A majority of parents in Andhra Pradesh tend to admit their children in engineering institutions, thinking of providing a bright future for them. But statistics show that only 30 percent of students are employed after their studies.
“We must communicate to people that there is a future in science field as well. In order to do that, we will ensure students interact with scientists at the annual science congress” director of centre for cellular and molecular biology (CCMB) & president of AP akademi of sciences Dr. Ch Mohan Rao said.
This year’s annual science congress will be held at the Acharya Nagarjuna University (ANU) in Guntur from November 14 - 16. More than 800 delegates, including scientists, professionals, and researchers are expected to participate in the annual convention held by AP akademi of sciences.
Speaking at a press conference about the fifth annual convention and AP Science Congress, Dr. Mohan emphasised that such events where children can interact with the scientists and researchers are very important as their interest begins to mould at an early age.
