Promoting the creativity and ingenuity of young minds in science and technology, JAAGO Foundation organised its annual science fair on Saturday at a Dhaka hotel -- showcasing 22 projects from its 11 digital schools across the country.
Muhammed Aziz Khan, Founder and Chairman of Summit Group, inaugurated the fair at Hotel Bengal Blueberry in Gulshan-2. Sheldon Yett, UNICEF Representative to Bangladesh, was present at the event as the special guest, alongside Martin Holtmann, IFC Country Manager for Bangladesh.
At the fair, Khan reiterated his message as the first Bangladeshi in UNICEF’s International Council that the Covid-19 pandemic was the most extensive disruption to education in history. “The greatest contribution philanthropists can make is to get children to learn again to help secure their future,” he said at the event.
Sheldon Yett, UNICEF Representative to Bangladesh, encouraged the students to keep learning, listening, and continue asking questions. "Through this process, we unlock the true potential of the human mind -- and I believe one day, I will see many of you in Stockholm at the Nobel Prize ceremony," he said.
