Bhubaneswar:  A student of DAV Public School has brought laurels to Odisha by winning the Best Participant Award at the 105th Indian Science Congress held at Manipur University in Imphal recently.

According to reports, Prisita Preetam, a class XI student of the Chandrasekharpur-based DAV Public School bagged the Best Participant Award for her innovative project on ‘Aadhar-linked Dustbin’ at the Indian Science Congress which was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on March 16.

Many eminent scientists from the country and abroad had appreciated Prisita’s project on ‘Aadhar-linked Dustbin’ at the highest science forum. They along with the jury had said that her Aadhaar-linked dustbin design can be useful for the country and can support Prime Minister’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan mission.

The DAV student came-up with the unique project to encourage more and more people to use dustbins to dispose of garbage and create alerts for the civic administration in case these disposal bins are not cleared on time.

She had used common materials like an integrated circuit, Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET), bipolar junction triode, capacitor and a 9-volt battery to complete the dustbin.

Her idea is to link the Aadhaar numbers of the residents in a special device which will add value points after the garbage is disposed off in a specific dustbin. The dustbin equipped with a sensor will detect disposal of waste and then prompt a command for Aadhaar biometrics verification.

Once the fingerprints match successfully, the person disposing of the waste will get reward points which will be sent through a message and also get recorded.
