Goals of the Camp
A) Kindle the curiosity of students through interaction with accomplished scientists having expertise in different areas such as chemistry, nanotechnology, engineering, biology etc.
B) Convince school students that Science is lucrative because a) one can pursue their interests b) making a living and c) contribute to the development of society!
C) Help students experience mathematical and scientific inquiry [discovering and formulating interesting questions to investigate, gathering (experimental or non-experimental, quantitative or non-quantitative, instrumental or non-instrumental) observations to look for answers, arriving at observational generalizations, explaining observational generalizations by constructing theories, etc.]
D) Help students understand the rational justification (evidence, reasoning) in support of conclusions that are accepted as 'knowledge'.
E) Convince students that Science can be done even without high-end infrastructure.
