ECOSF has been promoting and popularizing Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) through its core programme as well as by developing cooperation between organizations and the Not for Profit Organizations within the ECO Region and with international organizations.
In this respect, cooperation between a strong partner of ECOSF- CAST China has been engaged to support the under construction Science Center of TDF in Karachi. To discuss the cooperation in person, President ECOSF Dr. Manzoor Hussain Soomro and a two member team from CAST- China visited the existing interactive Science Centre of TDF on January 22, 2020.The team comprising of Ms.Yang Feng from the International Cooperation division of Children and Youth Science Center of CAST (CYSCC) and Dr. Ye Zhaoning, a science curriculum developer and STI trainer, visited the TDF science center which has around 70 exhibits. The visitors were given a round of the interactive exhibits followed by discussion on possible cooperation.
It was agreed in principle that TDF will formally write to the China Museum of Science and Technology of CAST in Beijing with copy to ECOSF and CAST colleagues requesting for the technical support. The ECOSF will then follow-up and coordinate with CAST for the possible technical support.
