This workshop was formally inaugurated by Principal Dr. C. P. S. Prakash and Vice principal Dr. D. R. Ramesh Babu and made a visit to the workshop. The workshop had two sessions, in the first session, basics of C programming like adding 2 numbers, printing a message, scanning a message along with if condition loops were spoken about. Topics in basic electronics like Current and Voltage divider rule, how an LED works, how a servo motor works, working of light dependant resistors, how integrated circuits function, Arduino sensor modules and working of magnetic Relay were also covered. In the second session, experiments like LED blink, LED on and off through PC, LED fading using potentiometers, LED fading using code, Light intensity sensitive Motor control using Google Speech-to-text to activate arduino pins, using Bluetooth to control the lights via a relay, How to add a timer to the lights etc were discussed and demonstrated.

    Students learnt the basics of working with Arduino and gained basic knowledge of various Arduino development boards; Programming environment; onboard features of Arduino Uno.

    Student Feedback was collected and it suggested that they welcomed this initiative and they were motivated to explore a more dimension in this platform and also they were willing to use this board in their projects in future. These hands on training sessions were co-ordinated by Mrs. Aruna P, Asst Prof in Physics department, under the guidance of Dr. C. M. Joseph, HOD physics department.
