A workshop was organised by the Centre for Communication and International Linkages (CCIL) in collaboration with Punjab State Council of Science and Technology (PSCST) for schools students from various districts of Punjab to promote science at higher education.
Rural India is unaware of the careers in science hence we dont see many rural schools stidents enrolling for AB.Sc in highr education. A week-long interaction with thirty meritorious matriculate students from different districts of the state was conducted and that they needed to be guided through right counsel and that workshops provided motivation to them. They were motivated to remain connected with their roots in the rural areas.
The programme was sponsored through Department of Science and Technology, Govt of India, at PAU.
