The National Museum of Science and Technology (NMST) authorities have decided to provide a financial grant of Tk 61 lakh to 32 educational institutions and science organisations across the country to purchase science materials and organise science competitions.
The decision was taken during the 18th meeting of the Board of Trustees for Science and Technology Development at the NMST Museum with Science and Technology Minister Yafes Osman in the chair on Wednesday.
After the meeting, the minister addressed a science lecture on ‘The Role of Science and Technology in Modern Urban Management’ at the NMST.
Students of Milestone School participated in the event.
Speaking on the occasion, Osman said the awakening of science must be accompanied by the awakening of values to reap the full benefits of science and technology.
“The students have to rise to a great height by becoming wise in the practice of knowledge and science,” he said.
