To enforce discovery and innovation, student will be encourage the full use of these recycled resources in daily life. This enhanced learning platform will facilitates students to explore, discover and understand clearly the role and importance of chemistry in sustainable life, how informed decisions could be made with respect to the use of food waste, how to tackle food waste in terms of reduction at source, reuse and recycling, and turning into useful resources.
