Lourdes Central School organized LCS Science Week-2020 to awaken the scientific temper among the young generation and encourage them to discover new knowledge through scientific methods.
The objectives of this programme were: To inspire young minds to think divergently & To motivate younger generation to take up the career in science, technology and engineering.
It was a beautiful venture from the part of LCS to organise this memorable event under the guidance of Principal Fr Robert D’Souza, Vice Principal Ms Belita Mascarenhas and Ms Linet D Souza the Coordinator for Science and all the Science teachers.
The whole week programmes were meticulously planned and it provided a platform to the students to exhibit their talents, to have an inquisitive mind, to find solution for every question and to widen the knowledge on science.
