MADURAI: Tamil Nadu Science Forum (TNSF) will organise the 15th National Children’s Science Congress between August and November to instil scientific temper among students and provide space for child scientists to display their simple projects.

This year’s theme will be ‘Bio-diversity -- Nurture Nature for our Future,’ according to L. Narayanaswamy, Science Congress coordinator.

He said that a five-member team of students, led by a teacher guide, could register themselves with the TNSF to participate in the Science Congress.

The TNSF would impart training for teachers on how to go about the projects and help students in presenting the work at the district-level congress to be held in October. The best projects at the district-level would be selected for the State Science Congress to be held in Chennai in November, Mr. Narayaswamy said and added that the national-level congress would be held in Pune between December 25 and 31.

The TNSF organises the science congress with the support extended by National Science and Technology Communication Network of Department of Science and Technology,
