Best out of waste competition (29-4-14) )I-V

Recycling and reusing the valuable waste material can result in the development of fantastic and usable products. Rather than putting these waste materials into the landfills, various innovative and creative ideas can be put together to being something new and useful. Best out of waste develops the ability to think and organize the thinking to create something useful. It indulges the students into a extracurricular activity with exclusive tool i.e. waste material. It explores the environmental concepts and actions which are beyond the curriculum & syllabus. It makes our vision and outlook broader about the nature & society.
