The School participated in Open/Career Day that was held at the University of Guyana, Turkeyen Campus on February 15, 2008. The students of the School displayed the exhibits, some of which consisted of their work, and interacted with visitors to the School’s booth.
Saw dust models of the Guiana Shield and the landscape of the Rupununi were displayed along with rock samples as students explained the differences in elevation and the formation of the different features. Posters of career opportunities within the school were mounted and experiments showing condensation and water quality testing were demonstrated and explained by the students. A slide show of pictures from the recent Lethem Field Exercise was used to show vegetative and geomorphological changes in Guyana and social activities of Guyana’s hinterland communities.
In addition, pictures of Earth Day and World Environment Day activities and posters of key environmental issues such as deforestation, species extinction and global warming, and abstracts of final year students’ project were mounted.read more
