Sourabh Siyal and Tushar Agarwal, students of Christ College,
designed a model which would pester people to take interest in
Eco-wash, a washing machine was made
out of junk material and ran on mechanical and kinetic energy,
without the use of electricity.
"The junk materials include a discarded plastic bottle, which we
used as a box to wash clothes. A pulley is attached to the plastic
bottle to run the machine", explained Agarwal, who wants to be a
"The pulley moves with the help of
kinetic energy and helps to wash clothes," he added.
"Our idea is to do away with electricity and come up with an
alternative. The washing machine can be useful in big textile
industries. We're planning to give our idea to one of India's
leading garment manufacturing units," said Siyal, who too wanted
to pursue research works in the field of science.
In another such example of innovation, four students of Outreach
school, under the guidance of their Physics teacher developed an
"The earthquake predictor is nothing
but a borewell. The borewell is attached to a buzzer. The buzzer
makes sound if the underground water level increases, which means
that the movement of lava in the underground is moving at a faster
rate, an indication of the likelihood of an earthquake", said
Subramanian K, a student.
The fast movement of lava will force
the water level to increase, which in turn will make the buzzer
give out signals," he added.
