Our Chitosan team won at the state level and qualified for Nationals in Science research. Our students went about making bioplastic from prawn shells which would substitute plastic and help solve major waste management issue with regard to non bio gradable substances. The myriad application of Chitosan based bioplastic which include – fast biodegradability rate, anti microbial property, anti mosquito breeding property made the project very challenging and helped them win the state level competition.
Sustainable application of Chitosan with emphasis on bioplastic and controlled mosquito breeding which got selected for Nationals was defended by:
- Soham Shastri – 9D
- Arnav Sawant – 8A
The other team members include Arya.S (9B), Ahmad.K (9D) and Moin.H(9A)
