Habab’s project was titled “Multi-Purpose Smart Solar Device” which involved the creation of a low-cost solar device controlled through an android application. He was mentored by President and Founder of Pakistan science club Mr. Abdul Rauf. The prime purpose of the project was to make a multi-purpose, low-cost and eco-friendly device that works on the principle of renewable energy. The Smart Solar Device can raise and maintain the temperature with respect to its surroundings. Moreover, the temperature can also be controlled through an android application.
