Department of Physics, Kanya Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar is constantly working in thedirections of imparting science education through innovative teaching methodologies. P.G. Department of Physics inculcates scientific temperament among students and also supports them to showcase their innovative ideas at competitive level. Recently six students of Kanya Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar have participated in INNOVESTA 2021 organised by Dr. B.R Ambedkar National Institute of Technology in the online mode. Dr. Dipan Sahu, Asst. Innovation Director, MoE’s Innovation Cell, AICTE Government of India has graced the event as a chief guest of the event. This mega event witnessed huge participation of around 80 teams from various institutes of repute across the globe. Young innovators from different countries
like France, Austria, South Korea, Utah, Bangladesh, Nepal and India participated in the event. KMViets have also showcased their unique and innovative ideas in this event. Students have developed an automatic machine of hand sanitizer, touch less switches and have also constructed a project on stagnant waste water problem. To resolve the problems existing in the society, P.G. Department of Physics have motivated as well as supported students to develop these ideas. In the ongoing time of pandemic, students have realized the need of frequent sanitization. With this objective students have developed touchless hand sanitizing machine which will be installed in the entrance of their class rooms. Further a prototype of touchless switches and touchless attendance system has been developed with an objective that students while entering or leaving the class room can turn lights and fans ON/OFF without even touching switches and can get themselves sanitized too. Attendance of students will be
automatically marked by just passing across the switch. . Also during rainy season cities faces waste water stagnation problem, which leads to several accidents. Keeping this in mind, students have developed an automatic sensor system which will work on three different modes depending on level of stagnated water. Further the drained water will be stored and utilized for other purposes after treatment. Students have presented their work by giving powerpoint presentation as well as demonstrating their work. Judges of the event were very impressed by the work of students and have even encouraged them to get these ideas patent. Cash prize of Rs. 1000/ was awarded to our students.
