Anvi Rai Of Class IX Wins 3rd Prize In Chinese Bridge Event

Tagore International School Vasant Vihar has always been a pathbreaker. We believe that international peace and understanding begins with school children, our future citizens and leaders. To broaden horizons and grapple with the dynamics of a fast-changing world, our students have been a part of varied exchange programmes with schools all over the globe.
 
Our ties with China began in 2008 and have continued unabated even during the pandemic with virtual interactions and collaborations. 
The Chinese Bridge or Chinese Proficiency Competitions for secondary school students is another platform where Indian school and college students display their proficiency in Chinese language and culture. After the rigorous online and later offline selection process,  with  participants  from institutions across the country, Anvi Rai of Class IX,  was shortlisted as one of the six finalists. The Final Round  was held at the Chinese Embassy on 3 June 2023 and included a number of eminent guests.

Congratulations Anvi !
Our Principal, Dr Parul Tyagi in her address spoke of the close bonds forged by TIS, VV with China and especially with our partner school Jinyuan High in Shanghai. 
 
We hope to continue this tradition and develop even closer bonds, thus bringing the youth of India and China together.

Recognition in Robotics

FLL (First Lego League) an international robotics competition, was held in Pune in March 2023.  There were more than 100 teams participating, with 12 international teams. This year’s theme was city shapers – look into issues and problems faced by people living in cities and find technology/ robotic solutions for them. Aahana Sawan of Class VIII  and her team Xtreme8 won the Presentation Category in this national level robotics FLL competition in the 9-14 yr category. 

Aahana and her team Xtreme8 had been preparing for this event  for over two months. They did desk research, spoke with robotics experts in two countries, and with traffic personnel in Delhi. Their solution for endless traffic jams in Delhi was an enhanced traffic signal. In addition to the three light interface, the traffic signal would have additional features like LIDAR, weather sensor, traffic sensor etc. Connected cameras would provide real time information on traffic jumpers, pedestrian flow, accident detection etc. Winning this award at the National level is indeed a big boost for this robotics enthusiast. Well done Aahana !
