Competition will be held in categories of Space Sciences, Medical Sciences, Robotics, Electrical and Electronics, Environmental Sciences, and Aeronautical.

Participation should be only through schools and one participant per school is permitted in each category. They will be encouraged to work on a science project, and make live models or presentations of the chosen topic. A CD or DVD containing three to eight minutes’ video of the completed project shot at the school’s science lab with the participant in full uniform, supported by e-copies of documentary evidence saved in the same CD or DVD, should be submitted for perusal by the panel of judges. Students can be enrolled on or before December 15 on the website ‘www.spacekidz.com’, while the project submission deadline is set as January 15. Results of the top 10 projects in each stream will be published on the websites of the Space Kidz India and The Hindu , and the schools will be duly intimated.

Final contest

The winning students will have to bring their working models with all the written material, to the venue of final event to be held at Hindustan University Campus at Padur in Chennai on February 14 and 15 next year.
