The Salters’ Institute, UK, in collaboration with the Royal Society of Chemistry organized a three-day residential Chemistry Camp. This was part of the Inspirational Chemistry programme sponsored by Dr. Yusuf Hamied, leading Indian philanthropist and pioneer in the pharmaceutical industry.
The residential Chemistry Camps for 9th grade rural students was held at our campus in Kuppam. The aim of the camps was to provide the most enthusiastic grade 9 students from all backgrounds with a chance to explore practical Chemistry and inspire them to study this exciting subject further at University.
Agastya team selected 60 students (28 boys and 32 girls) from 6 different Zilla Parishad High Schools for this camp. It was a fun filled three days for the children, as they explored the joys of Chemistry and experimented to their hearts' content!
