On the occasion of 58th ASCOL day, one of the biggest science exhibition was conducted by Amrit Science Campus (ASCOL) in co-ordination with Ministry Of Science and Technology on Ashwin 1st and 2nd, 2072 B.S. ASCOL premise warmly welcomed participants from renowned organizations like Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), Hamri Bahini, Himalayan Climate Initative etc and also from colleges like Padma Kanya Multiple Campus and National Institute of Science and Technology. Participants displayed different materials and provided the brochures they had. Including them, we, the students of Bsc. 3rd year studying at ASCOL took part in the exhibition with the support of ECCA (Environmental Camps For Conservation Awareness). Our chief objective was to make the visitors aware about contents of WASH(Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) and help them understand how their interrelationship contributes towards healthier living. Along with exhibiting the materials related to water purification i.e. Tulip Water Filter, WATASOL, and WATA devices, we also shared information about their usage, advantages and working mechanism. We gave detailed information regarding WATASOL; a chlorine containing liquid that purifies water. About 350 visitors visited the stall during the two days period. Throughout the programme we held active interactions with the visitors and we received positive responses as expected.
We are thankful to Department of Environmental Science of ASCOL for providing an opportunity to share our knowledge. Likewise, we are thankful towards the visitors for making the program successful. Most of all, we are thankful towards ECCA for its coordination and support without which this success would have never been impossible.
