Samarpan Foundation is setting up an 'outdoor laboratory' on its Redhills’ project site.
This outdoor laboratory allows students to have a hands-on experience of environmental sciences.
Currently, students are learning building construction using discarded PET bottle bricks, a column of PET bottles, nylon fishing net and concrete without the conventional steel bars as well as a PET bottle 'honeycombed' wall with non-organic waste packed tightly into the honeycombs.
Not only does this non-organic waste provide excellent insulation, it also gets rid of prodigious amounts of waste which would otherwise pollute our environment. In addition, this project uses organic compost for farming.
Instead of merely visiting and observing, the students are encouraged to actively participate in the construction work, farming and other allied activities.
