“Caravane de la Science” visiting Doha Academy


 I was at an Interactive Session on the occasion of the “Caravane de la Science” visiting Doha Academy. Organising the “Caravane de la Science” is indeed a very laudable initiative which encourages our students to consider a career as scientists and researchers and paves the way towards the creation of a technological base for the Mauritian Society. My sincere thanks go to Ministry of Education and Human Resources, the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre and Doha Academy.  I would also like to impress upon the rectors and teachers to motivate your students to participate in such kind of activities. 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.
