The young scientists, Suhani Jain and Divya Kranthi with Radhika Ma'am

It’s a day to day task for students at CPS, AB to read the international news in the assembly, but for a student to be a part of international news is rare. But CPS, AB’s young scientists made this possible.

Under the guidance of their teacher and mentor, Mrs. Kirtee Bokare, Divya Kranthi and Suhani Jain had been working on a project – Innovative Strategy Using Endophytes for Effective Biocontrol of Insect Pests in Cotton wherein they run a research to look for effective methods to save the cotton crop from falling prey to insects. During the course of their research they conducted experiments which involved the use of Bb, biochar and cow dung to get the best results. Suhani and Divya teamed up almost two years ago to present their model at the CBSE Regional Science Fair. Since then they’ve been on a winning spree. Their hard work and dedication helped them qualify for the international level which was held at Phoenix, Arizona, USA in the month of May, 2016. Suhani and Divya represented Team India at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and competed with students from 75 countries around the world. It was a proud moment for India and Centre Point School, Amravati Road Bypass when the news of Divya and Suhani winning the third award in the Grand Awards category broke. With this remarkable achievement at such a young age the girls quashed many myths and lead by example to show how persistent efforts and a focused and flexible approach can help gain success.

As a token of appreciation and acknowledgement from the School, Principal, Mrs. Radhika Mehra presented cash awards to Divya and Suhani were on 1st July, 2016.    cpsab
