Expectations from the evaluators

Evaluators may note that the participating children are budding scientists from the age group of 10 to 17 years, with limited access to knowledge-centers. Hence they need encouragement.

  • Having understood their capabilities and capacities, the evaluators should provide them with constructive inputs and positive feedback.
  • Should appreciate and value their efforts, innovativeness and confidence.
  • Your honest assessment can be a guiding light for their future endeavors.
  • Each child scientist must go back motivated, intellectually rich and more confident.
  • Evaluate them on the basis of subject matter and scientific content and not influenced by the gadgetry or models used or oratory skills.
  • To avoid unwarranted criticism.
  • Should avoid comparing their works with those carried out by senior members or scientists.
  • Avoid being a source of distraction to the child scientist while presentation is going on.
  • Interaction with child scientist should not be taken as a test of what they do not know, but it should help them to expose what they know about the subject area.
  • Though the teacher guides may be present during the deliberation but are not allowed to ask any question to the presenter (child scientist).
