Towards a Safer Metaverse:
Safeguarding the Virtual World for Women

Pune, Maharashtra | March 8th and 9th, 2022

Amey Ajgar, a familiar name to readers, and a star-pupil of S.B. Patil Public School has once again proved himself worthy and deservant of merit by presenting the paper: “Key security challenges for women in Metaverse and Solutions to Overcome Those Challenges”. The co-authors for the paper were: Ms. Yogita Ajgar and Ms. Priyanka Bagul, both assistant professors of Electronics and Telecommunication at Modern Education Society’s College of Engineering, Pune.

The paper stressed on how the Metaverse is the future of the internet, and that upcoming decades will be ruled by the Metaverse. Thus before this technology becomes a necessity for people, it is equallyimportant to make it safe for all sections of society including women. Social media makes womenan easy target of cyber bullying, digital frauds and many other issues.

It cannot be denied that the Metaverse is a hundred times more immersive, and this intensifies the need of cyber security for women. In Web 3.0, women have faced critical security issues and it is necessary to improve the Metaverse and make it a safer technology for women to use without the hassle of harassment.

The paper was presented at the International Conference on Gender Equality and Women Empowerment on the occasion of Women’s Day on March 8th and 9th, 2022, and will be published in the upcoming issue of the European Journal on Humanities and Educational Advancements (EJHEA).

Congratulations, Amey for once again having got yourself published; a feat accomplished at such a young age. We wish you the very best, and are certain you have in front of yourself a scintillating future paved.

My Experience at the BSE International Finance Olympiad:
A Narrative by Sai Saketh

Pune, Maharashtra | February 2nd, 2022

Sai Saketh, a student of X-B partook in the BSE International Financial Olympiad performed exceedingly well in the finals and has achieved a joint first position. He was awarded a cash price of Rs. 7,000, along with a merit certificate. As if this was less of glory, hereceived a 100% scholarship to Industry Mentored Course offered by the BSE Institute.

Following is the narrative of the event in his own words:

BSE International Finance Olympiad “I am a student of Financial Market Management (FMM), a course which started last year at S.B. Patil Public School. It is a great and easy course, and I took it for my future. This year there was quiz organised by the Bombay Stock Exchange. Well, all the students in FMM enrolled and gave the first examination for the quiz online.

Although it was hard, some students from our course got selected to the second round. Unlike the first round which was taken on online, the second round was an offline quiz and washeld on the 27th of January, 2022.

Even though I was nervous, I passed the first round of the examination. I did not know what to expect from it as the syllabus was vague and vast, but it turned out to be not as hard as I expected. I was among the top six students from Grade X, and was selected for the finals which were held on the 9th of February.

On the day of finals, I was not confident enough that I will make it till the end, and once the quiz started I started to feel nervous as the competition was fierce. Unlike the semi-finals, the finals had five rounds so maintaining the lead was hard and the scoreboards could change at any given point.

Even though I did not do well at the beginning, nearly lost my composure seeing the difficulty of questions, I held my reserve all the way. The knowledge I gained from studying FMM added to some common sense helped me to win the competition getting tied with another student at 11 points.

I would say that this quiz helped me see that people can go to any length to win and it sort of motivated to win the competition. I want to thank my principal, Dr. Saini ma’am; vice principal, Ms. Padmavati ma’am, my FMM teacher, Ms. Aayesha Syed ma’am; and everyone else for starting the FMM course at our school, and giving me this opportunity to participate in this competition.

Thank you all!”

Dear Sai, we would like to say that we are more than proud of you for working so hard towards this competition. We wish you our heartiest congratulations and the very best for every one of your future endeavours.

The paper, “Automatic Irrigation System Using Arduino for Accurate Irrigation” dealt with understanding how irrigation is one of the most important aspects of agriculture and how important it is to provide exact amount of water to crop. An amount more or less than required could deplete it drastically.

NIER’s ICET 21 The paper went on to specify that since the process is labour-intensive and manual, it would be productive to make it machine-automated so that the farmer can operate it from any part of the globe using the internet and SMSs.

Orbiting the Stars:
Setting a Name for Himself in the India Book of Records

Pune, Maharashtra | July 5th, 2021

With 2021 being another stepping stone to umpteen wins not just for the school itself but also for the faculty, teachers and students, we are most pleased and to announce that Khushansh Chigate, a student of I-A has had his name engraved in the India Book of Records. Following is his father, Mr. Dinesh Chigate’s narrative on his son’s win.

Rethink Plastic to Save the Earth “In this online world children are dependent on electronic media. Online classes, online project works, games and so on. Even through online teaching, the teachers of S.B. Patil Public School are working hard to ensure the holistic development of their students.We owe our gratitude to them. Due to the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, children were not allowed to go out for outdoor games. Khushansh and his sister were also not permitted to play in the society’s grounds.

Khushansh has always been physically strong. At age four he used to do ten pushups and go for running. Extremely fond of the Indian Army, he has already made it his goal to become an army officer for which he is preparing to become a strong man as men in the army are. In fact, last year, whilst in Senior KG, he had performed an army drill on S.B. Patil Public School’s Virtual Annual Day for which his teacher, fellow students and their parents appreciated him.

Rethink Plastic to Save the Earth Looking at his interest in the Indian Army, we started training him at home with daily exercise, showed him several movies depicting and based on the army, His favorite movie is “Uri: The Surgical Strike”. We enrolled him and his sister in an eight-day summer camp in May 2021 for Lathi-Kathi which is a form of martial art.We trained him and his sister in hula-hoop at home. They competed amongst themselves to motivate each other and build interest in it.

