Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) asked its affiliated schools to apply for the science exhibition 2017-18 at Regional and National levels before October 20.
This activity is being conducted aiming to provide a common platform to schools, teachers and students to shape to their innovative ideas and learn from each other’s experiences.
Last date for filling the online registration form is October 20. And the registration fee is Rs 650. Schools which are interested to take part in the exhibition can fill the form.


The regional level will be held in November and December. The national level will be conducted after completion of regional level. Themes for the Science Exhibition for 2017 – 18 are health and well–being, resource management and food security, waste management and water body conservation, transport and communication, digital and technological solutions and innovations for sustainable development.


Students may prepare a model on any sub–theme other than the six sub–themes but it should be in the context of the main theme of the exhibition that is ‘Science, Technology and Mathematics for Nation Building’. Some ideas that are new and may be applicable in future may also be presented in the form of presentations and discussions.


Sub themes are Health, Industry, Transport and Communication, Innovations in renewable resources for sustainable environment, Innovations in food production and food security and Mathematical solutions in everyday life.


The Board has been taking many initiatives to provide interactive, participatory, hands-on, innovative and creative learning experiences to students studying in its affiliated schools. One such initiative refers to the organization of Science Exhibition at Regional and National levels every year.


According to the board, these exhibitions also provide a medium for popularizing science and increasing awareness among stakeholders.
Taking into consideration the enthusiastic response from participating schools in the past, it has again been decided to organize Science exhibitions for the academic year 2016-17.


These exhibitions are likely to be organized in different parts of the country at regional level in the month of November and December in 2016 and at national level in the month of January and February in 2017.
