After the enormous success of Singularity’14 we are back and ready to spread the light of science with as much fun as possible.
We strive to create a healthy scientific environment in IISER Bhopal and benefit the community through the views and work of eminent persons in the field of science, both from India as well as around the world. We seek to inspire school students to explore the beauty of the natural world and its many hidden rules, which has driven man’s curiosity throughout the ages. Being a science institute we find it our moral responsibility to educate the society and impart scientific awareness to the citizens and promote scientific research as a career opportunity for the coming generations.
The Science Council organizes student and faculty talks and holds documentary screenings on a regular basis. Many renowned speakers from across the country have given talks under the banner of the Science Council. There are many clubs under the banner of the Science Council, which hold regular meetings to discuss topics in science beyond the scope of the curriculum. The Science Council also actively contributes to the Outreach Program of IISER Bhopal in which students from Class IX - XI from all over India are introduced to the pure sciences and the career opportunities present in the field of scientific research.
Singularity was started in 2010 in the form of a Science Club with just 5 members. The aim was to create an ambience of science as an extra-curricular activity in IISER-B. Over the years, we have grown both in strength and ambition, and in February 2014 we organised IISER Bhopal's first ever science fest. The first edition of Singularity gathered an overwhelming response and we were inspired to bring to you, for the second time, Singularity'15, where different branches of science find a strong platform for expression - where science prevails.
