So what’s this all about?
The National Science Week (NSW) is a vibrant expression of the cultural importance of science and technology of a nation. The aim of the NSW is to engage the public and showcase how science & technology provide solutions that transform our daily lives.
It gives young scientists, inventors and researchers a chance to interact closely and discuss science with their peers and the general public.
The importance of NSW is to help youth develop 21st century skills, with focus on scientific knowledge, creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving and teamwork through the enhancement of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programmes.
The main objective of the 8th National Science Week is to provide a forum to showcase and engage stakeholders in Research, Science Technology and Innovation (RST&I) as a contribution towards building partnerships and transforming society.
