It gives us immense pleasure to welcome you to Singularity '14, the first science festival organized by the Science Council, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research
Bhopal. At Singularity, we bring to you a colourful mix of thought-provoking quizzes and competitions, popular talks by experts and much more.
Singularity started as a group of science enthusiasts at IISER Bhopal. Under the banner of the Science Council, we have organized science activities, talks, student lectures and much more for the IISERB family. Here we take a step further and bring to you the first ever science fest of IISER Bhopal.
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, both from India as well as around the world. 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 among the upcoming generations.
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 IISERB. Over the years we have grown both in strength and ambition; now we are in a position to organize our very own science fest.
Many eminent speakers have given talks under the banner of the Science Council. The Science Council holds regular meetings in which extra-curricular topics are discussed. This council also organizes student and faculty talks and holds documentary screenings on a regular basis. The Science Council 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.
