Nagpur : Jigyasa, a student-scientist connect programme, has been initiated by CSIR-National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-NEERI) according to the recent MoU signed between  Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS). CSIR-NEERI will implement this programme in all Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) of Vidarbha and the KVs located nearby its Zonal Centres in other states.   The focus is on connecting school students and scientists so as to extend student’s classroom learning with that of a very well planned research laboratory based learning.

The CSIR-NEERI scientists also guided and interacted with the KV students during the event. While evaluating the exhibits, Dr. J.S. Pandey called upon students to understand their responsibilities towards community.  This event provided a broad platform for the students to display their creativity, originality, artistic skills, etc. and a glimpse of the processes through which they learn and acquire knowledge.
