Creative thoughts are a must for the growth of science and scientific education, scientist C.N.R. Rao has said.

He was interacting with select students from the State as part of a three-day conference on ‘Emerging frontiers in chemical sciences’ at Farook College here on Sunday.

Prof. Rao, who heads the scientific advisory council to the Prime Minister, said the best of research works happened when scientific observations met independent thinking. Farook College principal E.P. Imbichikoya was present.

There were seven sessions on the second day of the conference. The participants were later taken to nearby tourist destinations. It was followed by cultural programmes presented by students of Farook College.

The conference will conclude on Monday.
