Mysuru, March 1:- Science Rostrum 2018 and Igniter Inter-Collegiate Competition were held at JSS College for Women, Saraswathipuram here on Wednesday.
Senior scientist of Suttur Agriculture Centre Dr Arun Balamatti inaugurated the programme by igniting a lamp.
“In the time of globalisation and information technology, science is essential for the development of a country. Technological innovations are taking place every day. Students lack information and guidance, which is making it difficult for them to build a better future. The success of students depends on getting the right information. Education institutions should provide their students with communication skills. Real education is to kindle curiosity among human beings to seek an answer. Students have to give importance to the education of life,” he said.
“Girls are facing acute pressure in the global system. You need to have confidence and shun hesitation. Urban development is getting more lands, but education is lagging behind,” said joint director of College Education Department, Mysuru Prof J Poornachandra.
Principal of the college Dr K V Suresh, academic dean Dr H B Suresh, convener of the event H G Pradeep and others were present. (MR/GK).
