Registration is open till November 30, 2013 Mexus Education Pvt Ltd has announced iKen Scientifica-2013, a hands-on global science competition for students from class four to class nine. The competition is open to all students and schools across the country. In its seventh year, iKen Scientifica has witnessed increasing participation every year since its inception. Approximately 5,00,000 students participate every year.
Participation categories are divided as follows:
Level 1 – classes 4 and 5
Level 2 – classes 6 and 7
Level 3 – classes 8 and 9
The Competition will be conducted in three rounds. The theme for Round-1 is ‘Industrial Science Problems’, based on which participants are required to select a problem statement from the given list of real life problem statements. Participants have to find an innovative solution by exploring into the existing solutions, looking into their surroundings and propose the business aspect of their solution. After clearing Round-1, participants will be shortlisted for Round-2, which is the Contraption Challenge (Team Round). In this Round-2 students are expected to make a contraption (a series of mechanisms that can be triggered one after another) based on an interesting theme. Round-3 is a Hands-on Round, where students will be tested on their hands-on and interpersonal skills.
Winners of Round-3 will win an all-expenses paid trip to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and four runners up from each level will be rewarded with exciting gadgets.
