The Mazingira challenge
Mazingira is a Swahili word which means the surrounding or in environmental science, the word simply means (environment). This challenge is a yearly internal event and draws participants (students) from all four Departments in the School of Environmental Studies i.e Environmental Science, Environmental Resource Conservation (ENS/ERC), Environmental Planning and management (EPM), Environmental Community Development (ECD) and Environmental Education (EED), it’s organized by the Kenyatta university student’s organization (KUSA) through the Deans Office School of Environmental Studies. Below are some of the photos taken during the event.
The aim of this challenge was to bring the students together for a quiz competition, which is a great environmental tool used to help students to maintain interest in the topic of discussion through stimulating questions and providing a basis for more in-depth investigation of the issues being raised in the competition. It also enables the students to think from different angles or simply ‘think out of the box ‘’about environmental issues. This year’s event was held in room 12 at Business students and Services Center (BSSC) and attracted over 100 students drawn from the four departments of the school. Students who answered the questions correctly were awarded trophies after being vetted by the judges present.
