Bahrain Students’ Innovation Congress (BSIC) is organized in association with Department of Science and Technology, Government of India to spread the concept of the method of science among children by adopting the principle of “Learning through Doing”.
Schools following Indian syllabus in Bahrain can send a maximum of FOUR teams/projects – 2 each from the 2 categories shown below.
Age as of 31st December of the respective year when the student is participating.
Junior Category – Lower Group: 10 years to less than 14 years
Senior Category – Upper Group: 14 years to less than 17 years
A group of children not exceeding TWO, can form a team and carry out the research project with the help of school teachers, coordinators of school science clubs, experts/activists of science based voluntary organizations, research institutes etc. as Project Guides. (Project Guides should not have any blood relation with the project team members).
General evaluation criteria for the projects are originality of the idea and concept, relevance of the project to the theme, scientific understanding of the issue, data collection, analysis, experimentation/scientific study/validation, interpretation and problem solving attempt, team work, log book presentation and project display in exhibition booths, innovation and scope for improvement.
The completed research projects will be exhibited and evaluated during Bahrain Student’s Innovation Congress (BSIC) scheduled to be held in Bahrain during Nov/Dec every year. Selected projects will undergo screening by a panel of eminent judges and will be submitted to Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, for consideration as entries for the participation in the National Children Science Congress.
There will be no fee for participation in the BSIC program in Bahrain.
The cost of travel to India has to be borne by the participant or his/her school.
Team Leader of winning team should be willing to travel to India to participate @ National Children’s Science Congress (5 days event).
The exercise of project activities, as thumb rule, encourages the children to explore, think, serve, wonder and is capable to imbibe the temperament/quality/skill of the children like Observation, Making measurement, Making comparison and contrasts, Classification, Estimation, Prediction, Interpretation, Critical thinking, Creative thinking, Drawing conclusion and Cooperative skills.
Interested students may contact your respective school’s science department for more information about the selection.

Project Guides and Science Coordinators to encourage children to take up topics which gives enough scope for simple experimentation and surveys. In BSIC all your assessments/conclusions should be backed up by data and observations generated ideally from a combination of experiments and surveys.
Please invest your energy in this aspect. Also please make sure that the project doesn’t depend too much on surveys alone.
