JNNSMEE for Children 2017
Jawaharlal Nehru Science, Mathematics And Environment Exhibition For Children 2014-15

With a view to encourage, popularize and inculcate scientific temper among the children of the country, NCERT organizes national level science exhibition every year where children showcase their talents in science and mathematics and their applications in different areas related with our everyday life. In 1988 with the birth centenary celebration of Jawaharlal Nehru, the National Science Exhibition was renamed as the 'Jawaharlal Nehru National Science Exhibition for Children'. This year being celebrated as Year of Mathematics and to give more emphasis on environment-related issues, this exhibition is now renamed as Jawaharlal Nehru National Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (JNNSMEE) for Children.

In order to ensure the widest possible participation and involvement of students and teachers in the programme, NCERT organises exhibition in two phases. In the first phase, exhibitions are held in each and every state and union territory from the district, to the state level. This first phase is known as State Level Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (SLSMEE) for Children. All participating states, union territories and other educational organisations like CBSE (for its affiliated independent public schools), Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti, DAE Central Schools and Demonstration Multipurpose Schools of NCERT forward their selected entries to NCERT for consideration for participation in the National Exhibition  the second phase of NCERT's organizing Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibitions. The national Exhibition now called JNNSMEE is organized every year by the NCERT in a state/UT, on rotation basis. The exhibits for display in this national exhibition are selected at NCERT on the basis of a notified criterion.

Objectives of the  Jawaharlal Nehru Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition:
  1. to provide a forum for children to pursue their natural curiosity and inventiveness to quench their thirst for creativity;
  2. to make children feel that science is all around us and we can gain knowledge as well as solve many problems also by relating the learning process to the physical and social environment;
  3. to lay emphasis on the development of science and technology as a major instrument for achieving goals of self-reliance and socio-economic and socio-ecological development;
  4. to highlight the role of science and technology for producing good quality and environmental friendly materials for the use of society;
  5. to encourage children to visualise future of the nation and help them become sensitive and responsible citizens;
  6. to analyse how science has developed and is affected by many diverse individuals, cultures, societies and environment;
  7. to develop critical thinking about global issues to maintain healthy and sustainable societies in today's environment;
  8. to apply mathematics and information technology to visualise and solve problems pertaining to everyday life etc.;
  9. to appreciate the role of science in meeting the challenges of life such as climate change, opening new avenues in the area of agriculture, fertiliser, food processing, biotechnology, green energy, disaster management, information and communication technology, astronomy, transport, games and sports etc.; and
  10. to create awareness about environmental issues and concerns and inspiring children to devise innovative ideas towards their mitigation.
The organisation of these exhibitions envisages that children and teachers would try to analyse all aspects of human endeavor with a view to identify where and how the new researches and developments in science and technology can bring and sustain progress of society leading to improvement for the challenges of life. The organisation of science, mathematics and environment exhibitions also provide opportunities to all participating students, teachers and visitors to get acquainted with different kind of equipment, devices and techniques.

These organisations send their selected entries for consideration for participation in Jawaharlal Nehru National Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (JNNSMEE) for Children to NCERT directly. Therefore, it may please be ensured that entries belonging to the se organis ation s are not f orwarded to NCERT by States/UTs.

Public Sector Undertakings, Industries, and other Non-government Organisations (NGOs) working in the areas (where these exhibitions are organised) may also be invited to participate as the exhibits displayed by them would be of instructional value for children and teachers.

1. In case Districts/Regional Level Exhibitions are not being organised by the State/UT, a Screening Committee should be set up to finalise the selection of entries from various institutions for participation in the State Level Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (SLSMEE) for Children.

2. The Screening Committee may consist of representatives of SISE/SIE/SCERT and some selected representative institution(s). All records about the meeting of the committee should be maintained. The selection procedure adopted should lay more emphasis on the quality of the exhibits rather than quantity. It should be ensured that he exhibits are not crude and hazardous and have good finish and are presentable.

3. The above mentioned Screening Committee or a separate panel of judges should evaluate the exhibits according to the criteria of evaluation as mentioned for SLSMEE. Best three exhibits in each area should be selected; preferably developed by secondary and higher secondary students; by the said panel of judges.However, an outstanding exhibit developed by upper primary students and members of science clubs may also be considered if the said panel of judges feel so.

4. A list of the selected entries of the exhibits and models under each area (to be displayed in the state level exhibition) must be prepared. This must contain the name of the exhibit/model, names of the student(s) and guiding teacher(s), name of the school and a brief information about the exhibit (may be in two sentences only).

Such a list may be prepared in accord- ance with the NCERT's un-priced publication "List of Exhibits", displayed in the National Exhibition. It is published every year and distributed to all participating children, teachers, and visitors during the exhibition. A copy of this may be obtained from the NCERT, New Delhi.This list may also be distributed among all participating children and teachers. A copy of this list should be forwarded to NCERT together with the formal report of the exhibition.

Criteria for Evaluation of Exhibits in SLSMEE.
In order to keep a uniform criteria for evaluating the exhibits in all States/UTs and on the basis of the feedback received from different agencies, the following criteria for judging the exhibits is suggested (the percentages given in bracket are suggestive weightagess):

  1.  Involvement of children’s own creativity and imagination (20 percent);
  2.  Originality and scientific and mathematical innovations in the exhibit/model (15 percent);
  3.  Scientific thought/ principle/ approach (15 per cent);
  4.  Technical skill, workmanship and craftsman- ship (15 percent);
  5.  Utility for Society, scalability (15 percent);
  6.  Economic (low cost), portability, durability, etc. (10 percent); and
  7.  Presentation - aspects like demonstration, explanation and display (10 percent).

[(i) 5% extra weightage may be given to ex- hibits from rural/backward regions.
(ii) 3% extra weightage may be given to ex- hibits from semi urban regions.]

On the basis of the criteria suggested above and als o as m en t ion ed i n pr of or m a V I, three entries from each area developed by students of classes IX-XII may be selected and forwarded to NCERT for consideration for part icipat ion in JNNSMEE-2016. How ever outstanding exhibits developed by upper primary students and members of science clubs may also be considered provided the total entries from each area does not exceed three.

In addition to this , two best exhib its developed by disabled students from any of the areas may also be forwarded to NCERT. It must be kept in mind that entries submitted uder this category should be displayed only by the disabled students. Further the entries forwarded should be accompanied with disability certificate from a competent authority. Disability norms followed by the government of India will be considered under this category.

Judges are also requested to judge whether the model is traditional or an improvement over the traditional model or it is innovation as per proforma IV. Various skills involved in constructing the exhibit and model, the degree of neatness and craftsmanship may also be taken into account. Every effort must be made to rule out the tendency of procuring the ready made exhibits/models.General layout of the exhibit, relevance, clarity of charts accompanying the exhibit and overall attractiveness to the masses and children should also be assessed. Working models should be encouraged.

A formal report of the State Level Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition and One-Day Seminar should reach NCERT within one month after the conclusion of the exhibition. It should include the following:
  1.  Dates and venue of exhibition.
