MADURAI: A six-day festival on ‘nuclear awareness’ will be organised here from February 25 by the Velammal College of Engineering and Technology in association with the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE).
It will feature a three-day workshop on ‘Application of radiation in industry’ along with various competitions. University and college faculty members, research schools, undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students from in and around Madurai can participate in the festival.
The event is intended to create awareness and give an exposure in the societal applications of nuclear science and technology besides to provide an insight into the Indian nuclear programme, a press release from the college said.
The theme of the festival is ‘India’s three-stage nuclear programme.’ While half of the exhibits would come from the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) at Kalpakkam, Tamil Nadu, and Bhaba Atomic Research Centre (BARC), Mumbai, the rest would come from schools and colleges.
Exhibits from various science and technology divisions of the Government will also be displayed. Schools, colleges, non-governmental organisations and teacher training institutes can also participate in the festival.
Interactive sessions would be arranged with scientists. Contests have been arranged for school and college students.
