On December 31, 2011, CREATE Gurukula and the FMKMC College of Madikeri will hold the First CREATE STEM2 Fair focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine.

We will have three contests, all held at the FMKMC College, Madikeri, open to Middle-school and High-school students, especially in Coorg. (Due to the limited resources available for some of the contests, entries may be limited.) The contests are:

  1. Essay Writing: select from a set of subjects announced in the morning and turn in a two-page essay by afternoon. Topics will cover science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicinal issues. Entries will be judged based on clarity of thought, argumentation, and sourcing. Any and all references available may be used during the writing but nobody else may assist.
  2. Quiz: Teams of students will be given a series of questions to answer. There will be a written quiz as well as an oral quiz in front of an audience, including some questions that may require use of a blackboard. Answers will be judged for correctness and for showing the relevant work.
  3. Model Construction: Teams of students will use available materials to construct models. Materials appropriate to construct a specified object will be provided by the organizers. The teams will construct the objects on site without outside assistance. The models will be judged based on build quality, efficiency, and stability.

There is no entry fee. Prizes will be awarded to first and second place finishers, and to third place finishers as applicable, at the middle-school and high-school levels.
