Nearly 150 students from DPS Ranchi took part in the festival and were enthralled on exploring the intricate relationship within the ecosystems, impact of human activities on biodiversity and the differences made by the restoration efforts.
The film screening was followed by hands-on experience for the students on the theme of ecosystem restoration where students were divided into groups and each group was given the task of designing and conducting a small-scale experiment that mirrored real-world restoration efforts.
The experiments not only allowed students to apply scientific principles but also encouraged critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
