CHENNAI: Source segregation and water purification techniques and hygienic cooking practices are being taught using colourful thermocol models at the two-day ehibition on at Ethiraj College.

Children from Corporation schools and college students visited the science exhibition after it was inaugurated by Mayor M. Subramanian on Monday morning. A doll with messy hair demonstrated unsafe cooking methods while her cleaner counterpart had donned a chef’s cap to hold in her tresses.

The model house had two dustbins – one each for biodegradable waste and non-biodegradable waste.

Reverse osmosis and sludge treatment were the other procedures demonstrated.

The ‘Science for Sanitation’ programme was organised at the college, with assistance from the Corporation of Chennai and the Tamil Nadu State and National Councils for Science and Technology. The campaign has provided grants to colleges in the State to conduct awareness programmes in various formats, aiming to present scientific ways of maintaining hygienic and sanitary conditions.

Mr. Subramanian and S. Vincent, Member Secretary, Tamil Nadu State Council for Science and Technology, participated in the inaugural function. The afternoon session of the programme included guest lectures by S.S. Ananthakrishnan and H. Rajamani Suseelan from the Institute of Public Health, Poonamallee, and R. Arunmozhi from Madras Medical College.
