Berhampur, Nov 22 (LocalWire) Students of government-run Industrial Training Institute (ITI) have made models of popular Hollywood characters with vehicle scraps.
ITI authorities displayed a character of popular film “Terminator” to a three-member Singapore expert team who visited the institute here on Tuesday.
The titular character model of six-foot height and around 80-kg weight was made by the students of the institute with using the scraps of automobiles.
Similarly, the visiting foreign team also saw another character of American science action film “Predator”, which is under construction.
The model is around 14-feet height, while the scrap materials of 700-kg are being used to build it.
The students of different disciplines took around a fortnight to make these two models using nuts, bolts, chains, rods and other parts of automobiles.
“The model of Predator is in finishing stage and it will take another one week to complete,” said Principal Rajat Kumar Panigrahy.
Members of Singapore-based ITE Education Services (ITEES) visited ITI to evaluate the skill development programme in the institute.
ITEES is a subsidiary of Singapore’s prestigious Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
Odisha Skill Development Authority (OSDA) had signed memorandum of understanding (MoU) with ITEES last year for skill development in the state.
The team also visited the scrap museum of the institute where a number of products, made out of scrap materials were displayed.
The institute is generating around 1000-kg of different scrap materials during their particle period in every year.
“We have decided to utilize these waste materials in proper manner without causing environmental hazards. At the same time, it will help students come up with innovative ideas and thereby help develop their skills,” Panigrahy said.
Rajesh Prabhakar Patil, CEO, OSDA, who was accompanied with the Singapore team, suggested the models be displayed in public places like parks to make people aware of recycling of waste materials.
After the “Predator” model is completed, we have decided to set it up on the ITI campus for public viewing,” said the principal.
