An IRIS Victory for DAIS

The Initiative for Research and Innovation in Science (IRIS), is a research – based National Science Fair for students that nurtures the spirit of innovation among school students in India. It has its main focus on original research-based projects. IRIS provides equal opportunity to children from government as well as private schools to come together as part of Team India 2016 and represent India to compete against 70 countries at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF.) This year marked the 10th anniversary of the IRIS National Science Fair. Organized in collaboration with the India International Science Fair (IISF) along with the other DST sponsored science initiatives of INSPIRE and I3, IRIS received over 2900 projects from across the country in 2015.
