The virtual competition on “Best Out of Waste” was organized by APJ Abdul Kalam Science Society,
K. R. Mangalam University on 24th December 2020 wherein more than 20 students participated and explored ways to develop new things out of waste material.
The aim was to develop the sense for nurturing the ecosystem through some creative activities like “Best out of Waste”. In today’s world reuse, reduce and recycling of
waste materials play an important role. There are a lot of things around that are labelled as dump and every person can use these waste materials for useful purposes.
