Two years have already passed since the 21st of November, 2011. Last month on the 24th of November, 2013, we celebrated the second anniversary of the E-Base with a lot of excitement as on this day the students played the most important role- that of the teachers!
The fair was a culmination of sorts of two years of workshops as we took it as an opportunity to let the children display their learnings at the E-Base. With science experiments and demonstrations, waste installations, biodiversity games and competitions, the E-Base was abuzz with close to 250 students in attendance!
We had students explaining scientific concepts and natural phenomena through demonstrations and games to their juniors and adults present.
The students also worked very hard on creatively upcycling the garbage they found in their villages to make entries for the ‘Best of Waste Competition’ and other waste installations for the E-Base.
We even had the students display their papier mache creations made in the workshop the previous week and explain the process of giving new life to their old textbooks through this art.
Face painting was a real attraction for the younger students. They loved their tiger and leopard faces!
At the end of the fair, the students watched Nikhil Advani’s ‘Delhi Safari’, a movie that got the students really thinking about conservation.
We’d like to this opportunity to thank our support system in Pench. Without the help of Jungle Home Resort which very tirelessly helps with materials for workshops and our travel in Pench, our workshops wouldn’t be half as good as they are. Also, a big thank you to Baghvan for supporting us in our school projects and always showing up with delicious cakes for our anniversaries!
With such a success on just the second anniversary, here’s to many more years to come at the E-Base!
