‘Caravane de la science - Ebene SSS Girls ‘


It was indeed a great pleasure to associate myself with the opening of the ‘Caravane de la Science’ at Ebene SSS Girls.  The Caravane de la Science is an innovative activity launched by the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre and my ministry, ministry of Tertiary Education Science Research and Technology, back in 2010 with the aim of triggering the interest of secondary school students.  Since then the ‘Caravane de la Science’ has already visited more than 25 locations in Mauritius and Rodrigues. Science and Technology play a predominant role in our life and with increasing technological advancement, our life will be governed by Science and Technology.
