A World in Motion is an international event organized by SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) which aims to promote effective learning and understanding of science among young students.
The competition is supported by Maruti Udyog Limited. Our young engineers (as they were termed for this competition) of standard 6 had participated in this event. They had formed a group of 4 and each engineer was responsible for certain role. The task for them was to create a balloon – powered car under the able guidance of industrial volunteers.
The students were exposed to various concepts and laws from Physics as they were preparing for this competition. They also learnt the practical application of these laws.
This is a competition which helps our students apply what they learn in school, while also dealing with practical difficulties. They understand that good design on paper is important, than just implementation. These are skills which help them not only in science, but for any other vertical they may pursue later on.
