Mr. Mongkolnimit Auacherdkul, Director and Manager of Public and Government Affairs, Esso (Thailand) Public Company Limited, presented a check for 1,900,000 baht to Mr. Sakorn Chanapaitoon, Acting Director of the National Science Museum in support of programs and activities that provide science learning opportunities to youth beyond the classroom.
The activities include the “Science Caravan,” which travels upcountry to schools in remote areas with a variety of exhibitions, laboratory kits, and science shows; the planetarium and movie dome at the National Science Museum; NSM’s monthly publication which features fascinating science articles, including a column on science in the movies; and national science teachers’ seminars which also involve efforts to promote energy literacy.
“Science is all around us. Apart from what the school offers, we are committed to providing outside-of-school contexts for the youth nationwide. First, we simplify complicated scientific concepts. Then, we make them accessible for young people including those living in remote areas as we promote equal accessibility to scientific resources,” said Mr.Sakorn.
Mr. Mongkolnimit added, “We have supported the NSM in their efforts to promote science learning projects for 5 years. With the same mission of advancing science education, we believe that these innovative activities will engage youth with science learning, which serves as a prime factor in personal success and drives national competitiveness.”
