To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at another world. A quiz was conducted for the students of Presidium, based on French culture and language to encourage students to gain general knowledge, apart from subject knowledge. The students found the Translation round bit difficult as it consisted of various vocabulary words which they managed to identify correctly. The most interesting round of the quiz was the Picture round where students showed zeal. They had to identify the different verbs and words based on the picture shown to them. The questions were shown to the students on the board through a presentation and a timer of 15 seconds was set for them. Both teams were very active during the quiz. The scoreboard showed that both of them gave neck-to-neck competition against each other. This activity encouraged teamwork and enhanced their subject knowledge.
The Constitution of India is the longest written constitution of any independent country in the world. However, the Indian Constitution is known as a bag of borrowings for its varied sources of many features. Thus, the Indian constitution is not just a copy-paste work. Instead the Indian constitution is a result of dedicated learning of those makers. This particular project was undertaken by the students of Presidium to contemplate the need to understand that the Indian constitution is not a carbon copy of existing constitutions of the world. During India’s independence era, we needed a quick constitution to start our united and free India. India has taken great strides in making a constitution, and it was the duty of our constitutional forefathers to draft a constitution to fit a country so culturally diverse, and economically wide. To enlighten students, various features of the Indian constitution have been discussed with students. Students have articulated their understanding through project work. It was a delightful experience to see the students glorify the activity with a wonderful source of project work.

They enjoyed the activity and now can find out the unknown resistance and determination of null points by themselves.
