The purpose of this scheme is to promote the academic fervour of the learners by strengthening the physical infrastructure in laboratories and class rooms. It will provide good exposure to the students to get wider knowledge in science subjects through hands on training, summer training, industrial and Research Centres visits. It encourages the students to do minor research projects for promoting their intellectual calibre through critical thinking, creativity and innovation.
