Principal director school education, Shanavas C stated that it was the responsibility of teachers to create interest in the students to study however, he lamented that this did not happen in the state.

Addressing the people at the state level students’ virtual science seminar and exhibition 2020-2021 result declaration programme organised by Department of School Education (DoSE) here, on Wednesday, Shanavas said the importance of math and science was more important than what was imagined perhaps because of the phobia.

He regretted that unfortunately the teachers were not able to instil confidence into the students to get rid of the phobia and said such competitions would help students build confidence in developing an interest in math and science.

Shanavas hoped that the award would be an inspiration for students to take up math and science with more interest and sincerity.

He informed that the ministry approved to install 110 nichals laboratories in the state and was confident that the state would foresee more doctors and engineers. Shanavas also appealed to the department of technical education to introduce more courses in engineering.

Panel of judges, Kohima Science College Jotsoma assistant professor, Dr. Limatemjen in his brief address said the performance of students was satisfactory which indicated the sincerity of the teachers in moulding the students.

He was positive that such competitions would help develop scientific temperament among the students and hoped to have more interactions with students if the situation improves.

Deputy director and nodal officer of science seminar and exhibition, Limadangit Jamir in his closing remark thanked the panel of judges and said that the pandemic had compelled the department to conduct the seminar and exhibition virtually.

He was hopeful to conduct the event in a bigger manner and sent the students in a larger platform outside the state.

In the seminar event, the competition was held under the topic “novel COVID-19 threat in future: prospects and challenges” wherein Lomunu Kweho of Mezhur Higher Secondary School Kohima emerged as winner.

Herola A Sangtam of Saramati View Modern High School Kiphire and Mangshizenla from Town higher secondary school Mokokchung occupied the second position.

In the state level virtual science exhibition 2020-21 exhibition held under the topic “scientific solution for challenges in life”, Thsipongla and Khole Sangtam of Saramati View Modern High School Kiphire was declared as winner while Amon Dey of Model School Mon and Edirenla of Fernwood School Kohima secured second and third place respectively.
