All we do in Inquivesta is ‘celebrate’ science, here we have many interesting games which will test your creativity and skills ranging from ‘Lost’- where you have to get to a treasure with given clues, to ‘Thrust’- where you have to make your own rocket with basic materials, to ‘Anti chess’- you’ll have to play chess but with a little twist, and many more such games. So come here with us to celebrate science together in India’s largest science fest ‘Inquivesta’.
