What If?’ is an event that encourages participants to think and imagine a world where the science facts we know, no longer apply. The participants come up with the consequences and effects of the fact no longer being in place. It tests one’s understanding of these facts of nature and also one’s imagination.

For example:- The participants can be asked to speak upon – ‘What would happen if earth  stopped spinning?’. The more creative one gets with the speech, higher the points.

The event has two rounds.

Round 1:-

  1. The participants will be given a topic. It is an individual activity.

Ex:- ‘What if the speed of light and sound were switched?’

  1. 10 minutes of preparation time will be given to each speaker.
  2. The participants should speak on the topic given for 3 minutes. The speech can be plain or can be a story.
  3. They will be judged on the basis of content, logic, creativity and presentation.

Round 2:-

  1. The selected participants from round 1 will be made into groups. Group size depends upon the number of selected people.
  2. They will be given a case study.

Ex:- ‘The world has reached a point where the existing afforestation rate can’t save the planet and thus committee X has decided to terraform Sahara desert. You however find this idea infeasible and thus have to come up with a solution to convince the committee X. Discuss with the team and propose a solution’

  1. The participants should discuss with the team (like a GD) and each one should propose their conclusion.
  2. The winners will be decided based on the feasibility of the solution, logic and presentation.

Round 1:- Time limit – 3 minutes. Strict adherence to time limit is important.

 

Round 2:- Every participant should give his/her conclusion.

 Time limit – 3 minutes.

Instructions given by the moderator should be followed. Decorum should be maintained.
