NSC is not just an exam or competition. We do not want to burden students with one more test or exam. Our sincere effort is to encourage students to innovate and use their knowledge in creating a better world. We want to bring students out of the classroom and make them feel science all around them.
Today's children do not appreciate subjects which they are not able to relate with their day to day life. This leads to requirement for more and more experiential learning. With limited resources, we cannot cater to many students so we created this structure of NSC which promotes creativity and innovation and also help us identifying students who are serious about this subject.
National Science Concours reaches out to innovative students and takes them through an experiential learning journey. Our Science Camp features the most innovative experiential learning workshops exposing the participants to different fields of sciences. The two level selection process if to filter down to the really deserving participants. We don't compete or ever intend to compete with the Olympiads. We promote out of the box thinking and making the students comfortable with science along with encouraging them to take up research in all different fields of science.
