Mr. Varun Makhija of first sem B.E computer science branch attended AIESEC RYLC 2017 national conference. RYLC is the acronym for Regional Youth Leadership Conference. RYLC is the conference held for new AIESEC recruits who are recruited in the month of August, each year. But this year (2017) was special. It had been 10 years since Bangalore had hosted an RYLC, and because of the constant efforts of the Bangalore Local Committee President Nakul S Jayatsen, a dream had come true. A dream of bringing different states together under one roof in the comfort of our beautiful home-city.
Since RYLC is a conference for South and West India, there were AIESECers from various Local Committees including Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Vizag, Suratkal, Mysore, etc. The diversity in a single room was just spectacular! And although there were people who came from different parts of India, there was uniformity in diversity. Uniformity because everyone present there came for the same thing, to develop themselves, and learn more about the functioning of the amazing organization they had recently become a part of, namely AIESEC.

4.NexTech v2.0 on 28th April 2018
NexTech v2.0, the BSH clubs’ second version of the all-department science expo, was held on the 28th of April, 2018. The event started at 11:00 A.M. The Principal, Dean of Academics and Dean of Student Affairs also graced us with their presence and we’re impressed with innovative models presented by the students.
Criteria for judging the projects were Presentation and Practicality/Functionality of the project. Notable projects at the expo included a solar power inverter, motion sensor , etc.
Innovation skills and work ethics of the students were highlighted as the judges found it harder and harder to judge the projects on display. The event was concluded at 1:30. The event turned out to receive quite a lot of applaud from the NHCE faculty and we saw a lot of happy and satisfied faces leave the event.
The brightest star in the firmament of science, whose insights shaped modern cosmology and inspired global audiences in the millions. Sir Stephen Hawking died at the age of 76.He was known for his theories on black holes and relativity and went on to publish several popular science books including A Brief History of Time.
On the same note, to commemorate Sir Stephen Hawking’s work, The Department of Basic Science andHumanities decided to hold a mourning space whereall of Hawking’s work was presented along with his achievements with some insight on his early life and the problems he began to face with the onset of ALS. A brief talk was given by the club members to further elaborate into his works and how it went onto influence the world of modern cosmology.
All the teaching faculty along with the respective Head of Departments were present to pay their tributes to Sir Stephen Hawking and held a 2 minute silence period for the same. By this we hope to continue to keep him in our minds forever.
The annual Open Day, organised by Indian Institute of Science (IISc), saw thousands of visitors on its otherwise quiet campus on Saturday. The event, which takes place every year, commemorates the birth anniversary of JN Tata, founder of the institute.
All the club members of the Genesis club and Math Horizon club along with a few other enthusiastic students from different classes of the BSH Department were taken to IISC.
The campus was huge with an abundance of greenery and buildings with a beautiful rustic look.
We were allowed to rent cycles to travel to different parts of the campus, although many people preferred walking and enjoying the natural beauty of the campus.
There were several marvelous demonstrations related to modern science and technology exhibited by different departments.
A few departments that we visited were:
- Dept of Organic Chemistry
- Dept of Inorganic Chemistry
- Dept of Mathematics
- Dept of Pure and Applied Physics
- Dept of Aerospace Engineering
- Dept of Computer Science and Engineering
- Dept of Mechanical Engineering
This field trip helped students to learn a few new things in a fun and practical way, it helped us realize that science is not really about the equations or formulae in the books but about what we can create using everything we know about it.
7.National Science Day 2018
Celebrated on : 07.03.18
That moment was filled with joy and warmth. That very moment is a moment that will be taken along by us in this race of life. As we enter the gates nostalgia hit us all. The difference was, we had proper and to the day facilities whereas they were not that privileged. The smiles on their faces, their welcoming and humble nature took my heart for a toss. We started off by introducing our college and all the amazing facilities it provides for any one aiming for higher education. That was continued by a small introductory speech on national science day and the person behind it , Cv Raman.
Our members were prepared to demonstrate a few experiments of chemistry and physics. The children were engaged in the entire session. We had prepared questions for them from their syllabus which was answered by them in a very diplomatic way keeping discipline in their behaviour.
Quiz was followed by lunch which is offered to them every day. We too were allowed to enjoy the lunch amidst them. The teachers and students experienced taste in an all new twist. Right after lunch we spoke about the math models made for them by our students. They seemed to love it and also actively participated in that session.
The models were given to them by our teachers and students at the end of all the explanation. This day came to end by a video presentation which caught their attention.
The children on a whole are such blessings. They taught all of us something by just their actions! They managed to steal our hearts and 07.03.18 will be a date that will definitely be cherished throughout our life.
A huge shoutout to the principal and the basic science and humanities department for providing us with such a memorable experience and opportunity. Thanking all the teachers and students who were involved in this and who made this event a success.
8.Aarambh - 28.02.18
Aarambh was an inter class competition organized by the BSH department 28th February,2018. A total of 18 sections participated in the competition, each section a total of four people participated to represent their class. There were a total of four rounds held.
Round 1 was a quiz round which in turn had three rounds and each round one class got eliminated from chemistry and physics cycle.
12 teams qualified to the next round.
Round 2 was 4 pics one word, where the students had to figure out the word based on the four pictures. 6 teams qualified to the next round. At the end on round 2 , each team was given a topic and given 2 hours to prepare for the next round.
Round 3 was crisis solution where the students had to present the solution for the crisis given to them at the end of the second round.
