Creating a buzz with their inspiring ideas, the students of  CavinKare School of practical knowledge, Cuddalore, displayed a range of artwork and creative business units at Gambit, an exhibition of skills acquired through Life Oriented Education (LOE) and Business Module classes (BMC) hosted on the school premises on February 3.

More than 2,400 students showcased a stunning array of art, ranging from intricately designed cushion covers and Tanjore paintings to  captivating terracotta, mini-robots and vegetable carvings, shaped solely by the young artists.

Also on display were the lessons picked up by the budding entrepreneurs who put to test their management and advertising skills at the fun-filled event. The knowledge-packed industrial tours to drinking water plants, food processing units, as well as interaction with vegetable vendors, who capture the vagaries of the economy, had worked well to sow the seeds of innovation in them.

Once they understood the nuts and bolts of setting up a business venture, the students came up with innovative games, documentary film shows as well as — the crowd-favourite — attractive food stalls. From tangy bhel puri, hot and spicy egg noodles to crispy French fries, the visitors lapped up the culinary art served to them on their plate. And the budding chefs who conjured up the flavours of international cuisine for the local audience revelled in the weekly cookery classes that gave them the cutting edge.

Of course, the decorative candles and stunning zardosi work won the admiration of all the visitors.  

While the charged cultural performances entertained the audience, the science exhibits explaining the energy crisis, waste management and biogas underlined the need for stirring scientific endeavours. The powerful theme also had curious spectators lining up for insights on the miniature Koodankulam project, the highlight of the expo.
