On 3rd June 2010, BP representatives came to SMK Seafield and gave a presentation to 50 students regarding the Carbon Challenge. They started it off by introducing themselves, their company and the history of it.
After all the introductions, their presenter, Encik Zulkifli Othman wasted no time getting to the main topic which was about carbon footprints and ways to reduce it. During the quiz, the questions and answer choices was projected on a screen and the students had to choose their answers using a small device with buttons that is able to send information to the main computer. Our school managed to score 100% for 2 questions out of 5.
Next, BP conducted a survey with the students to check what students all around the world think about pollution, climate change and global warming. They also taught them how they as individuals can make a difference. The students also learned about the causes and the effects of global warming.
The students have benefited through this program. They all thanked Encik Zulkifli and the other two representatives from BP. BP gave the students some souvenirs: a BP pen and a book about the environment.
What the students say:
Loong Kuan : I felt that the initiative from BP to educate the students about global warming is a very responsible thing to do and we should also follow BP’s example of educating young ones about the environment and global warming.
