4.In this project Pythagoras theorem was proved using 3D models.
5.This project showed an electroscope which detects charge whenever a charged body is touched to it.
6.This project was a matrix which had a network of electrical circuits which lit up small bulbs when connected in a correct pattern.
7.This project depicted a model of the whole of solar system.
