Mysuru: Ranga Rao Memorial School for Differently Abled (RMSD), run by the NR Foundation, had organised a visit for its students to the city-based Defence Food Research Laboratory (DFRL) of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on the occasion of Children’s Day.

In all, 50 students from class 8 to 10 were given this opportunity to expand their learning boundaries by visiting and observing the findings of the Lab.

DFRL conducts research on a variety of food science and technology topics, including the production of convenience foods, food preservation, nutritional and biochemical evaluation, food safety and food packaging.

Dr. Balakrishna and Lakshman, two DFRL Scientists, explained and facilitated the entire visit to the students of RMSD.

Deepa, a class 9 student, shared her experience on the visit and said, “It was an exciting visit to DFRL where we got to learn about the food industry. We were given the chance to feel the products by touching them and also they gave us a few food products to taste. They were very delicious and as a whole, the visit was very educative and informative.”

Jaanavi, a student of class 8 said, “The school is a home for us and these kinds of activities help us learn with knowledge. I am very thankful to the school for taking us to the Laboratory on Children’s Day. This gives us inspiration to dream higher and achieve our goals.
