COMPETITION 21. SCIENCE AND RESEARCH SKILLS
ELIGIBILITY Class II – X of CBSE, ICSE, IGCSE and SSC Boards
SUBJECT(S) SCIENCE (PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY & BIOLOGY)
DESCRIPTION The word science comes from the Latin “scientia,” meaning knowledg. Science is a systematic enterprise of gathering knowledge about the world, organizing and condensing that knowledge into testable laws and theories. As knowledge has increased, some methods have proved more reliable than others, and in the present scenario, the scientific method is the standard for science. The use of the scientific method to make new discoveries is called scientific research, and the person who carry out this research is called scientist.

Science seeks to understand how nature behaves by observing and correlating available factual information. Our understanding of science is therefore based upon, and limited by, the factual information available.

OBJECTIVE
  • Identify the role of different branches of sciences and their implications on society.
  • To test the students’ skills in observation, identification, description, experimental investigation and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
  • To inculcate scientific temper.
  • To create awareness of the contribution of great mathematicians and scientists.
  • To invoke curiosity.
