When the earthquake alarm sounds in the office, everyone will have the opportunity to leave the building. Farmers are using modern agricultural machinery with artificial intelligence (AI) technology. Smart helmet gives warning in advance to prevent bike accidents. This is not a science fiction fantasy. These are individual projects of small scientists of the country. This is a brief description of the 44th Science and Technology Week by students from all over the country, selected through a competition with 155 such projects.
The fair is being held by the National Science and Technology Museum from yesterday Monday. Around 700 contestants from across the country are participating in this three-day National Science and Technology Week. They are presenting their best inventions in the festival. Along with these innovations, the 7th National Science Olympiad and Science Quiz competition are also being held this year. The stalls have been set up in the National Science and Technology Complex building of the capital on the occasion of the fair.
Two students of Donovan Government Girls High School, Madaripur participated in the ‘Sheikh Russell Smart City’ project. Team leader Sumaiya Rahman said, we are presenting everything of a smart city in our project. This city will have no walls. Home security can be done with sensors without walls. Visually impaired people can go anywhere without any help using technology. There is how to arrange automatic power generation from solar energy. You can turn off the lights and fans of the room from wherever you are. If there is an earthquake, the residents of the smart city will be alerted quickly. There are houses for living in flood water. There are automated biogas projects.
Shariatpur Gosairhat Govt Shamsur Rahman College twelfth grade student Al Amin and Md. Ismail Hussain’s project is titled ‘Solar Electrical Industrial Waste Water Treatment Method’. Barguna Science Society has come up with a project called ‘Thermo Electric’. Project team leader Akil Ahmed said, through the use of thermoelectric, we can directly convert the heat generated by any device into electricity.
Nazira binte Noman, a class 10 student of Scholarshome Girls School and College, Sylhet, made ‘Sanitary Napkins from Kachuripana’. He said, the cost of our invented napkins is much less than the sanitary napkins that he buys from the market. So we brought this napkin.’
This event will end tomorrow Wednesday. Science and Technology Minister Yafes Osman will be the chief guest at the awarding and closing ceremony.
At the same time organizing science olympiad
The Science Olympiad was inaugurated yesterday on the opening day of the National Science and Technology Week. Mohammad Munir Chowdhury, Director General of National Science and Technology Museum inaugurated the Olympiad.
Urging young students to focus on science practice and research, Mohammad Munir Chowdhury said, ‘Being a doctor, researcher or scientist alone is not the purpose of life. Acquiring degrees or knowledge is futile if there is no integrity and ethics in life practice. If there are no honest engineers, honest doctors, honest scientists or honest administrators, the benefits of scientific practice will not be available. There is a lot of talent spread in the remote areas, that talent should be used in innovative ways to prevent environmental pollution, prevent food adulteration and improve living standards and increase productivity.’
