The intellectual community and the general public are hereby invited to the lecture no.1 of the Science Nigeria Lectures 2017 which comes under the distinguished chairmanship of His Excellency, Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, the Honourable Minister of Science and Technology, and holds Wednesday July 12, 2017 at the Management Science Hall, University of Abuja, by 10am prompt.
The Science Nigeria Lectures is an effort towards not only promoting the works and contributions of Nigerian scientists, but also in interfacing them with the Nigerian public. The lecture strives to promote public understanding of science, inculcate the much-needed scientific culture in the lives of Nigerians, and at the same time, generate and sustain interest in the sciences in public domain. Through these lectures, many become aware of the exploits of Nigerian scientists in the global scientific arena. Again, through these lectures, many young people in the Nigerian society become not only inspired in pursuing careers sciences, but also in making enduring contributions in them.
The Science Nigeria Lectures is also another way of celebrating Nigerian scientists who have had a minimum of 50 years of outstanding research contributions in the sciences, and as such, making them stand as role models for generations following. It is a way in which these distinguished scientists give to science and the society at large, the benefits of their experience and impressions. It is indeed a celebratory intellectual harvest.
