Visit to TASAR
On 4th of August 2018 Students of class VI & VII of Taurian World School were taken to Central Tasar Research and Training Institute, Nagri. The main objective of conducting a field trip for students is to reinforce experiential and contextual learning.
Field trips are a way of enhancing classroom learning by making real world connections. The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and their classmates. However, teachers and students advocate – and studies indicate – that field trips are a key component of school instruction; they broaden the educational experience and make a subject more relevant.
The main objectives of the trip were as below:
§ Motivating the farmers to plant high yielding mulberry varieties to increase income and productivity.
§ Imparting training in mulberry cultivation, silkworm rearing and silk reeling.
§ Assist in procurement of improved rearing equipment and construction of separate rearing house.
§ Ensure supply of disease free silkworm seeds.
§ Enhance skill of farmers for increased cocoon productivity and to prevent silkworm diseases.
§ Provide assistance to establish drip irrigation system in mulberry gardens.
§ Assist sericulturists and reelers to dispose of their cocoon, silk etc., in regulated cocoon markets /silk exchange
§ Facilitate sericulturists to adopt new technologies developed.
