It is a platform for students of undergraduate colleges in the state of Maharashtra to exhibit their aptitude for science as well as innovative thinking.
Jigyasa started as an intra-college competition in 2011 as a part of the CEBS Science club activities. The following year, Jigyasa grew with more number of participants from various departments in University of Mumbai.
Jigyasa provides a platform for the budding scientists and science aspirants to interact with students of CEBS and other prominent colleges, and discuss opportunities in pure science research, with an aim to contributing to the National Science Programme. It also provides opportunity for students to interact with faculty in CEBS, and scientists from TIFR, BARC, IIT-Bombay, HBCSE etc.
Jigyasa aims to check the students in various aspects like scientific aptitude, analytical abilities, experimental mindset, creative thinking, innovative skills, smartness and promptness. Special care is taken to avoid knowledge based questions so as to bring students from different batches and years on equal footing. All questions and problems are based on knowledge at the 12th standard level.
