National Science Day celebrated


Hyderabad,Feb 28/2013 : "Experience Botany by observing the plants, Zoology from isects and birds around you, Physics from machines around you, Chemistry from pollution around you and Geography from the soil around you", was the message of National Science Day to over 150 students from 6 schools who visited Noor Mohammed Kunta and the Sewage Treatment Plant today. "We used to read science but we experienced today" said the students who were present at the field visit organized by the AP Pollution Control Board. It was a wonderful field teaching and learning experience with all aspects of science dealt in an integrated fashion linking them to our life and livelihood, said the teachers.

Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board is implementing the World Bank supported project on remediating the Noor Mohammed Kunta lake near Katedan Industrial Estate with an area based approach. As a part of this effort there is a felt need to develop stakeholders who will be interested in protecting and preserving the quality of water in the remediated lake. Today's field visit was organized in order to involve the neighbourhood school teachers, school children and local community in observing the changing status of the quality of water in the lake and generate a sustained interest with it. As a part of the visit the students were shown the process of treatment adopted at the STP. They were shown the inlets and outlets of the water. They were explained the gradients and linkages that exist between various tanks which finally leads to the Musi river.

Later posters on rating of the schools basing on their "Environmental Pollution Foot Print" and "Environmental Protection Hand Print" were released by M Samuel Special Chief Secretary Environment Forests Science and Technology. Speaking on the occasion he lauded the efforts of the school students and teachers in conservation education. He also wanted that the Students of Professional Colleges should come forward and participate in Energy Conservation efforts being promoted by the state government in the context of severe energy crunch.

The day long awareness programmes were organized by the Prakrithi Mitra and Environment Education Wing of AP Pollution Control Board today.
