Udgam School launched the global event – Hour of Code 2017 this year with a plan to engage the entire school. As a part of Kick Off assembly, a special theme event on 21st Century needs i.e. Sustainable Development Goals & Technology was held in the Auditorium connecting Class X students to Ms. Meenakshi Uberoi –British Council Guest Speaker, Microsoft Innovative Educator Fellow , Skype Master Teacher and founder of De Pedagogics from Gurgaon.
The event was launched by Mugdha Chaturvedi’s Speech, followed by Aayushi Sharma as Planet Earth & Adrija Banerjee as Robot talking about the impact of Sustainable Development Goals by United Nations & Technology. The event became more interesting by a SDG Tech Talk Show conducted by Students of Class X – Mohal Rajyaguru, Aaditya Kolte, Adrija Banerjee, Aayushi Sharma and Mugdha, discussing about which one is to be prioritized – SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) or Technology!
The conclusion that technology itself is the best tool to achieve Sustainable Development goals was proved effectively by Ananya Kumar, Sanya Mendiratta , Hetali Mithani & Anushka Dhannawat, by showcasing their Computer Project HTML website based on research, actual action plan & implementation to achieve SDG- LIFE ON LAND. They visited KANKARIA ZOO and stepped ahead to make a small difference in animal life. The presentation by Hetali & Anushka about their initiative & interaction with slum people also made the listeners emotional.
