MUMBAI, JULY 25, 2017: Students from standard seven of St. Joseph's High School, Wadala visited the Science Train Exhibition, which is the first ever mobile-science exhibition, held at Mumbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus on July 20.

 

The 16-coach train stationed on platforms 10 and 11 was fitted with exhibitions on various themes, including biodiversity, wildlife conservation and temperature change. It gave students the opportunity to conduct experiments and participate in various environment-themed games.

 

The Department of Science and Technology organised the novel event to raise awareness about climate change. Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu had inaugurated the exhibition in New Delhi on February 19.

 

The students from St. Joseph's alongside their teachers Mansi Chavan and Manali Bhanushali reached the iconic train station at 9:45 am. They were taught concepts like biotechnology, diversity and adaptations. It was a knowledgeable experience for the young lads.
