CHEMISTRY CAMPS IN INDIA
Pilot Camps at Indian Institute of Science (IISc) and Agastya Creativity Campus
The first two residential Chemistry Camps have taken place in India as part of the Yusuf Hamied ‘Inspirational Chemistry Programme’. At each Camp 60 students in 9 Standard grade (14-15 year olds), from Government schools, participated in a varied programme of practical activities, chemical demonstrations and fun lectures. They also enjoyed time to socialise with like-minded students. A team of local teachers mentored the students at each of the 3 day Camps. The activities were delivered in local languages.
