A National Science Day program was organized by District Education Office (DEO), Kiphire under the theme ‘Communicating Science for All’, on April 13, at Hopongkyu Memorial Hall, Kiphire.

Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Kiphire, M. Shayung Phom, speaking at the program, congratulated the office of DEO Kiphire for organizing the National Science Day, and pointed out that such events give students an opportunity to not only be consumers, but thinkers and inventors as well.

Addressing students and participants from 11 Schools, the DC stated “Science is one of the most important subjects a student can learn because of its relevance to our lives and its capacity to apply these vital life-skills to everyday activities. These skills help students to generate ideas, make decisions and use evidence to understand key issues.”

He was optimistic that students from Kiphire will contribute towards the growth of humanity.

Commending the students from various schools for coming up with innovative ideas and presentations, the DC encouraged them to think beyond what they had presented because, he stated, “science is a subject involving reasoning, so one should strive to achieve excellence.”

Speaking as guest speaker, Renny Wilfred, Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC), Kiphire, spoke on the theme ‘Communicating Science for All.’ He stated “Science is everywhere in today’s world. It is a part of our daily lives from cooking and gardening, to recycling and comprehending the daily weather report, to reading a map and using a computer.”

Encouraging the students to develop a spirit of curiosity, Wilfred reminded them that everything from chairs to the pen, and everything people use, have been invented by science. “Science is everywhere. You just need eyes to see and ask the right questions” he stated.

Drawing attention to the rapid advancements in technology, Wilfred told the young students that their future will probably be filled with leaps in technology that can not be imagined now. He added that they also had a responsibility to contribute their ideas to this future of humanity.

Moving on to other subjects, Wilfred reported that the first garbage decomposing plants in  Kiphire would be ready soon for every ward of Kiphire Town. He invited student participants from Loyala Higher Secondary School, Kiphire (who had given a presentation on Vermicomposting) to be a part of the program. 

Observing a need to build public speaking confidence in students, the ADC requested the DEO of Kiphire to select five students from every school to be trained in public speaking skills. 

Delivering a vote of thanks, DEO, Deenabandhu Panda stated that the objective of the National Science Day program was to foster a spirit of inquiry, help students come up with innovative ideas to drive society forward and propel students towards scientific study. 

On the occasion, Saramati View Modern High School was declared winners of the Science Exhibition category. Chumliba R, of Loyala Higher Secondary School won the Essay Competition; and Alingla T. Sangtam of Saramati View Modern School won the Painting Competition. 

The program was chaired by Yanglikokpong. El Beth High School presented a special number, and a vote of thanks was delivered by Kekhaho Achumi, V/P GHSS, Kiphire.
