At that point we will give them the best scholarly condition and facilitatory set-up for the following two years to prepare them," Sharma told ThePrint.

He said the camps would be held at existing IITs, Indian Institutes of Science Education and Research, college grounds, or wherever great innovative work offices were accessible, finished with inspired workforce, volunteers and researchers, and a sheltered situation for young lady understudies.

"The classes will be held each night, through Class 11 and 12. We will likewise offer an unobtrusive grant of Rs 5,000 or so to cover driving costs for chose applicants. The science camp won't simply be tied in with instructing science to the young ladies, yet in addition to convey them up close and personal with ladies researchers, to move, rouse and acquaint them with the lives of researchers and working ladies.
