Exceptional Science Models Prepared By Non-student Youth:
Since the financial year 2016-17 a new event styled as 'Exceptional Science Models Prepared By Non-student Youth' has been included in the West Bengal State Student-Youth Science Fair. It is very often seen that many original science model makers apply to the West Bengal State Council of Science & Technology for getting patent of their innovation. In most of the cases, these model makers appear to be not attached with any formal educational institutions whereas the models innovated by them appear to be very interesting in nature. This new event has been introduced with an aim to enable a few of these non-student youth exceptional model makers participate and exhibit their models in the state level fair organized by this Department.
