The key attributes behind every Final Year Project (FYP) are the tiresome struggle, Passionate research work with careful observations, mind boggling trouble shooting that leads to creative solutions. Last but not the least cautious report writing and presentations After all this, the Final Year Project (FYP) end up resting in the dark quarters of the lab leaving no physical proof that you ever did that.
The worst part is, these projects are neither highlighted nor taken forward so the juniors would carry forward that research to the next level by their research, Innovation and creativity. Even while filing your FYP at any point of your life you can’t look back the working model. You just sum up by adding the FYP report as a proof.
Pakistan Science Club has taken initiative to preserve all FYPs once for all. Pakistan Science Club launches Final Year Projects Video Library. It gives you opportunity to record a detailed video presentation of your FYPs. Read More

An Iranian teacher builds robot to teach prayer Akbar Rezaie, 27, attended private robotics classes and learned to develop and assemble customized humanoid robots.
He teaches the Quran to boys and girls at Alborz elementary school in the town of Varamin, 35 kilometers (20 miles) southeast of Tehran.
A Western dancing and singing doll first sparked in his mind the idea of building a local robot to present religious practice to his students.
"Once I was at a family gathering where there was a little girl playing with a doll that could dance and sing. I saw her watching the doll passionately and it made me contemplate on a making a device that can be used for both religious and entertaining purposes." He told AP Television.
He built the robot at home with basic tools and gave it the designation "Veldan," a Quranic term meaning: "Youth of Heaven."
Veldan is a humanoid robot constructed using an educational kit from the Korean robot manufacturer Robotis Bioloid.
By applying some mechanical modifications such as adding two extra engines, Akbar managed to let the robot perform praying movements, such as prostration, more easily.
"It was so exciting to me to see a robot pray. I have decided to always say my prayers too," said Narges Tajik, a third grader at Alborz School said.
He describes the robot as an educational assistance to teachers and believes that it has so far been successful in attracting students and should be mass-produced.
"As you see the children´s reaction in their faces, you realize how interesting it is to them to see how the science of robotics has been beautifully used for a religious purpose and I am sure it will be greatly effective in teaching them how to pray," he said.
He has formally registered the robot´s invention patent and its intellectual rights at Iran´s State Organization for Registration of Deeds and Properties, a body in charge of recognizing inventions. (AP)
