“Understanding SCIENCE” - Summer Camp for high school students”
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 indispensable tool to ensure development of society and even sustenance of life. It is therefore of utmost importance to educate the people about all the recent developments in science and technology. IISER Bhopal, a premier educational institute in the country, actively engaged in quality research and teaching believes in creating such awareness. IISER Bhopal invites application from students interested in attending a short summer camp from May 20 - 25, 2016 at its main campus in Bhauri, Bhopal. Students who would be studying in classes X, XI, XII as on May 2016 can apply.
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.
