PHUKET: Rajabhat University is inviting the public to visit its Phuket campus for ‘Science Week 2016’, which runs August 17-19.
The annual exposition of the university’s science education facilities is part of an initiative sponsored by the Ministry of Science and Technology to motivate interest in science subjects.
University students are putting on demonstrations of the institution’s science tech in an edutainment-style format from 8:30am to 4:30pm over the three-day event.
Dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology at the university, Rangsan Polsamak, said last week that the goal of Science Week is to motivate youngsters, students and the general public to learn about new ideas and get hands-on experience with scientific research.
“The more people seek out and gain knowledge of science, the more Thailand’s own technology can be updated and the country can become a trend-setter of innovation that can be integrated into real life,” said the dean.