Rethink Plastic to Save the Earth Khushansh used to rotate his hula hoop with great speed with his right hand whilst his sister circled it with her waist. Khushansh’s mother felt that since he is so fluent at it at such a young age of six, why not to enroll him to set a record.

In this way, the search began and we came across the India Book of Records. We applied for the record in June. By July we got a reply to attempt the record. Following all their rules and regulations, Khushansh performed and thus, at the age of six years two months and 27 days, on July 5th, 2021, he set a record of Maximum Hula Hoop Rotations Hula Hoop by One Hand in One Minutewith 181rpms.

Being Khushansh’s parents we are proud of him, and we are certain everyone at S.B. Patil Public School is so too and bless him to set many more such records in future.Thankyou!”

It certainly goes without saying that everyone from the principal, Dr. Saini; his coordinators, Ms. Banda and Ms. Shubhangi Kulkarni; the sub-coordinators, Ms. Nirupama Kale, Ms. Vandana Sangle and Ms. Archana Prabhune; to his class teacher, Ms. Priya Aparajit are all proud of this budding army man. Well done and the best of wishes and blessing from us all at S.B. Patil Public School.

Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro:bit:
A Paper Presentation by Amey Ajgar

Pune, Maharashtra | June 19th, 2021

Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro, SBPPS Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro, SBPPS

Amey Ajgar is a bright IX-B student of S.B. Patil Public School who has been doing the school proud with not only his constant participations in a multitude of competitions, conventions and events but also winning prizes at each.

Of late, Amey was awarded a Certificate of Participation but more importantly, a certificate for being the youngest presenter at the 7thNational Conference on Advancements in Communication, Computing and Electronics Technology organised by M.E.S College of Engineering’s Department of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, Pune.

What is more interesting is that there were 72 paper submissions from all over India, and every presenter was above his early 20s being post-graduates and academics thus making the 14-year-old a lamb among lions. Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro, SBPPS

Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro, SBPPS The paper, “Gesture Recognition & Wireless Alerting System Using Micro:bit” suggested that safety was a very important aspect of our life, especially in this day and age. The security of any object is at risk when a person moves the object without the owner’s permission.

Thus the aim stated system would be to aid in alerting the owner of the device whenever the object is moved sans his permission. This system is a combination of two Micro:bits which would be connected wirelessly with each other. Whenever the Micro:bit placed near the object moves, it would trigger a signal to the host Micro:bit thus alerting the owner via a buzzer and LED display.

We all are immensely proud of young Amey who is showing no hesitation and reluctance in participating in competitions, making a name for himself and our school. We wish this bright young lad the very best for every future undertaking.

Eaglets Among Eagles:
At the Innovation Challenge Pitch, 2021

Pune, Maharashtra | May 1st to 12th, 2021

Eaglets Among Eagles: At the Innovation Challenge Pitch, 2021 The Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering, Pune; in association with the Center for Innovation, Incubation and Linkages Forum (CIIL) and Institution’s Innovation Council (IIC) organised a Problems to Prosperity (P2P) Innovation Challenge Pitch. Thrust areas for the project-based learning community were:

1. Agricultural Products and Food Processing
2. Robotics
3. Energy
4. AI ML
5. E-vehicles
6. Environment
7. Rural and Tribal Development

Whilst this event was aimed at college students, and since no age criteria was stated, Amey Ajgar and Sameera Kulkarni of S.B. Patil Public School were selected to participate in the event among a total of 40 submissions. Following is Sameera’s narrative on her experience:

“Recently, my friend, Amey and I participated in an event organised by the PCCoE. The event was about making innovating and creative models. So we came up with an idea for “Automatic Irrigation System”. We took this idea as it was related to agriculture and farming.

The model was about an irrigation system which would water plants and crops automatically when in need. This would thus reduce farmers’ efforts while increasing their income as they would now be able to divert their attention to more productive tasks. This system would also help in supplying the exact amount of water required

Using this, farmers would be introduced to new technology that would help them increase their overall production. We prepared a video presentation explaining the model, its features and its working.

For the first round, there were 40 entries from all different colleges. We were the only team selected from a school. For the final round, we were chosen to participate in the top ten groups. This itself was a great achievement for us.

We, in great anticipation, awaited the results for nearly two weeks in which we were given the consolation prize. Even though we never won the first, second or third prize, we are still proud of our final result because we were at the school level participating in a college-level event. And this was an even greater achievement for us. Eaglets Among Eagles: At the Innovation Challenge Pitch, 2021

We thank our mentors: Lakde sir, Gawai sir and Kalti sir. They guided us very well and we learned a lot of things from them and the other finalists as well. We also thank our principal, Bindu Saini ma’am, our coordinators, Padmavati ma’am, Neerupama ma’am, Vandana ma’am and Archana ma’am for helping and guiding us through this time. We also have to give a big thank you to Neeru ma’am who mentored us from the start. Thank you all!”

Thank you and congratulations to both of you, Amey and Sameera for doing so astoundingly well. We once again extend our gratitude to our principal, coordinators and especially to Dr. Neeru Malik, the innovative lab in-charge who mentored these bright, young and jovial minds.

We also extend our gratitude to the Board of Trustees: Mr. Dnyaneshwar Landge, Chairman; Ms. Padma M. Bhonsle, Vice-chairperson; Mr. V.S. Kalbhor, Secretary; Mr. Shantaram Garade, Treasurer; Mr. Harshwardhan Patil, Trustee; and Dr. Girish Desai, Executive Director for organising the event.
