The students of ALM Matriculation Higher Secondary School, East Coast Road, celebrated their project day on Tuesday, giving the year on a fun-filled beginning. More than 50 projects were displayed by the students from LKG to Class 12.

While the tiny tots stuck to basic themes such as storytelling and highlighted the significance of good habits, the senior classes dabbled in an array of projects on diverse subjects, including water pollution, the laws of gravity, functions of the heart and the beauty of geometrical patterns. With diverse themes for each subject, including math, physics,  botany, zoology and commerce, the students exhibited their flair for explaining in detail the working of theoretical concepts.

As part of the social studies project, they brought out a blue print for disaster management and threw light on the different facets of rural life.

The highlight of the exhibition was a mini planetarium show sponsored by the Birla Planetarium at the school premises. The youngsters got an opportunity to gaze at the night sky as the projector flashed the dazzling display on the screen, explore the planetary system and learn about the innate properties of the Milky Way.

The exhibition came to an exciting conclusion with K Vinodhini, the cultural coordinator of Ayappa Matriculation School, Shollinganallur, also the judge for the event, announcing the best projects from each class.
