" The wind of
technology and science are ready to let India sail to the seas of progress

Sustainability (SOULS) initiative. 16 students of Greenway Modern School,

accompanied by two teachers Mrs. Poonam Makheeja (PGT- computer science) and
Mrs. Heena Devgan. (TGT-computer science). It was a unique one- day
training program at D.A.V Vasantkunj, students learned to assemble their own
solar study lamps and gained skills on soldering, uses of renewable and
non-renewable energy, working of solar panels, PCB and so on.

scientific curiosity of students was piqued towards clean technologies for the
future, by making them "Student Solar Ambassador"

follow. 100 students from various schools including students from our
school lit their self- made solar lamps at the inaugural function, as a
