Kolkata, July 17 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): The international inter school competition on science and technology Iken Scientifica is scheduled to commence from 25th July.
The competition which this year has schools participating from 15 different countries, allows the participants to take a hands-on and practical approach in utilising the knowledge they have already gained in their classrooms.
On behalf of Mexus Education, which is the organiser of the event, Director of Mexus Education Saurabh Saxena said, “Iken Scientifica promotes a hands-on approach.”
“Whatever children learn in class is converted to practical scenarios”, he added.
The contest will have four rounds including a grand “International Finale” scheduled to be held in India in May 2012.
Supplementing the competition Iken Scientifica workshops will also be organised to provide students with the opportunity of experimenting, experiencing and learning real-world situations beyond classrooms.
“We hope to encourage out of the box thinking”, Saurabh remarked.
