Students of Shiv Nadar School Noida conduct lung capacity test

"I count everything. Even numbers, odd numbers, multiples of 10. I count the ticks of the clock i count the tocks of the clock I count the lines between the lines on a sheet of paper. I count the broken beats of my heart I count my pulse and my blinks and the number of tries it takes to inhale enough oxygen for my lungs. I stay like this I stand like this I count like this until the feeling stops. Until the tears stop spilling, until my fists stop shaking, until my heart stops aching. There are never enough numbers." ― Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me

NOIDA , NOVEMBER 09 : At a time when the air quality index (AQI) in Delhi NCR is at its worst, at around 450 on a scale of 500, grade six and nine students of Shiv Nadar School Noida (a not-for-profit initiative of the Shiv Nadar Foundation in K12 education) have initiated a drive to scientifically address the specific issue of air pollution.  They have worked on developing an innovative air quality monitoring mechanism and have conducted lung capacity test to demonstrate the respiratory deterioration caused by pollution.

Students have also created a cost-effective prototype of air filter model and air humidifiers. This air filter model is equipped to remove solid pollutants like emission from products like paints, burning fuel, construction rubble as well as allergens like pollens and molds.
On the innovative efforts of the students Ms Shashi Banerjee, Principal, Shiv Nadar School Noida said, “Air pollution is a threat to the society’s health at large and the situation in Delhi NCR is getting worse day by day.

Given this our students and teachers came up with a well-thought out experiment to spread awareness among people about the alarming level of air pollution due to burning of crackers and solutions to help curb and monitor air pollution.This was done by showing the effect of the same on our lungs.”

Yeah, you're right about having entire rooms full of film and photos… in that Sydney Mines house I have a darkroom, I have boxes of film and home movie footage… I have a few projectors, I have piles of Kodachrome slides… I like photographs. The world is always running away from society and the only way to keep the stuff that's happened in the past is by taking photographs, I can keep memories of things alive with photographs," Alecto responded. "People say that a time machine can't be invented, but they've already invented a device that can stop time, cameras are the world's first time machines… The steel mill, the coal mines, the train tracks, the smog in the sky, I've been able to rescue it on super-8 and Kodachrome, and no one can remediate those photographs, I can keep them as long as I want to." ― Rebecca McNutt, Smog City
