By Phares Mutembei | June 13th 2015
Young people should be encouraged to do science subjects as a means of tackling a number of challenges, Council of Governors Chairman Peter Munya says.
Munya says science can be useful in eliminating food insecurity, security and environmental degradation. Speaking when he opened this year's National Science and Engineering Fair at Kaaga Girls High School, the Meru County Governor said Kenya's Vision 2030 is hinged on education of young people.
"Science, technology and innovation are critical to the realisation of Vision 2030. Education is expected to provide the foundation of science, technology and innovation to young people, to help them become problem solvers. Already we have seen the benefit of applied technology in the area of mobile applications that has revolutionised banking for the common mwananchi," Munya said.
