I was at an Interactive Session on the occasion of the “Caravane de la Science” visiting the Droopnath Ramphul College. We started the ‘Caravane de la Science’ in June 2010 to go to schools and public places to create greater awareness of Science and Technology. The main benefits of this programme will be an increased awareness and understanding among the community on the important role that Science and Technology plays in our life. My sincere thanks go to Ministry of Education and Human Resources, the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre, the Droopnath Ramphul State College. I would also like to impress upon the rectors and teachers to motivate their students to participate in such kind of activities. I wish all students all the best as they pursue their passion in Science and Technology.
