The INSPIRE MANAK program, an acronym for "Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research (INSPIRE) – Manak (Million Minds Augmenting National Aspiration and Knowledge)," is a visionary initiative by the Government of India aimed at nurturing young minds and fostering innovation among students. Dr. Sajad Ahmad Mir, a Senior Academic Officer of Physics and the Nodal Officer of INSPIRE MANAK at the State Council of Educational Research and Training, has recently authored a book titled "The Art of Innovations, INSPIRE MANAK, Pioneering the Future World." This book serves as an important resource, providing information on central government educational schemes for students in the Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory.
The Significance of INSPIRE MANAK
INSPIRE MANAK is an integral component of the broader INSPIRE program, which was launched by the Government of India in collaboration with the Department of Science and Technology and the Innovation Foundation. The program is designed to spark scientific curiosity and innovation among school students, of standard 6th to 10th, aiming to harness their potential and encourage their active participation in science and research. Here are some key points highlighting the importance of INSPIRE MANAK:
- Nurturing Innovation: INSPIRE MANAK is primarily focused on fostering innovation and scientific temper among young By providing them with the necessary resources, guidance, and opportunities, it encourages them to think creatively and embark on research projects that can contribute to the development of the nation.
- Empowering Students: The program empowers students by equipping them with the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to pursue scientific research. By doing so, it helps in developing a pool of future scientists, researchers, and innovators who can make significant contributions to various
- Government Support: INSPIRE MANAK is supported by the central government of India, which means it receives substantial financial backing and resources. This support ensures the program's sustainability and effectiveness, benefiting a larger number of
- Encouraging Scientific Curiosity: It stimulates scientific curiosity and an interest in research from an early age. By engaging students in hands-on experiments and projects, it helps them explore the wonders of science and technology.
- Inclusivity: The program's inclusivity ensures that students from all backgrounds and regions of the country, including remote areas like Jammu and Kashmir, have access to opportunities for scientific This promotes diversity in scientific research and innovation.
