NBioS Outreach Program 2016

NUST BioReach Society (NBioS), in collaboration with NUST Administration and Publishing and Student Affairs (PSA) Directorate, hosted an Outreach program for students of Al-Falah Public Secondary School from District Ghotki, Sindh, on February 22, 2016.

Visits of Atta-ur-Rahman School of Applied Biosciences (ASAB), School of Civil and Electrical Engineering (SCEE) and School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering (SMME) were scheduled as part of the tour. The Outreach Program aimed to familiarize the students with the opportunities provided by University, and to give them a brief career counseling session regarding the options available for them at NUST.

The event was inaugurated by representatives of NUST BioReach, ASAB faculty and administration, welcoming the students and their Principal to NUST.

There was an introductory session held in ASAB Auditorium, where president NUST BioReach society Miss Maarej Khan gave the students a brief overview of NUST, its campuses and departments, extra-curricular activities held by various student-run societies and clubs and information about the admission process.

Students were then divided into two groups and shown some of the labs, namely Plant Virology Lab and Nano-biotechnology Lab. The lab instructors gave them a short demo on the purposes of the researches conducted over there. A trip to the Laboratory Animal House followed, where students were shown lab mice, rabbits and chickens.

The next department was NUST Institute of Civil Engineering (NICE), where another introductory session was held, this time more focused on Civil and Environmental Engineering and its different aspects.

The students were also led to the library where they made themselves right at home exploring the shelves.  Upon seeing their enthusiasm, a few booklets and brochures were distributed as souvenirs.

The Robotics lab of SMME was undoubtedly the most fascinating one for the students. They clustered eagerly around the models, asking questions while the humanoid robot (official name) was being calibrated. A short demonstration of the robot walking and talking was met with extreme excitement. The visit was concluded by a trip to the CNC lab that contained a 3-D printer and onwards to Department of Manufacture where students were shown the tools and equipment that are used to build various parts.

Nearing the inevitable completion of the event, refreshments were provided as a hi-tea in Centre of International Peace and Stability (CIPS). It was followed by an interactive session where students and executives mingled together, building rapport and conducting cross cultural exchanges.
