Out of the many exciting events that celebrate various academic fields, the broadest spectrum of competitions and performances are offered by the events in the science realm. March 20 was the Day one of “Scitron 2k18″— the annual fest organized by collaborative effort of the scientific departments of Panjab University.
The event itself was on a commendably large scale and had various competitions taking place at the same time. At the same time, cutting edge efficiency made sure that the various sub events were carried out on time. The event organizers Gaurav, vice president of NSUI, Karanvir and Nishant presided over the function. The attendance on the first day of the fest surpassed 3,000 students from different departments of Panjab University as well as different colleges in Chandigarh. Attending students participated in more than 38 different contests and competitions. The high enthusiasm and zeal was visible in eager students across the campus. Amongst the multiple winner, many returned home with lessons to win next year, new friends and happy memories. The highlight events were the declamation at Gandhi Bhawan, ‘sell your idea’ at the Law auditorium and group dances.
Other popular events included AD Mad (an event where a small team must prepare an advertisement for a product) and classic events such as just a minute, Rangoli with a scientific twist. In a quirky contrast we saw evergreen games such as musical chairs and dumb charades along with computer and internet based gaming with Mini militia and similar. The campus was also abuzz with photographers hoping to take home the prize in the photography competition. From simple but high energy events like tug of war and bottoms up, to the creative events such as tee design and graffiti, the event offered amazing choices and were a must for students from every domain.
The head of the events said, “We want to take Scitron 2018 to a level where it would be a brand among events in Chandigarh. We have constantly strived over the years to include diverse events so that students from all over the city can participate and make it a grand success.”
The show on first day concluded on a high note as students walked on the ramp with full enthusiasm for fashion show. The cultural night exhibited beautiful performances by various students. The other cultural performances stole the show with their top notch vigor and enthusiasm.
In a nutshell, Day one was a bouquet of various colorful competitions, events and performances, leaving high expectations and higher anticipation for day two.
