In this program, the students have been introduced with Module 4: Fabrication of Water Filter from Charcoal led by Dr. Alya Naili Rozhan and Br. Ahmad Abdul Mun’im Ismail as the representative from Dr. Hadi Purwanto’s team and AMSERU. In the demonstrations and workshops, the students were divided into group of 3 and assisted by facilitators from AMSERU members and volunteers from MMESA. In conjunction with these modules, the students had executed the experiments; heat waste wooden materials to create char coal, observed the char under microscope and watched the demonstration of water filter using the produced charcoal. After the experiments, the students were asked to answer some simple questions and complete the report of the experiment for Module 4. The students were actively participated during the experiment and were excited with the results.
After the experiment for Module 4 was completed, a simple closing ceremony was held in conjunction with the completion of the four modules for the Green School Module Program. Throughout this program, 4 modules had been introduced; Module 1 – Biodegradable plastic, 2 – Fabrication of Plastic from Starch, 3 – Upcycling Used Cooking Oil to Soap and 4 – Charcoal as Water Filter. Dr. Ahmad Zahirani as the Head of Department of Manufacturing and Materials Engineering, Dr. Norshahida Sarifuddin as the Coordinator for AMSERU, Dr. Maisarah Tajuddin from Green Waste Selangor (GWS) and Cikgu Hazril as the representative from STB also attended the ceremony.
