Contraption Event – Vellore Institute of Technology

Our designed contraption mechanism - standing here is my team mate Shipra Gupta

‘Contraption’ is a concept of Physics in which a force has to travel maximum distance by converting one energy into the another. In the competition,the task was to build the contraption mechanism and maximize the distance travel by any matter. The competition was part of National Technical Symposium “Saadhana 07” held under the aegis of the School of Mechanical and Building Sciences, VIT University.

A team of 3 students from different engineering streams worked over 2 months to gather ideas, developing the individual prototypes and finally building a contraption mechanism. We have won the competition and our winning presentation can be seen here:
