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.
