Glimpses from E-Week 2013
Creativity and eco friendly activities turned out to be a fun enterprise for both college students and their protégées, the school children who were trained in this. Their handicrafts ranging from necklaces made from newspapers to postcards from X-ray films are on sale at the college at the store aptly called Wow.
Around 30 students of the E Cell at part of E week visited St Josephs School and Little Stars School and trained the high school students in fashioning the best out of recyclable material. They used sea shells, coconut shells, bags and old scarves to come out with beautiful trinkets and wall hangings.
“We enjoyed training the children. It was also a great refreshment for us to do this fun activity. It was good to be able to communicate and interact with the school children,” said Anuradha Sawant, third year biomedical engineering student of Watumull Enginnering College.
Wow is the acronym of Wealth to Waste. We are going to use the money raised from the sale of these products for tr ee plantation, said Rekha B, third year computer engineering student, who enjoyed spending time with the children and feels enriched with the experience.