3 teams qualified to the next round.
Last round was Pictionary, where each team was given a word and they had to guess it by just drawing out the word. Section ‘A’ won first place followed by Section ‘G’ in the second place and Section ‘E’ in the third and made their classes proud.
The event was an overall success and we hope to hold many more competitive events in the future.
Having organized a couple of co-curricular events, the BSH clubs decided to change things up a bit recently. Instead of focusing on the principle idealogies of the clubs, the members decided to focus on the students. On 24th January, 2018 the BSH clubs hosted a Talent Show in the college Auditorium, where anyone and everyone in the BSH Department was given a stage of 2 minutes, if they desired so. A huge success, the event helped recognize the immense pool of talent available in the college, even as first years. There were rappers, singers, dancers, beat-boxers, stand-up comedians etc. The students enjoyed the change from co-curricular to extra curricular activities as it helped break the monotony of everyday college life.
10.WIZ-X - 03.11.17
Organizing clubs were Math Horizon and Genesis.
The event comprised of 4 rounds (Quiz, Jumbled Words, Debare and JAM), of which the first two rounds were heavily based on group effort, while the last two rounds were based on individual effort. As groups/individuals progress through the rounds, a certain number of groups/individuals were to be laid off after every round until there were only 15 individuals left in the final round, for JAM. All finalists would be awarded 50 marks for co-curricular assessment, and the best 3 would win prizes as well. At least that was the plan. But I guess you can never truly stick to thw plan.
As the day began, we at the BSH clubs, saw participation of students which exceeded our expectations greatly. While we expected only about 60 students to turn up for the event, we saw students in numbers that exceeded 90. Because of this, as organizers we learnt crisis management as we had to arrange for an extra classroom to hold the event for the excess participants.
The first round was Quiz, which has 4 separate rounds in itself, which were the general question round, the logo round, the MCQ round and the Guess what? (Identify the picture) round. Participants were made to rack their brains as the Quiz included questions like mulitplication of a 3×3*matrix, Identify the logo of ISRO, identify a picture Stephen Hawking and what principle does an aircraft fly on? Participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the Quiz and were eager to move on to the next round. Unfortunately, we had to lay off about 30 individuals at the end of this round. The remaining participants moved on to the next round, that is, Jumbled Words.
In the second round each team was given a sheet of 15 Jumbled Words, and a time limit of 20 minutes to complete the same. The Jumbled Words included answers from the Quiz round, and also included general Science Words, like Bernoulli, Homo Sapiens, Semiconductor etc. Again, we had to lay off about 25 teams as opposed to the 30 teams we had planned to lay off, because everyone was doing so well!! That’s when we also decided, that we would select 20 participants for the final round as opposed to the original 15. We couldn’t refuse the talent that each one brought to the event!
We took a break for lunch before the third round of Wiz-X, right after giving the participants their topics for the Debate. Topics included Electric Cars vs. Conventional Cars, Driverless Cars: Good or Bad, Apple vs. Android, Nuclear Energy: Good or Bad. Participants surprised us with the amount of research they put in over just an hour, and spoke really well. Our Judge for the event, Mrs. Padma N. had a hard time shortlisting the final 20 participants as all of them performed very well!
The final round, JAM, began as soon as the debate ended and the judges for the event were Mr. Gangadhar Murthy and again, Mrs. Padma N. The final round was quite interesting as everyone had different insights on the topics given to them like Moon: The Natural Satellite, Animal Testing, Space Colonization, Global Warming etc.
The event Wiz-X concluded with 4 winners as opposed to the planned 3. The event turned out to be a huge success because of the massive attendance and the quality that each one brought along. Cheers to a great start for the BSH clubs!!
11.Expert talk-Biomaterials 30.10.17
The seminar began with a slideshow presentation and students were questioned about various prospects in which biomaterials were used. The question in everyone’s mind as to why engineering students should learn about biomaterials and why attending this seminar would be fruitful was put to ease by three simple reasons.
- Biomaterial is part of our curriculum so attending the seminar would serve a good purpose in our understanding of the topic.
- Biomaterial research is an interdisciplinary field involving various scientists from all fields, so basic knowledge about it would be helpful.
- By 2019 Japan, India, China, Taiwan would be few of the country’s leading the market share. The market would be worth an approximate 66 thousand million US dollars.
We were shocked as to see how versatile these materials are and how many applications it had- artificial hips, hearts, lenses, pace makers, rods, bone plates, screws etc.
He then spoke about the most important topic, the classification of Biomaterials. It could be classified into 4 major parts which further could be classified to more sub-parts. This topic alone showed us that Biomaterials isn’t something to be taken for granted as it’s so widespread it has its uses in almost every major field.
We were then informed about a new and upcoming important field called Tissue engineering which is used for making artificial organs using stem cells. This was extremely important as if enough research and money were to be put into this field and more students get into this field, it could potentially save millions of lives.
With this we came to the end of the seminar.
A vote of thanks and a sapling was presented to Mr Alex by our Physics Department HOD, DR. Revathi, for taking his time out his busy schedule and being with us here today.
From this seminar we learnt about why Biomaterials is important and how it plays an important role in our day to day lives.
In conclusion I felt the two hours spent in the seminar was really worthwhile as it opened our minds to new prospects and made us more curious about science in general, which is a really good thing for engineers as a whole cause only when we are curious about something we tend to change the world.
