The primary objectives of the Children's Science Congress is to make a forum available to children of the age-group of 10-17 years, both from formal school system as well as from out of school, to exhibit their creativity and innovativeness and more particularly their ability to solve a societal problem experienced locally using the method of-science.

By implication, the CSC prompts the children to think over societal problems, ponder over its causes and subsequently try and solve the same. This involves close and keen observation, raising pertinent questions, formulating a hypothesis, building models/road maps, predicting solutions on the basis of a model, trying out various possible options and arriving at an optimum solution using experimentation and testing, field work, research and innovative ideas. The Children’s Science Congress encourages a sense of discovery among children. It emboldens the participants to question many aspects of our progress and development and express their findings in their vernacular language.

The main objectives of NCSC

  • Relating learning science with the environment around;
  • Encouraging the children to understand the environment, its problems and prospects and to help them to find feasible solutions;
  • Stimulating scientific temper through the use and internalization of the method of science, i.e. observation, collection of data, experiments, analysis and then arriving at conclusions.
