I was amazed by the striking Green building of the college and the ambiance of the vicinity.
After we reached the school we met Eshwar whose commendable work to organize the event in the college awed me.. his work plan for the day which he was eliciting to the volunteers was well fabricated and the volunteers were all assigned a particular role to play.Later we had a semi formal induction program for the new volunteers where Karun and me shared our experiences with Sahaya followed by Sree ram's speech.
Soon the buses arrived at around 1:30 from gowdevalli school with the children oozing with enthusiasm and excitement.The students were divided into four batches and were accompanied by the volunteers to various labs and the library. The volunteers did an impressive job in presenting the complex engineering labs to the school children by fitting in their shoes and relating them to day to day situations in their life.The children were keen in learning about the labs and the volunteers patiently answered their queries. It was encouraging to see some of the lab faculty also interacting with children.
I believe that this field trip is an attempt from Sahaya that kindled a passion for engineering and other higher studies among the students and this spark if fanned in the right direction could spread its flames and engulf more students to aspire to MAKE IT BIG!!!!
