An unique science exhibition is the main attraction of this year’s Imprints where over 70 science models will be displayed, said Imprints Student Coordinator Solomon Simon who further added that science exhibition has always been a trend in Imprints and this year the participating teams are also supposed to compulsorily bring a science model and participate in the event ‘Medley of Models’. Various schools have been given invites to have a practical exposure to science by visiting the fest.
“We wanted to have a blend of social world along with the science world hence we tried to incorporate the social networking concept to the fest and themed it as the ‘The Science Network,” said Solomon.
Imprints is also a national-level fest and about 13 colleges are expected to participate, he revealed and added the fest has general events as well as some concentrating on a particular stream such as ‘Research Gate,’ a physical science event, ‘Life Knot’ dealing with Biology and ‘Techyyz Showdon’ which is based on Computer Science.
Imprints will be held on February 3 and 4 along with the Commerce annual festival ‘Acme’.
The Commerce fest ‘Acme’ is geared up to set the stage on fire with their theme ‘The Legends of Rock’. “The unique thing about this year’s Acme is it tries to bring out the business of the music Industry,” says Student Coordinator Stefi Pinto.
The fest has seven events and each of it is named after a song, she adds. When the Human Resource event is named ‘Sultans of Swing,’ the Marketing is called ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
‘The Longest Day’ is ‘the’ event of Acme, stressed Stefi who adds that the rules are top secret but the participant can expect shocks and a lot of twists and turns. ‘Master of Puppets’ (Corporate Survivor) is a prestigious title which hunts for the ‘Best CEO’ from the participating teams, she said.
‘Wall Street Shuffle’ (Mock Stock) is a unique event where the students have to exactly work the way a stock market works.
The event also has specially designed software’s and the participants have to take quick decisions in buying and selling stocks, says Acme Student Coordinator Rahail Patel and adds that over 11 colleges will be participating in the fest.
