    The Scientific Research Council (SRC), in association with the National Commission on Science and Technology (NCST), will host the second staging of the ‘Science in the Park’ exposition at Emancipation Park, New Kingston, on Thursday, November 27, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    The expo will have over 40 booths that will provide information for businesses, students and the general public. The booths will showcase the latest technologies being used in various sectors, including health, education, security, agriculture, communication and transportation. Special emphasis will be placed on careers in science, technology and innovation.

    On display too will be the work of local inventors and innovators who were recently awarded at the Science, Technology and  Innovation Awards.

    The event forms part of Science and  Technology month activities celebrated during November. It also will highlight the importance of Science, Technology and Innovation (ST&I) as a vehicle for the development of human capital in Jamaica.

    In an interview with JIS News, Director General of NCST, Professor Errol Morrison, said the expo will be a major tool in sensitizing the public, especially students about the role science, technology and innovation play in their daily lives.

    “These are the kinds of opportunities that we need to use to encourage them (students) to take another look at science and technology …and bring to the wider population a consciousness of the kinds of things they can do in their own environment,” Professor Morrison said.
