Their project adjudged one of the best 3 by young scientists.
KOZHIKODE: As a stepping stone to their dream, two students of Mambaram English Medium Higher Secondary School, Thalassery are all set to pack their bags to visit National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the upcoming summer vacation. It was after the two champs got recognition for their innovative project during the Adi Shankaran Young Scientists Award 2017, that they are NASA-bound.
Meet, A.T. Shinjul and Sanjay Sudan, who will visit NASA and stay there for 15 days. The project titled ‘More debris- more fuel’ was considered among the 3 best projects invented by the young student scientists. It was selected from among 106 projects presented by students from all around the country and also from the UAE.
“The project was highlighted for its timely relevance as the boys of my school have tried to create fuel from plastic waste”, said the school principal Suresh Babu M. He added that the students were confident enough to run the engine of a motor bike, using the fuel they generated from plastic and also food waste. In addition to visiting NASA – and as a bonus a trip to Disneyworld – the students will also get the Adi Shankaran Group of Institution scholarship to pursue further studies.
