Organization of the camp
The program is a 5-day residential camp. The maximum strength of the camp is 80 students. The camp will be addressed by 10 eminent scientists from premier research institutes in India such as Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), Indian Institute of Science (IISc) etc. The mornings are devoted to interactions with the mentors who share their experiences of scientific pursuits, how they stumbled upon questions of interests, what motivated them to stay on, an introduction to their areas of work, the unexplored horizons of their research areas, etc. The afternoons are devoted to hands-on experiences where students perform simple guided experiments in physics, chemistry and biology. In the evenings, the students engage in discussions based on the guided experiments they performed. Further, students will also participate in discussions on scientific reasoning, and identifying scientific solutions to global issues.
