SCIENCE FOR YOUTH

Written by Admin | posted in Projects | 3 Comments

NAYS, a volunteer organization working for Pakistani Youth started a major project of Science for Youth (S4Y) which will definitely play a great role in the grooming of youngsters, the bright future of our beloved country. This project is unique of its type as it is majorly focusing on school and college students. Aim of S4Y is not to focus University students as all the other ongoing projects of NAYS are focusing only university students through all the major aspects.

Major aim of S4Y project is career counseling of younger students. Its main objective is to educate them at the grass root level that there are many other noble fields of science and technology where there is a pace for them to prove themselves. There is a need to make their minds to think out of the box so that they not only focus on MBBS, BDS, MBA, Engineering fields but also try some other challenging and rapidly advancing corners of science. Target of S4Y is to create awareness among students about different arenas of specialization.

S4Y team is conducting sessions, seminars, and healthy activities just to inculcate students with different terminologies and to give knowledge of various disciplines of science. For this purpose team has demonstrators in each area or city. Demonstrators deliver lectures to the school and college students of the respective area especially rural areas where there is a strong need to create awareness. All Officials coordinators would report about their activities to project coordinator on monthly basis. Project coordinator manages all the above mentioned setup and elaborates new tasks to be targeted to fulfill the task of S4Y project.

Another major target of S4Y is the brain storming of our youth which is neglected by current teaching methodologies through spoon feeding. S4Y aim condemns spoon feeding with a belief that if someone is blessed with brain then he/she should prove it functional. S4Y team is training students to develop the habit to ponder over things in a unique creative way. To accomplish this aim, at the end of every session, demonstrators throw such questions which would make students to think on various aspects using their own mental power.

S4Y is a huge project and needs a lot of time because it is coming up with long term strategies for the development of Pakistani youth. Support and guidance of the respected authorities is required for the better and effective outcomes of S4Y.

STRATEGIES:

A team of young qualified researchers has been established from all over the Pakistan for this noble aim. S4Y team is comprised of the following:

  • Project coordinator
  • Team members(Male and female)
  • Demonstrators (Male and Female)
