The club conducted some events during the annual techno cultural fest Anaadyanta-2019. We basically built a planetarium and put up various exhibits brought from the planetarium for display which explained phenomenon of eclipse, the Martian atmosphere, constellations, moon charts etc. It was a good start and many students found it interesting. Particularly the portable planetarium was the centre of attraction wherein we displayed the night sky and other celestial phenomenon.
