Assistant Professor Asim Samejo, briefing about the competition, said, “Gone are the days when the parents wanted to make their children doctors and engineers. But now we have to produce scientists, who can help introduce various technologies that could facilitate today’s busy lives. The event has been organised to bring professionals and students with potential on one platform in order to motivate them to opt for modern sciences also instead of pursuing the medical or engineering profession alone.”

He further said, “We have already wasted much of our precious time, and now we must resolve to produce more scientists to make Pakistan a prosperous country.”
