The annual TechSoc Manual Robotics competition was held on 5th October at SAC. The event began at 5.30 pm and went on through the evening. This year’s task was to make a ‘Gold Miner’. Due to the obvious unavailability of gold, Cosco tennis balls were used instead. Two teams were pitted against each other in a race to collect a maximum number of balls in the stipulated time of five minutes.
No planet in the solar system has captured public imagination like the red planet, with more than 100,000 people signing up for a one-way trip to Mars when applications opened this year. Mars was the topic of the evening when Dr. Anita Sengupta delivered her speech at the Media Resource Centre in the Central Library at 5.30 pm on Tuesday, 20th of August.
