Science has become an important and permanent part of our daily lives. It not only gives us the platform to ask the “what, how and why” of nature but also has become an indispensible tool to ensure development of society and even sustenance of life. It is therefore of utmost importance to create a society that is scientifically aware. IISER Bhopal a premier educational Institute in the country actively engaged in quality research and teaching believes in creating such awareness, developing more interest and sharing the joys of science with all over India. Aimed at students who have just cleared their class IX and XI examinations, IISER Bhopal invites applications from students interested in attending a short summer camp (14th – 19th May, 2012) at its premises
The summer camp will consist of interactive lectures, along with an exposure to laboratory work guided by IISER faculty members. Our efforts are to make science as interesting and exciting as possible for the participants, so that they not only understand the basic principles of science, but also learn how to apply them in their daily lives. The objective of this program is to inculcate in students an aptitude to appreciate the role and contribution of science in the betterment of mankind. The program has been designed to create harmony between learning and applying scientific knowledge towards the development of the society
Expenses, which include lodging and food, will be covered by IISER Bhopal for all the participants. A doctor will be made available on campus (24 hours) to ensure personal health and well-being of all the candidates. We hope to provide all the participants with the best possible scientific experience.
Who can apply? Students who are presently in their class IX or XI and would have cleared their examinations at the time of the program are encouraged to send their applications.
