On 18th June, 2011, under the service-project program of Brilliant Stars School - where the students regularly engage in researching and finding solutions to various problems that are currently inflicting their Udaipur community – an internet video conference call between the school’s students and Dr. T.S. Satyanarayan (Malaria expert, Bangalore) took place. The students are currently conducting a service project on Malaria and the ways to eradicate it from their community. To help them with their investigation, PCI (Pest Control India Ltd., a leader in the pest control industry) organized for one of it’s experts - Dr. T.S. Satyanarayan - to consult with the school children as they needed some professional advice on the topic.
Interaction with experts by students is a part of their service project program. In the past too, the school has organized for students to interact with leading local experts during projects such as ‘Swine Flu’, ‘Plantations’, ‘Medicine Drive’, etc. However, this was the first time that the students interacted with an expert from outside the State. One of the purposes behind the video conference was to introduce students to cutting-edge communications programs and teach them how to use it.
