Solar Lamp making
To mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, over a million students from over 100 countries across five continents paid tribute to the Father of our Nation – in a way he would have probably truly appreciated.
Chetan Singh Solanki, an associate professor at the Department of Energy Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, spearheaded this unique campaign that involved children from across the world making solar-charged study lamps in their schools and taking a pledge of “non-violence to environment” as a tribute to Gandhi and his teachings.
20 students of our school from classes VI to IX along with two faculty members, Mr Divyendu Priyadarshi, and Ms Shraddha Mathuria as trainers, participated in an event ‘Global Student Solar Ambassador Workshop’ held at Indira Gandhi Stadium Complex in the National capital, Delhi organised by Ministry of New and Renewable Energy.
The objective of the event was to increase the awareness of the world, especially, children, towards the environmental issues and how solar power generation could solve some of the problems significantly. The most prominent means of electricity generation is by burning coal, but it creates significant pollution. Solar cell is a device to produce electricity from sunlight. If coal can be replaced with solar energy, we can save our environment up to an extent. Further, replacing petroleum feeding cars by solar cars reduces further pollution of our environment. But, to achieve these goals, we need a global awareness towards the miracles of solar energy. Students from Delhi-NCR lighted over 10,000 solar lamps to attempt a world record.
All participants were given a kit which consisted of components of a solar lamp, together with necessary tools like multimeter and soldering machine. Students, with the help of trainers, had to assemble it in specified time limit.
The concluding session was addressed by Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forest and climate change. The participants took oath to save environment. This incident was recorded in the Guinness world record.
