ModelShop.in, a Science Partner of Edinburgh International Science Festival, invites you to an exciting journey into the world of Experiential Science!
The ModelShop School Science Championship seeks to promote excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team Science Experiments.
It fosters intensive observation and experiential skills that improves students' understanding of the value of scientific study and informs their consideration of future careers in these disciplines.
- Its India's first offline PRACTICAL Science Challenge with DIY Kit.
- It is not an Online Theoretical Problem-Solution-Business challenge like Iken Scientifica or Google Science Fair.
- Championship is designed by Ex-ISRO Scientists, Science Talent Search Winners and Distinguished Educationalists.
- It’s a Kit Based Practical Scientific Enquiry based competition
where participants use an experiment kit for a branch of science for
- Ask a Question which is interesting, creative, scientifically worded, and relevant to today's world.
- Test a hypothesis or expected outcome that is tightly focused, follows naturally from the question, and builds on existing knowledge.
- Write a Method that demonstrates that they've used good experimental techniques or testing processes, and describe it clearly and in detail.
- Run Experiment with the given Science Kit.
- Maintain accurate record and present relevant data, results or observations, and describe the patterns or trends these data support.
- Conclude with explanation how your experiment answers your original question or problem, and how it supports your hypothesis - or why it fails to do so.
- It is run by dedicated Science Partners who work with a team of local science teachers who work as mentors and guide.
- Open to students aged 8-15.
Who Can Participate?
All Schools that provide quality Science Education can register themselves as partner for this Championship. The Students of these schools can compete as an individual or as a member of a team.
Govt. Schools or Schools run by charitable organizations are most welcome to contact the organisers for FREE entry.
