Green meet at Mesra cradle

Two hundred students from 14 schools of Ranchi, Jamshedpur, Dhanbad and Bokaro took up the Green cause through a series of events on the BIT-Mesra campus on Sunday.

Debates, quiz and science exhibitions were the platforms the students used to get their points across during the Jharkhand Science and Environment Festival, organised by the Environment Protection and Awareness Club (EPAC) of the cradle. Informal events like ‘junkyard mania’ and other such games were also on for the entertainment of students.

Gautam Agarwal, founder of EPAC said all paper used in the event like writing pads and identity cards were made from recycled paper. “Even the trophies were made of recycled iron,” he added.

At the end of the day, it was time to declare the winners. Ankita Kumari, a Class XI student of Tender Heart School, Ranchi, walked off with first place while the second prize was bagged by Shrishti Saumya, a Class X student of Bridgford School, Ranchi.

Likewise, the first prize in the science exhibition was bagged by Tender Heart School, Ranchi, second prize by Delhi Public School, Dhanbad and third prize by St Aloysius High School, Ranchi. The top two slots in the environment quiz were bagged by Kerala Samajam School, Jamshedpur.
