Science Quest 2020 @ IIT Palakkad


In support of the efforts taken by the government to control the spread of corona virus (including social distancing), IIT Palakkad has decided to cancel the 2020 edition of Science Quest workshop. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to our applicants.

Continuing the journey with Valsa

IIT Palakkad is conducting a residential science camp in memory of Late Prof. M. C. Valsakumar, former Professor of Physics and Dean Student Affairs at IIT Palakkad. Prof. Valsakumar, Valsa to his friends, was an excellent researcher, an extraordinary teacher and above all a humanist. Spreading his passion for science is our way of continuing the journey with him.

IIT Palakkad will select 30 students from schools across Kerala and Coimbatore district in Tamil Nadu. The goal of the camp is to instil a spirit of inquiry and critical thinking, and love for science and mathematics in students. This camp would also provide a platform for interactions between students from various regions and researchers at IIT Palakkad. There will be interactive sessions on various topics in science, engineering and mathematics, and several hands-on sessions in labs where scientific concepts will be introduced through experiments.

The camp will run uninterrupted for 11days from 12th to 22th of May 2020. Food and accommodation will be provided in the IIT hostels which are inside the campus.
