Need for more innovators

THE number of students entering the science stream in schools is not encouraging, says Fiji National University vice-chancellor Dr Ganesh Chand.

Dr Chand said as a nation there must be strong emphasis on science and it was time for stakeholders to put their minds and hands together in addressing the issue.

Works, Transport and Public Utilities Minister Captain Timoci Natuva said parents and students must not be daunted by the technicalities of the science world as the beauty of engineering, science and technology was the innovative skill that one developed in the process.

"We need innovators in our national workforce, we need innovators in all sectors of our communities and we need innovators in our schools and homes," Captain Natuva said.
