About the Program
CCMB Young Innovators - A program for school children
CCMB identifies talented young students of class VIII to X and encourage them to appreciate the significance of science through this program. In this program the students are made to realize that creativity, keen interest and enthusiasm are the main components of success in science careers. Different schools of Hyderabad are requested to identify students and nominate them for this program. From among the large number of students, we select about 15 student by a short test and put them in a two week hands on experience of research activity in CCMB.
students would carry out experiments on their own, involving the
preparation and analysis of their own DNA, preparation and examination
of nano particles, grow bacteria and count them, observe the
developmental processes in Drosophila and zebrafish, in addition to
visiting several facilities of the centre. Apart from this, they would
also interact with various scientists and discuss science
every days. Students are given “CCMB Young innovator” certificate at
the end of the program in an interactive session.
