As part of the student initiative, we have been hosting science club interaction sessions at CEBS, with guest speakers, called RENDEZVOUS, to enrich students from all streams with ideas apart from what they learn in course work. Most of the students are in the process of deciding their future research endeavors, including fields of study, and familiarizing with multidisciplinary and fundamental components of basic research.
CEBS Science Club also organizes telecasts where documentaries, biopics and live telecasts of important scientific proceedings are shown.
Jigyasa is an annual Science Quiz organized by students of University of Mumbai - Department of Atomic Energy Centre for Excellence in Basic Sciences. 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 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.
