Students of class IV of Amity International school Pushp Vihar visited the Qutub Minar which has been included in the coveted list of World Heritage Sites to commemorate 100 years of Delhi. All equipped with painting material and with great excitement they participated in painting competition putting all their efforts to express their appreciation for their remarkable monument.

All were in high spirit of giving honour to one of the greatest treasure of Delhi’s history. The time gap seemed to have vanished for these versatile stars who seemed to have got lost in the time of Qutubuddin Aibak. The students also interacted with some of the foreign tourists apprising them with the history of Qutub Minar and making them aware of the completion of 100 years of Delhi which made some of them to participate with their children in the creative activity of painting organized by the students of Amity International school Pushp Vihar. The students were appreciated and photographed by some of the tourists.

On the whole it was a memorable visit giving the factual experience to the students getting them to know more about the Indian culture with growing interest of young brains towards the history of their country India.




Educational Trip To Indian Agricultaral Research Institute

On the 18th of January, class VIII students went on an educational trip to IARI, also known as Pusa Institute. The visit started with a speech by DR. J.P Sharma ( Head of Extension Division). He enlightened us about the history of IARI. He told us that it was established in 1905 in Pusa, Bihar near Samastipur. But due to an earthquake it was shifted to Central Delhi. It covers a wide area of 750 hectares. This institute is also called the mother of green revolution. It is a centre for protected cultivation technology.
Its three features are:-

  • Research
  • Education
  • Extension ( transformation technology)

Multi-farious crops are also grown in this institute campus. Drip
irrigation technology, a system in which water falls drop by drop just at the position of the roots thus saving water and utilizing it 100%, is used to grow crops here.
There are three types of greenhouses to grow crops here:-

  • A greenhouse that uses power or electricity to grow tomatoes, capsicum ( contains antioxidant elements), brinjal ( egg plant ), etc. Seedless cucumber is also grown in this greenhouse using parthenocarpy. This cucumber comes from the cucurbitaceae family.
  • There is also a greenhouse that doesn’t use power instead uses solar energy to grow crops.
  • The third greenhouse uses a mixture of coconut peel ( coconut waste), vermiculate and perilate instead of the mineral rich soil for the germination of seeds which are later transplanted on the fields.

 Next, we visited the world of insects. We were taught about entomology, the study of insects in the entomology museum.

There are 0.5 million species collection with 17,500 identified species in the museum. These species are preserved with the help of formalin or alcohol solution. DR. Ramdas Menan is collecting these insects and one of his most spectacular discovery was finding the world’s largest moth, Attacus Atlas.

 


TERI – THE ENERGY AND RESURCES INSTITUTE VISIT

Visit to TERI was indeed a mind blowing experience. The complex saves 40% - 50% of energy costs over conventionally designed buildings at an additional investment of about 25%. Twenty four solar water heating panels (inclined at 70 degrees instead of 45 degrees) provide upto 2000 liters of hot water every day. Photovoltaic panels capture the sun’s energy and recharge their batteries during the day. The energy generated by the panels is fed into a battery bank, which is the main source of power at night. Firewood, dried leaves and twigs, the stubble left in the field after a crop is harvested, and such other forms of biomass fuel the 50 kilowatt gasifier that is the source of power for the building during the day.
Effective insulation, shade provided by trees, and a network of underground earth air tunnels circulating cool subterranean air throughout the residential block ensure that the temperature in the complex remains more or less even all year round at 20o C in winter, 280C in the dry summer, and 30oC in the monsoon. The system has been augmented by adding chillers for dehumidification and additional cooling during the monsoon.
Specially designed skylights, energy efficient lights and a sophisticated system of monitoring and controlling the consumption of electricity, light up the complex with less than 10 kilowatts; a comparable conventionally designed structure would require nearly 28 kilowatt to provide the same level of lighting. A bed of reed plants (Phragmytes) clarifies 5 cubic metres of waste from the toilets and kitchen every day; the recycled water is used for irrigation.  The full form of TERI is the energy and resource institute. The director of TERI is Dr. RK Pachauri and he has been with TERI since 1974.

All the 3 Ropes dispersed for their activity with the instructor and the teacher in charge. All the 3 Ropes did 1 activity each on Nov. 5, 2011. After assembling back in the ground in the evening the students were then offered some snacks. The students were then asked to sit Rope wise and were allotted their tents. After taking a break of about an hour or two the students were then taken for a night trekking accompanied by the teachers and the instructors. The students after returning from a very interesting and adventurous trekking experience had their dinner which was followed by a DJ party. The students enjoyed dancing with their friends with no tensions and fears. The students were then instructed to move towards the tents allotted to them sleep tight and get ready for the challenges waiting for them next morning.
The students woke up next morning. They went for a walk and to play football around 7 a.m...

The students enjoyed the trip and being out without their parents but with their friends for an overnight camp. They not only had fun but learnt a lot of things there. They not only learnt how to defend themselves but also the people and the Nation if any such situation comes up. They were really sensitive thinking about the hard and harsh life of a soldier who without thinking about himself, his family lives for his Nation and fights for the citizens. They even understood the importance of eating healthy food, fruits and green vegetables to stay fit and fine.
