The 'Science and Technology Exploration Camp' arranged to promote scientific learning and creating awareness amongst students regarding science and its applications concluded here on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Science Club (PSC) arranged this summer science camp, where young scientists enjoyed an entire week of scientific exploration, conducted engaging experiments and fostered networking amongst budding scientists, President PSC Abdul Rauf told APP.

He said that the camps’ content was designed according to age level to ensure a high quality experience, and all camps were facilitated by certified teachers or science professionals.

An engineers’ camp was arranged for young scientists from the age bracket of 13-18 years, where students learned to design things ranging from skateboards to rockets to robots, said Abdul Rauf, adding it was a forum where students understood techniques and concepts of all phases of engineering to solve existing problems and preventing future disasters.

Similarly, a separate science camp was arranged for scientists in a younger age bracket, namely 6 to 12 years old, and offered a unique “hands-on experience.”

“We have chosen the Science Exploration Camp mainly due to the fact that children are free in the summer vacations and can freely indulge in the different science activities, thereby learning from them,” said Abdul Rauf.
