The Foundation strongly believes that such Tests, apart from bringing out the best in the participants, also help them gain confidence for competing with the best around them and in the country and contribute to personality development. Also recognition of merit at an early age is bound to infuse a certain sense of achievement that encourages them to do even better as they advance in age.
The students are exposed to a variety of complex problems which demand a high level of analytical ability and proficiency in the use of various concepts from a cross-section of subjects, thereby invoking ingenuity in dealing with them. Since admissions to various professional institutions like IITs and Medical colleges are given on the basis of performance in competitive exams, such Tests also pave the way for a true understanding of the concepts that is so essential for doing well in these highly competitive exams.
Apart from the Test activities, the Foundation also conducts seminars, workshops, and teacher training programmes in the state capitals of the country. Implementing one of its aims to conduct seminars state-level, the first such seminar cum workshop for science teachers was conducted at St. Columba's School, New Delhi. The theme was: Innovation in Science Teaching. 160 science teachers from 46 schools in Delhi took part in the workshop, and 13 resource persons of eminence and erudition were drawn from IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur and Delhi University who freely and generously shared their teaching skill, expertise and knowledge with the participants. For most of the teachers it was a stimulating, refreshing and learning experience and an eye-opener.
