The importance of electricity for day to day living was highlighted with live models by the students from eight schools (including Sevalaya) and community college. Sevalaya conducts these exhibitions every year to bring awareness about science. Sevalaya’s Dr A P J Abdul Kalam Science centre is open to the public, students and staff of the schools in the neighbouring villages.
It was fascinating to hear the students animatedly explain the history of electricity, kinds of electricity, ways of generating and distributing electricity. The students also went on to explain renewable and non-renewable sources of electricity, and most importantly how to deal with electricity safely.
The Editor of The Hindu was the chief guest and spoke about the need for information to flow from villages to cities and towns. He was pleased to hear that all the services rendered by Sevalaya were free of cost to the beneficiaries.
Another feature of the exhibition was the Audio/Video presentation about organ donation. The staff of Sevalaya made a 20 minute presentation about organ donation. The exhibition started on Saturday, August 13, 2016 and ends August 16, 2016.
