The textile department also came up with a couple of such ideas, one of them being “Bullet and Stab resistant fabrics”.

Open house ,the day when IITD celebrates innovation and technology, saw the premises of IIT Delhi flooded with young minds gung ho to know more about science and technology. The Centre for Polymer Science and Engineering (CPSE) mainly emphasised on plastics along with applications of polymers . The first stall showcased flame retarding plastics which are made by adding non-halogentaed FR additives to flammable plastics.
The open house organized this weekend by IIT Delhi stood apart, but the fashion in which the Department of Applied Mechanics stood out was nothing short of a spectacle. As I walked towards Block IV, the airship stole my attention, and boy was I happy to be reporting for the department.
