The Community’s leading establishment for children and young adults – the XYZ (Xtremely Young Zoroastrians) Foundation, held its annual events – ‘Brainiax’, as also celebrated its sixth Annual Day, on 19th December, 2020, conducted virtually, over Zoom.
‘Brainiax’ was conducted across three age groups (Under 9, Under 12, and Under 17), and comprised four activities – ‘Mathemagix’ (Mental Maths); ‘Blox’ (Lego/Building blocks); ‘Scientifix’ (Experiments); and ‘Smartex’ (Quiz). The day started with a common Zoom call where the enthusiastic participants were briefed for the day. The Mathemagix eliminations commenced, followed by the Blox finals, where participants across age groups displayed their creativity and mechanical intelligence.
After a brief lunch break, the Smartex eliminations were held, followed by the Scientifix finals, where participants displayed interesting and fun experiments. The finals for Mathemagix and Smartex was conducted on a one-on-one basis across all age groups.
