While the award does not intend to restrict the exploration of the children to specific areas of science, the programme needs to focus on selected topics so as to have a theme as well as common evaluation parameters for judging entries.
While the topics are fixed, the sub-topics are indicative only. The basis of the topic selection assumption is the common topics covered by different Indian school boards.
Attempt has been made to create an exhaustive list of subtopics but, if a child thinks that some subtopics have been missed out, please write on our forum Sub-topics TACtivity Forum. In case submission are in sub-topics that are not listed, the submission maybe rejected and the decision of the judges in this regard will be final.
The topics selected for Phase I are provided below.
