Spark Innovation Awards


Philosophy behind the SPARK Innovation Awards:


KVRSS is a not-for-profit, self funded society, dedicated to the promotion of science among youth, specially school children. With a view of fostering spirit of scientific enquiry and promoting innovation among school-children, KVRSS holds an annual science fair wherein the Spark Innovation Awards are given for entries displaying harnessing of scientific concepts for solutions to every-day issues through some novel concept / method / process / device.

The Spark contest aims to encourage innovation among school children through an inter-school competition wherein the Spark Innovation Awards would be given to the children who come up with the most original exhibits/concepts in the fields of Biology, Botany, Food Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and Mathematics including – but not limited to all branches of science like Earth and Environment Sciences, Electricity and Electronics, Robotics, Energy. The competition is open to students from the states of Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
