Science India: Virtual Science portal for students

Science Education is an important tool for the development of a nation. The alarmingly decreasing number of students opting diverse science streams as a career and the lack of right guidance to the young generation has prompted VIBHA (Vijnana Bharati) and NCSTC to take an initiative for a Virtual Science Portal for the Indian Students.

This web portal http://www.scienceindia.in is a novel initiative for the students, particularly from class 6 th to 12 th to have basic understanding of diverse avenues of science and its latest trends in technological applications. Moreover this portal will act as a virtual science world which would motivate and inspire students to experiment and take science as an interesting career option. One of the main aims of the portal is to provide every student with a mentor. Every student can choose their mentor from a wide range of experts consisting of eminent Scientists, Academicians, Research Scholars, Civil servants, Technocrats and Social leaders.

Science India, through the mobilization of vast scientific contingent of India intends to promote Indian achievements in science and technology and develop curiosity and innovative ideas to address the challenges facing the globe. The Constitution of India in Article 51A on Fundamental Duties says:”It shall be the duty of every citizen of India…To develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of enquiry and reform”

Apart from a Constitutional Duty, the above is also a moral duty. This portal also intends to inculcate scientific temper as it promotes logical thinking and rational decision making, both being primarily essential for overall development of a nation. For such overall development and growth of the country and society, it is necessary to develop scientific temper among all the people irrespective of their age, caste, creed, religion etc. A society that is scientifically empowered is at par with standard human development as it develops a mind with the spirit to enquire and question in order to seek the right and proven knowledge with substantial evidence. Ultimately, it is the right knowledge that leads to reform.

It is quite natural for a school student to be amazed about the magnificence of science. This generates scientific spirit and inventive ideas during learning. Such a creative mind needs to be encouraged and mentored in the right direction. The encouragement not only yields results that have long term socio-economic benefits but also inspires and multiplies the self-confidence of the student. Science education with fundamental and multidimensional approach provokes logical thought and action. This shall form the foundation for achieving technological advancement of India where talent is plentiful, but identifying and mentoring talented students has so far been slow and faint. This cannot be allowed to continue in the better interest of India.

A very large team is associated with this portal in order to ensure that school students benefit the maximum and are mentored towards the right career path in science. Click here to know more about the team . There are several activities like mentorship program, daily science news, articles and blogs, student’s science community and many more to nurture and groom tomorrows citizens of India.

NOTE: It is mandatory for students to provide a valid email id and mobile number to sign-up in the Science India Web Portal.
