A Himachal Pradesh student has created a bullet train model that has been selected for a national-level exhibition, a school official said on Friday.

Shilpa, a class 10 student in Government Senior Secondary School at Sudhial near Nadaun in Hamirpur district, has prepared the bullet train model that is based on the magnetic repulsion effect of similar poles of magnets.

The model, declared the best in the state-level science exhibition, will now be displayed at the national-level Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE) exhibition to be held in New Delhi Oct 6-8, school principal Om Prakash said.

"The model is based on my innovative ideas. Now I am focusing to further improve it technically," said Shilpa.

INSPIRE is a programme of the department of science and technology of the union government to sharpen young minds in science.
