“Caravane de la Science”- Imperial College



I was at an Interactive Session on the occasion of the visit of the Caravane de la Science at Imperial College. Imperial College deserves our appreciation for the constant improvements it has brought to its infrastructure and teaching facilities during its fifty years of existence. I wish to thank the management and staff of the Imperial College for hosting today’s event, the Traffic Branch of the Mauritius Police Force, Fire Services, Ministry of Environment and Mauritius Oceanography Institute for their participation this morning.  I would also like to make an appeal to the rectors and teachers as well as the parents to motivate our young students to participate in such kind of activities.
