Students of the Kapan Branch of the National Polytechnic University of Armenia held their next ecology practical course at Chaarat Kapan’s operation. The course was dedicated to Environmental monitoring efforts. A theory class was followed by a visit of the Geghanush tailing dam accompanied by our Environmental specialists. Students were able to observe ongoing regular water sampling and river flow testing carried out by the specialists of Chaarat Kapan’s Environmental Department and were able to discuss questions during the visit.

Given the strong interest of the students for more practical insights, the positive feedback from the University and our overall cooperation with the community around educational programmes, Chaarat Kapan plans to regularly organise such practical courses and support an effort towards implementing Environmental visits into the university curriculum.
