Training workshop on Hands on Science launched
Pothashang News Service: Imphal, March 21, 2018: Deputy chief minister Yumnam Joykumar Singh today inaugurated a 4-day residential training workshop on ‘Hands on Science’ at Khuman Lampak Youth Hostel, Imphal.
The training workshop is organised by Manipur Science and Technology Council in association with Vigyan Prasar, Noida of Department of Science and Technology, government of India.
It aims to impart scientific knowledge in the easiest way to school teachers mostly from hill districts of Manipur.
Joykumar said teachers should arouse the interest of students and make them think what science is all about. Thinking, imagination and observation are the basic steps through which we can understand the basic principles of science. Most of the students are good in technology learning but learning pure science are lacking behind. We need to focus on learning pure science, he added.
Students in the valley are good in science and mathematics but most of the students in the hills are lacking behind in these subjects. Therefore, teachers should motivate them to learn these two subjects. Science cannot be taught without the strong base of mathematics, said the minister.
Professor B. N. Das, renowned physicist, said, most of the process in our life is associated with scientific ideas and therefore imparting scientific knowledge and sharing scientific ideas to the younger generation are important. Scientific ideas will come first and after that technology will automatically come for its application.
