Nuclear Energy Quiz @ SIMT | Quiz Review

Nuclear energy is a clean and pollution-free means to generate electricity and India must actively encourage its use to keep pace with the rising energy demand. This was the consensus of students after an interactive quiz session on energy scenario in India. The programme was held at Sevdie Institute of Management and Technology (SIMT) on Tuesday.
A short animation film titled ‘Meet Mr Budhiya’ which portrays through comic characters the change of heart among villagers who have fears about a nuclear power plant, was screened before a group of more than 100 engineering students of SIMT. After the screening, a few questions were asked about energy and those students who gave correct answers were given prizes.
The questions included teasers such as the use of radiation in daily life, in agriculture and medical care; comparison of nuclear energy with other non-conventional forms as solar and wind energy and the comparatively lesser damage to the environment in production of nuclear energy.
