All Goa Science Fair 2017

“A fact acquires its true and full value only through the idea which is developed from it.” – Justus Von Liebig

No statement is truer than this. Every theory or law you study in Science has an experimental proof supporting it, whether it be a working or a still setup. In fact, a theory or law is only considered so after having been proved experimentally. This shows that innovation and inventions are the stepping stones to progress in society.

All Goa Science Fair 2017, organized by the SPIE Student Chapter of National Institute of Technology Goa, under Laser Mission 10x (or LMTx), reaches out to the school students of Goa at large and helps them identify their potential in innovative thinking and interest in Science and Technology . It also inspires them to go ahead in this field as they are the building blocks of a progressive society.
