Student Buddy Programme (SBP)


The aim of this programme is to help school students (class XI and XII) learn about the latest advances in science and engineering and give them a taste of life in research. It also gives research scholars at the Ph.D. and postdoctoral levels the opportunity to participate in educational programmes and inculcates a sense of responsibility towards education. Each school student spends a day of individual interactions with a research scholar in a scientist’s group observing and/or participating in ongoing research or discussions. Under this programme, so far 434 students and 33 teachers from Jawahar Navodayas and Kendriya Vidyalayas from Karnataka have benefitted.

This programme is open throughout the year.
