After the inclusion of Environmental Science in the school curriculum, although educators have been teaching the subject, they have rarely got an opportunity to update their knowledge.
We currently provide information for teachers through the ‘Research’ section of our website. However, in the past an inter-school teachers quiz contest on environment and forests of India organised by Vanashakti, provided teachers from across the city (Mumbai Metropolitan Region) with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the environment.
Details of the January 2011 Quiz Contest:
The contest was held in two phases - preliminary and final rounds. The top two winners of the preliminary round from each school competed in the final round. The winners of the preliminary round will get a certificate of participation and a memento while, the winners in final round will get a cash prize, a certificate and a trophy. The quiz proved to be a good opportunity for performance assessment for the teachers and also provided scope for further enhancement of knowledge. A similar quiz will now be held in January 2012.
