WHY? Science Express – Biodiversity Special is an innovative and unique mobile exhibition mounted on a specially designed 16 coach AC train, which is travelling across India over seven months. In the last days it has been in Kamakhya Station, Guwahati, and the local CEE Team + CARBON were supporting the exhibition.
HOW? In average more then ten CARBON members were joining the activities. In the main hall a painting competition was organized for class 3 to 8 on environment and energy. The winners will be invited to a national level competition. Furthermore volunteers were playing environmental games and initiating dance flash mobs on the platform. Also volunteers were in the train to interpret the exhibition into Assamese and thus make it easier understandable.
OUTCOME? More than 250 students were participating in the painting competition and much more children were participating in the platform games. Many people were showing interest in the CARBON banner and interacting with the volunteers. There was a high media coverage and participants as well as Science Express Team thanked the volunteers for their work.
We hope that awareness about Biodiversity and Science could be raised and people of Guwahati enjoyed our activities and the train exhibition.
