Dr. Pichet Durongkaveroj, Minister of Science and Technology highlights that the reform strategy related to raising awareness and human development in science and technology, is the key for driving national economy. This is because scientific thinking was a part of reasoning and can be integrated with many disciplines. It can be started at early ages, using hands-on science camps and activities. It begins with the exhibition, “Fun Science: NSM Kids Zone” presented by National Science Museum (NSM), made for 3-10 years old kids. The exhibition imitates real-life situation and settings.
