Class 10 student bags Inspire award for experiment with bicycle
Cherthala: For Gangesh, a bicycle is not just a mode of transportation. His experiment using a bicycle had won him the Central Government’s ‘Inspire award’ worth Rs 10,000. This year, he won the same award yet again for another experiment involving a bicycle.
Gangesh, a class 10 student of Government Higher Secondary School in Thannermukkam, is son of Jolidas and Sajitha.
During 2019- 2020, he won appreciation after he designed a bicycle that can run a motor while exercising. This year, Gangesh presented an idea that works as an alternate system for gear, using freewheel and sockets.
Inspire award is instituted by the Central government and NIFA to high school students for scientific experiments. The award is distributed to 10,000 eligible students out of 2 lakh applicants.
