“Caravane de la Science” at Friendship College, Goodlands


I thank the management of Friendship College for its participation in the Caravane de la Science. The main benefits of this programme is to increase awareness and understanding among the community on the important role that Science and Technology plays in our life and hence, aiming at a scientifically literate country.
With the strategy of holding the “Caravane de la science” at schools, we are targeting our young and talented minds students in every location and simultaneously encouraging them to embrace science for a career and for their life. I wish all students all the best as they pursue their passion in Science and Technology. I am confident that they will rise to meet the challenge and be a significant part of our nation’s human capital to realize a prosperous and vibrant nation.
