Twenty-six students and three teachers from Anantha Mahesh P.U. College, Avathi Post, Devanahalli, Bangalore, participated in Student Buddy Programme, organized by Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) to enthuse young students about science.
Under this programme, students had the opportunity to spend a day in the campus in a relatively unrestricted manner. They were not bound by time tables and are not constantly taking notes or instructions. Students accepted to experience a day in the life of a research student and are free to interact with them.
The students observed researchers working and experimenting during the day, participated in some experiments, experienced how they interact with peers and what kind of discussions ensue among them.
The Programme was inaugurated by Prof. N.S. Vidhyadhiraja, Dean, Fellowships and Extension Programmes, attended by Advisor (Spl. Projects) and the Coordinator Academic, and F & E Section among others. Several research scholars from JNCASR attended the programme.
