Mysore, May 6 UNI | 3 months ago

In order to instill aspiration towards science, the Central Food Technology Research Institute (CFTRI) has organised a summer school programme for government high school students hailing from Mysore district.

A drift from careers in science, especially in the rural areas triggered this program. Generation of inquisitiveness and scientific curiosity was one of the main objective, a release said here today.

Nineteen students from five government high schools participated in this unique initiative. Food and transportation were provided ensuring no financial burden was imposed on the students.
