In a bid to discover brilliant and artistic students in the field of science, Neander International School hosted pupils from Primary schools within the Lagos Island last week.
The initiative was geared towards promoting students’ interest in mathematics and basic science which most students view as difficult subjects.
In an opening remark made by the Principal, Meander International School, Mr. Idris Agbaje, he stated; “Considering the fact that we are now in the era of science and technology, Neander International School strongly holds the view that this generation cannot thrive well without science and mathematics subjects, hence, the need to create awareness and the importance of these subjects amongst these future leaders.”
Agbaje also reiterated that the aim of the Science Day is to stimulate the interest of learners in the sciences and mathematics which will help equip them with a pride of place in the emerging science and technology driven world.
“There must be the need by every student to embrace these subjects and find meaningful ways of doing well in them in the future,” Agbaje said.
Part of the activities that featured on the school’s Science Day include quiz competitions for the invited schools after which each class in the school had a display of scientific projects where they explained the concepts behind them. Some of the projects showcased include Solar-powered car, projected to reduce the cost of running cars in Africa, Glove Torch that can be used at night and Wind-powered electricity generation station among others.
