The main objective of this session is to make mathematics an interesting subject in a fun way. Then puzzle games were played to test the thinking ability of the students followed by a quiz on Mathematical Structures. After that number forming activity was done in which students were asked to form 4 and 5-digit numbers which students enjoyed thoroughly. Later, Questions based on mathematics were asked from the audio and video clips on probability, and knot theory games. At last, students played a snake and ladder game in which questions based on Mathematics were asked to move the steps after rolling the dice. The session was highly interactive and energetic in which students participated enthusiastically and enjoyed the session thoroughly.

On Day – 3 i.e., on 3rd August 2023, session started with creating awareness among students about Research Cell & Activities and explaining to students the importance of accelerated skill development and how to achieve it with the help of Research Cell. Dr. Nilakshi Jain explained the importance of developing skills and importance of having industry exposure.
