“Inspiring ideas from inspiring students,” said Venkatesh sir, who was one of the judges of the event.

This event was aimed at developing quality of friendship between the students and also at increasing engineering skills in them. It was conducted on 30th of October and prize distribution was done on 1st November.  The students of each class presented their models in assembly.

Children of each section needed to make a tower using straws.  On the top of the tower a cup was to be held on a single straw through threads or tied on the tip of the tower 30 cm above the ground.  The purpose of cup being held on the top of the tower was to check how many 2 rupees coins it would hold before the tower collapsed.  Winner would be the section whose tower holds maximum number of 2 rupees coins.

Winners of the Bucket Challenge were as follows:

  • VI class – Kingfishers{ 176 coins }
  • VII class – Spaceships { 125 coins }
  • VIII class – Seagulls { 97 coins }
  • IX class – Newtons { 143 coins }

Actually the champions were Toucans with a total of 177 coins, but as there was a slight deviation from the rules and regulations set for the challenge, they were disqualified.

Venkatesh sir said, “I am very glad to know that 6th and 7th class students have performed well.  I hope the same performance from the higher classes.”  Swans section has prepared 9 models.  The judges of the challenge were Vanaja teacher, Madhavi teacher (Maths), Madhavi teacher (Arts and Craft), Srilatha teacher and Suresh sir.

The interesting aspect of the challenge was to balance the straws and to hold maximum number of 2 rupees coins.

There was tough competition between the sections of classes 6th and 7th, as a few classes lost the challenge just by 1 coin difference.  On the other hand, classes 8th and 9th winners won by a great majority.
