Pune: Moving Academy of Medicine and Biomedicine (MAMB) has invited applications from students of Std IX (SSC Board) for a summer vacation science education programme ‘Nurturing Science Talent in Economically Marginalised Children’. The applications need to be submitted by March 15.
The programme will exclusively enroll students from municipality schools in Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) areas. This is the first time, the organisation is conducting such a programme urban area, after successfully holding ‘Little Scientist’ programme in rural and tribal areas last year.
“Although, schools in urban areas have a lot more exposure to the new and upcoming science discoveries, a large number of students, especially those belonging to the economically marginalised sector, are deprived of even the basic laboratory setup to learn the scientific concepts,” Kruttika Iyengar of MAMB said.
The objective of the programme is to spot and nurture talented but marginalised children and provide them with a hands-on learning opportunity. Select students in PMC and PCMC schools will receive training in laboratory investigations with a special focus on Std X practical syllabus. This programme will benefit students in SSC Board exams. Selective students with research aptitude may also get an opportunity to work on in-house research projects.
The academy will also provide transport facility to students throughout the duration of the course.
