UL, in partnership with National Council of Science Museums, is organizing the National Safety Science Quiz 2015 (NSSQ 2015) for high school students, starting in August 2015. It is being organized in an effort to ignite young minds for a safer India.
The quiz has been designed to instill greater awareness on the need for safety, especially amongst children, and spread the message of safety education across the country.
The subject of the quiz is “Safety in Everyday Life” and the preliminary round (written) for selection of students will be held at seven centres – Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Guwahati, Ahmadabad and Bangalore. Each participating school can send up to 20 students in Classes 9 to 12. Entries will be restricted to 7,000 students for the preliminary round, which will be conducted on August 23, 2015 (Sunday) from 11 am at all the centres across India. The top four students from each of the seven centers will participate in the subsequent rounds of the quiz at Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (VITM), Bangalore during the last week of October 2015.
