The state Science and Technology and Biotechnology department will come up with booklets and will circulate them so that common people get a clear understanding of the basics of science and shelve superstitious thoughts from their minds. We are alsotrying to come out with publicity materials to dispel superstitions among the people,” said Barun Kumar Ray, Principal Secretary of the Science and Technology department, at the programme to mark the occasion of 27th West Bengal State Science and Technology Congress, 2020. A total of 165 scientific abstracts had been selected from three Regional Science Congresses (RSC) for participating in the State Science Congress by esteemed judges, on the basis of presentation at the RSCs. The Science Congress is held to encourage and provide a forum for scientific research especially for the young scientists and synergise new ideas with societal needs. It provides a platform for young researchers for dissemination of information, regarding new ideas in science and technology.
