The Star college scheme has also redesigned the laboratory practicals to meet the standard of the fast-paced world. The Star awards also motivated me to learn more things and aim higher.” Avinash III B.Sc. (PCM) said “The star student award that I earned today helped me to earn something beneficial from the ocean full of knowledge. Even though the scheme is from the Department of Biotechnology, it has also rendered its support to various departments in conducting workshops like Physics of Toys, Endowment lectures by C.N.R.Rao, Prof. Kasthurirangan, etc. These Endowment lectures inspired many of us to put forth our ideas more deeply into the subjects.”
