The 2012 event was successfully accomplished with the enthusiastic support of – the President, Principal, Faculty, Staff and Students of Cauvery College; combined with the experienced collaborators of 2011 – Faculty and Students of the Department of Physics, FMKMC.
About 18-20 schools (totaling 280 students including junior and senior categories) participated.
As in 2011, enthusiastic participation and wonderful teamwork (in particular, in model building and quiz competitions) was visible in this year’s event. Several students expressed a keen interest in returning to the next STEM^2 Fair event. A few model designs were surprisingly intricate. When asked if they were ready for “real inventions”, the response was a confident ‘YES’.

The ‘Quiz-Masters’ were a lively team, of dedicated young men and women studying Engineering/B.Sc. These enthusiastic students came a long way – from Chennai, Mangalore, Bangalore and Mysore.
