Schools which have been winning the national level Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) science exhibition since 2004 will now get the tag of Science Hub Schools.
HRD minister Kapil Sibal announced this at the 8th CBSE Science Exhibition held at Modern School, Barakhamba Road, on Friday.
Sibal said schools will be supported by CBSE and the pilot research projects by students will be carried out here.
Emphasising on the importance of science, technology and innovation, Sibal said those schools, which had scored the first three positions in the exhibitions held so far, will be supported by CBSE.
CBSE chairperson Vineet Joshi was also present at the event, which saw participation from as many as 180 schools. The exhibition will also be open on Saturday. A panel of judges will declare the results later on Saturday.
