Total of 126 students from Bengamuwa secondary school, Vileyaya Kanishta Vidyalaya, Pasgoda Maha Vidyalaya and Dampahala Maha Vidyalaya took part in the event.

Zonal educational director/ Deniyaya, the Principal, and the teaching staff of Bengamuwa Secondary School, highly appreciated our effort as a great service. They further mentioned that this was indeed a great opportunity for the students who are not able to carry out most of the experiments due to the lack of facilities.
