Dimapur, Sep. 12 (EMN): The District Education Officer (DEO) of Mon on Sep. 11 conducted district-level science seminar on the topic “Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0: Are we prepared?” at the DEO’s conference hall.

Altogether, 14 schools under Mon district participated in the seminar which was organised by DEO Mon.

Wangmai Walim Konyak, class IX of Sacred Heart School was declared as the winner. She will represent the district at the state-level competition to be held on Sep. 21.

Speaking at the programme, DEO R Zayao Lotha said the Industrial Revolution has both merits and demerits. Some of the demerits, he said are unemployment problems, work demand and unequal distribution of wealth. However, he added that many things brought changes through the Industrial Revolution.

“We are living in the 21st century where everyone has to cop up with this internet world,” he insisted.

He acknowledged the students, who he described as the ‘young scientist students,’ for exhibiting their talent and also appreciated the teachers for guiding them.
