Science for Youth
Leader: Aftab Ahmad
National Academy of Young Scientists (NAYS) started a project of Science for Youth (S4Y) to motivate students at school and college level. This project is an effort to encourage our youth towards conceptual learning. Our youth is the future and this is an initiative to build a better future. As majority of the population of developing world comprises of youth so this is an effort to get more and more devoted scientists in future.
A pilot project from Pakistan was presented in GYA GA-2012 in order to discuss possible application in other countries.
The project is now extended to following countries. Kenya, Senigal, Iran, Netherlands and Maurituius
The researchers from universities and research institutes will visit their local area schools and colleges and will participate in different scientific activities (lecture, round table discussion, career counselling, lab work etc.) Following will be the objectives of this project:
- To show the youth that science can be a great opportunity for a career
- To make the students and their parents aware of the importance of scientists to meet the global challenges
- Motivated young students will choose to be a scientist as their first preference and will be the science leaders in future.
