‘Caravane de la Science” visiting the Thanacody College’

I was at an Interactive Session on the occasion of the “Caravane de la Science” visiting the Thanacody College.It’s a pleasure when I see students organising and attending such events that will allow them to increase their knowledge in science and develop their young and talented scientific minds. I wish to thank Thanacody College and all stakeholders for hosting this event which I am sure will contribute to strengthening the visibility of the Centre and at the same time promote an interest for Science as an enjoyable activity. I would also like to impress upon the rectors and teachers to motivate their students to participate in the other activities that the Centre will be organising in the future to popularise Science. I wish all the students success as they pursue their passion in Science and Technology. I am confident that they will rise to meet the challenges of the future and be a significant part of our nation’s human capital to realize a prosperous and vibrant nation.
