Kushalnagar, DH News Service:

The national children’s science convention not only develops research attitude among the children but also helps to mould them into future scientists, said eminent writer Prof M R Nagaraj.

The teachers should encourage the students to develop scientific temperament, he advised. He said the teachers should guide their students to prepare quality research papers on the environmental hazards on the earth.
