Children explore Fort Time Gun and Trisulam Hill

Does Brodie's Castle make a good subject?
Has the Parsi Fire Temple already been taken?
Can we do a presentation on the Fort Time Gun?

These are questions from kids and their teachers.
They are for the multimedia presentation contest for school children on the Heritage of Chennai.

The contest encourages the students to explore the history and heritage behind the lesser known landmarks and organisations in Chennai city.
This presentation contest is in its fourth year. And every year twenty teams come up with twenty different topics. We restrict the registration to twenty on first come first serve basis. because the contest is held for a full day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. More the entries longer the day!

Till today 18 teams have registered and now we are left with just two slots for just two teams.
The enthusiastic teams from Sri Sankara Senior sec. School, Adyar were disappointed when we said only one team from each school can participate. They rephrased their query, "Can there be more than three members in a team? We have a lot to present!"

The details of the contest are on the website.
