Vice Chancellor M. Jagadesh Kumar, in his address to the students, emphasised that one of the responsibilities of JNU as a public institution is to inspire the young minds to building their career and also be connected to the larger social realities, said a statement issued by the varsity.

"Children were enthralled with the wide range of exhibits, ranging from a live demonstration of an insect-eating plant from northeast India, to understanding how to convert vibrations to energy, measure air pollution and learn new languages, " it said.

A film on JNU was shown to the students, followed by three parallel sessions on Mind Mapping and basic introduction to Indian sign languages.

Besides that, an animation film on Panchantantra and a documentary from School of Languages were also shown to the students, who were later taken to different stalls and school buildings.

Chief guest, V. Ramagopal Rao, Director of IIT-Delhi also addressed the students and emphasised on the need to be inquisitive and to raise question than provide answers.
