Competition/Workshop for Students of Grade 9-12

Step Up Your Potential !!!


We, the faculty & Lab Instructor’s of the EEE department are excited on a successful hosting of the national competition for school children – “Step Up Your Potential”, which saw students from grades 9th to 12th from various schools around UAE participate and showcase their potential on an extremely high level. The competition was held on March 17, 2022 in the BITS Dubai auditorium with an introductory note by the EEE department HOD, Dr. Jagadish Nayak. Our Director, Prof. Srinivasan Madapusi graced the occasion with his presence and gave a few words of motivation and encouragement to the young budding future engineers. The event was organized & convened by Dr. R Swarnalatha. Ms Nahid Afshan & team from the Admission department facilitated a smooth link between the school groups to get them to participate in the event.

There were 15 teams total, representing 14 different Schools. There were 3 to 4 pupils on each squad. The student teams showed tremendous zeal and hunger to win as they presented their project and ideas before the judges and panelists within the 15 mins time slots given to each team.  After their presentations, the judges went on to have a closer look at their project models and ask mind tingling questions to the teams to better understand the aim and working of their projects.

Refreshments and lunch were organized. The school students were taken on a campus tour showcasing our well-equipped labs and facilities. The admission department also had a presentation shedding light on what the future holds for them as young engineers at BITS Dubai.

As the day came to an end, the teams that showed the most potential were:

1st place       INNOVA 3         Delhi Private School, Sharjah        Prize of AED 2500

2nd place       HAZE             Global Indian School, Ajman         Prize of AED 1500

3rd place       AUTOMATOS The Indian High School, Dubai  Prize of AED 1000

No team left empty handed as every student was given a memento of participation and a certificate to recognize their efforts and perseverance. 

A vote of thanks was presented by Dr. R Swarnalatha.
