PES Day Celebration: NSU SB Chapter

On 20th of April, IEEE North South University PES Student Branch Chapter implemented the first PES RES for Kids Project in Bangladesh by organising a colouring competition named “Colouring a Renewable Tomorrow” at a Kindergarten school. This project was a part of the Global PES Day Celebration by IEEE NSU PES SBC. The project focused on creating awareness among the kids about renewable energy and its different sources.

Altogether, 64 kids took part in this competition with unparalleled excitement and enthusiasm. The team provided the colouring pages and the participants were judged based on their colouring skills, vision and creativity. After the competition, there was a brief workshop where the kids enjoyed animated videos on renewable energy and its sources. In the end, the best nine were given prizes and all the participants were given certificates.
