About the Program

CCMB Young Innovators - A program for school children

CCMB identifies talented young students of grades VIII to X, and encourages them to appreciate scientific methodologies through this program. CCMB aims to emphasize that creativity, keen interest and enthusiasm are the main components of success in science by giving access to active research labs via this program.

Among a large number of students nominated by schools, 20-25 students are selected by a short test for a two week hands-on experience in research in CCMB. The selected students carry out experiments such as 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 also interact with various scientists and discuss their work during the program. On successful completion of the program, students are awarded with a certificate.
