?I have never seen anything like this before. This is really exciting,? Senivota said.

She said her classmates visited all the booths and they were briefed about the projects on diplay by the booth attendants.

?I am very much interested in engineering and the displays over here have given me an insight into the area of my interest,? she said.

Another student, Tevita Qoro from Suva Primary school said he wanted to be an electrician, and was at the exhibition to see the electrical school displays.

?I want to know more about electrical enginnering,? he said.

One of the projects that left the students awestruck was a robot created by students of the School of Electrical and Electronics.
