AXIS 2012 - V.N.I.T’s Technical Extravaganza to be organised this weekend
Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (formerly V.R.C.E), is celebrating its technical festival – AXIS from 21st to 23rd of this month in the VNIT campus. Aimed at showcasing the technical prowess of VNIT, AXIS 2012 has lined up a cornucopia of events, workshops, exhibitions, pro-shows and competitions from the fields of Automation & Robotics, Construction, Design & Safety, Software & Electronics and Management.
The events at AXIS are so designed that the participants are required to be at their innovative best in order to emerge victorious. Fabricating a race-car working on a miniature IC engine, designing and constructing a bridge capable of withstanding upto 220 kilos from mere ice cream sticks, building a robot which functions as if it has a mind of its own, possessing just the right perception of a mystry solver to decipher puzzling encryptions – these are just some of the happenings at AXIS.
With many of its online events underway and the workshops on ‘Ethical Hacking’ and ‘Microcontroller Programming’ already a huge success, the major attractions in this year’s edition are the exhibitions and pro-shows by various organisations in the institute premises itself. Firstly the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF), the response wing of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), will be setting up various stalls encompassing themes of Basics of Survival, Collapsed Structure Search & Rescue, Flood Water Rescue, Radiological & Nuclear Emergencies, and Medical First Response, with the purpose of enlightening the layman about the essential know-how of hazard mitigation. The Jawans from the 5th battalion of the NDRF will in fact be presenting a live pro-show on Chemical Emergency Rescue, High-Rise Building Rescue and River Crossing.
Secondly, E-Planetarium - an authorized distributor of portable domes, shows, projectors, and software from many of the finest producers in the world, will be presenting full-dome digital planetarium shows throughout the weekend. These shows are truly immersive because they present the viewer with images, in front, behind, above and on both sides of their seat. Apart from being novel, these shows are a great vehicle to teach about Earth and Space science.
The vintage German automobile manufacturer BMW, an official sponsor for AXIS is also holding an exhibition displaying some of its iconic vehicles. With other pro-shows such as Airshow, Advanced Humanoid and other Robo-shows being organised, AXIS 2012 promises to enthral a wide spectrum of people.
Even for those not gifted with scientific dexterity, AXIS 2012 has in store many informal events, a mock stock exchange where even the biggest loser is rewarded, hard-core gaming competitions, Robo-Wars and much more. The lush green campus of VNIT, abound with enthusiastic and ignited minds, is indeed the place-to-be this weekend.
Participation Certificates will be given to all participants
