INSPIRE Science Camp: Applications invited  Jun 22, 2016

INSPIRE Science Internship Camp
(for students of class XI)

Dates: July 18 - 22, 2016

Venue: IISER, Pune

INSPIRE Science Camps is a scheme initiated by Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India under its INSPIRE (Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired REsearch) program to attract and retain a large number of students in basic sciences and to promote research and innovation. The camp is for bright young students studying in 11th standard and is intended to expose them to the excitement and methods of science, research and innovation, just prior to the time when they make their career decisions (normally after 12th).

The students participating in this five-day residential camp will have an excellent opportunity to interact with the best scientific leaders of this country. The camp would provide thought provoking lectures, open discussions, hands-on lab sessions, and group activities. The aim is to facilitate self-learning through close interactions, and encourage independent thoughts and inquiry-based questions. In addition, students would be taken for visits to local research labs and would also be shown inspiring scientific documentaries.

There is no registration fee for the camp. Participating students will be provided free boarding and lodging on campus, local transport, and study materials for all five days of the camp, along with some transport allowance.

Applications for the INSPIRE camp are now closed. Selection of participants will be on the basis of class X marks and the criteria determined by the DST.  Selected participants will be informed by email.
