On 13th April, 36 students of The Indian School had the privilege to visit the Festival of Innovations and Entrepreneurship (FINE) 2023 held by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt of India, and the National Innovation Foundation (NIF) – India, under the aegis of Rashtrapati Bhavan. The objective of this festival is to uplift and inspire young innovative minds in India.

The exhibition showcased innovations from grassroot innovators and students, representing the length and breadth of the country. Schools from across Delhi NCR were invited to witness the exhibition of innovations.

During the event, participants showcased their innovative products, technologies, and services in different zones including agriculture, healthcare, education, and energy. The main theme of the event was to showcase innovation and entrepreneurship in various fields and to encourage more people to pursue these areas. The exhibition area featured impressive innovative products like the cup hanger making machine, pineapple peeling cum shredding machine, Shola wood sheet making machine, shoe cum slipper, walnut peeling machine, innovative handloom, bed with integrated chair, dual thermos flask, and mobility aid for disabled. The most astonishing fact was that these products were mostly invented by assembling simple and cost-effective parts.

The students had an insightful experience and were highly motivated to ‘think out of the box’. They gathered enough ideas and concepts to work on their own projects in the future. The agriculture zone impressed the group the most. Here they, learned about innovative farming techniques and technologies such as vertical farming and hydroponics. They also visited the healthcare zone, where they saw amazing medical devices and technologies that can save lives. One of the most inspiring innovations was in the field of the handloom sector, where an entrepreneur made an innovative handloom that worked with less manpower and created fine handlooms, even as he generated electricity.

Overall, FINE 2023 was an amazing experience for the students, where they learned a lot about innovation and entrepreneurship. Events like FINE are critical to fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in our society and encouraging more people to explore these areas.
