Single round event.
One individual round each day.
Each day new problem statement is given.

Stability (tests logical skills).
Depends on given problem statement.
Eg. Max weight criteria for bridge.
PROBLEM : CONSTRUCT A SUSPENSION BRIDGE
Bridge should not have any support in the middle that length should be min 35cms.
The bridge should be min 10 cms high from the ground.

1 -Rs.10 Fevicol, Rs.5 Fevicol.
- Participants need to have PRAGYAN REGISTRATION NUMBER for registration.
Maximum of 3 members per team.
Materials provided should only be used else leads to elimination of model.
In case of a tie, judge decision will be final.
Time and place of submission of models to be specified in problem statement
Additional rules relating to model to be specified in problem statement.
Kits to be served on first come first serve basis.
1. How should the working model be constructed using given materials like pop sticks, pins and straws etc ?
Model is constructed according to the given problem statement and everything will be cleared before providing the kit.
2. How should the model look like?
Model, it should not cross the limitations which is given in the problem statement .you can come up with new working model which satisfies the problem statement.
