The Department of Chemical Engineering, MVJCE, organized a club activity ‘Chem-Clave’ on 04th September 2019, at the Chemical Engineering Department. The event started at 12:30 pm and ended at 4:00 pm, and was attended by 95 students (27 groups) from the Chemical Engineering Department.
The thought behind conducting this event was ‘Every day, we learn something new, but hardly bother to analyze our General Knowledge along with Analytical Skills’. This event aimed at making the students aware of their basic skills and logical ability.
Round 1: Chem Trix
This Round was Quiz-based, with questions relating to General Knowledge, Aptitude and Reasoning. 27 teams participated in the Round which was for 15 minutes. At the end of the Round, 13 teams qualified for the next Round.
Round 2: Chem-Charades
In this Round, a set of things along with a proverb were displayed on the table, and one student from each group was given 20 seconds to observe and memorize the things. The student had to enact the things to his/her team members. 13 teams participated in this Round which was conducted for 30 minutes. At the end of Round 2, 5 teams were selected to enter Round 3.
Round 3: Treasure Hunt
In this Round, 5 groups took part, and they had to use their presence of mind to find the clues which consisted of puzzles and riddles. After collecting all the clues, the team had to return to the Department with the treasure. At end of this Round, the teams which reached the venue first with the treasure were declared as the Winner and Runner up.
The 1st place was secured by Anju P Shruthi (1MJ15CH040), Abdulla Mursid B M (1MJ16CH003) and Shaik Simran Khalil (1MJ16CH043), from 8th semester Chemical Engineering. The 2nd place was secured by Harshitha K Hebbar (1MJ16CH027), Nanditha N (1MJ16CH037) and Sushma K M (1MJ16CH048) from 8th semester Chemical Engineering.
The event was very interesting, interactive and beneficial. The students solved the questions in groups, pitched in new ideas, and actively took part in the club activity.
“Knowledge is true, if it’s based on logic, not memory”. As a change from their regular curriculum, the students felt refreshed, and learnt a lot on time management, team work, presence of mind and logical thinking.
