IN A thrilling event 15 teams of students participated at the Tech-cetera.
All the participants were asked to dismantle the cycles and reassemble them within the given fixed time. Strange enough, out of 15 teams a girl team also participated at the competition. The result of the contest would be declared on February 25. The teams were from MMNIT Allahabad, Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, Kumaon Engineering College Kumaon, MANIT Bhopal Uttarkashi Pune Raipur and JIIT Noida. In the late evening, the teams also participated at the paper plane-making contest.

Electricity-powered spacecraft

FIVE STUDENTS of MNNIT, Allahabad, displayed a model of future spacecraft, which did not require diesel or petrol for fuel.

Students including Vidya Ratan, Vivek Kumar, Ravindra Kumar and Jitendra Kumar told the Hindustan Times that the spacecraft was powered by electricity and it can take off straight and land in a vertical direction effectively. The aircraft would be noise-free, smoke-free and be eco-friendly. The developers said at present, the aircraft required 20,000 volts for taking off but research was on the anvil to reduce the voltage demand. They said the aircraft would prove to be the safest and the smoothest means of travelling.
