The expo continues at the Multi-purpose hall until today, when the team will be visiting two other schools outside Honiara.

Mr. Roddie who is Chief guest at the show says students should know how it will shape their career paths in future, and not only enjoy watching the exhibitions.

He says unfortunately in the country, there are many science graduates who are under-utilised, therefore do not meet how much was expected off them.

Mr. Roddie said he is certain that through this show, one can make a better judgment on the quality of education offered by USP.

The science show ends on Saturday this week.
