CHENNAI: The Science Day programme conducted by KRM Public School in Perambur was special in two ways. One, it went a step ahead of the usual science exhibitions in the city by exhibiting more than seven android applications made by students of classes six and seven. Two, the exhibits were seen by none other than the rocketman of India and former President A P J Abdul Kalam. A total of four schools participated in the exhibition which had a total of 18 exhibits including those ranging from electric candles to autonomous plant water system for gardens. Abdul Kalam addressed the gathering of more than 2,500 students from KRM group of schools and a few from Corporation schools in the area. He asked the students to keep striving for innovation in life. Kalam said, “If you want to become innovators, you must fight the hardest battle that any human being can ever imagine to fight.”

Kalam said that students must keep true to their goal even in the face of adversity and the goal should be to carve a niche for themselves and not impersonate someone else. “You must never stop until you arrive at your destined place, which is ‘unique’ you,” he added.

The event was also attended by the chairman of KRM group of schools R Janardhanan and CEO of KRM Group R J Thayumanaswamy.
