I proceeded to the launching of a ‘Science Fun Day’ at CEDEM (CENTRE D'EDUCATION ET DE DEVELOPPEMENT POUR LES ENFANTS MAURICIENS) organised by the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre in collaboration with my ministry. The RGSC team is there to impart scientific knowledge to our young people through a number of activities which I have no doubt the young children of CEDEM will benefit. They will have lots of fun activities that have been brought up for them .My sincere thanks go to Officers of the CEDEM and the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre for organising today’s event. I am convinced that today’s activity will have a long lasting impact on them and specially the kids so that when they are back in their routine life, they will play and investigate more on issues related to science.
