Students between age gr 10 - 17 yrs also participate in this research program.

NCSTC, a branch of DST, has declared the new main theme "Science, Technology and Innovations for Clean, Green and Healthy Nation" as well as six other sub themes this year. To make acquainted with the theoretical knowledge of these themes and the research methodology, a massive program of series of 22 training workshops has been organized in Mumbai. National Children Science Congress, (NCSC) was started in 1992 and completed its Silver jubilee last year with the objectives to greater the interest in learning science and conducting research work in science, and to deviate individuals towards fundamental sciences. Young scientists have done intensive research work on various topics of various branches of Science.

Two days Resource Persons training workshop was held on 9th and 10th July. On 14th  July, ward level teachers training workshop for all 6 wards of North Mumbai has been organized at Udayachal High School, Vikhroli east. On 22 July 2018, parents training workshop for all three zones North, West and South Mumbai has been organized at Shishu Vihar Madhyamik Vidyalaya, Hindu Colony. On 24th July, ward level teachers training workshop for all 6 wards of West Mumbai has been organized at Pradnya Bodhini High School, Goregaon east. A ward level teachers training workshop for all 6 wards of South Mumbai has been organized at Anjuman Islam girls school, CSMT on the 28th of July. All the workshops are free of cost. This activity is rooted in Mumbai, under the leadership of the president of NCSC, Mr B.B Jhadav where thousands of students from reputed schools participate, with hundreds of them winning gold medals at National level. Last year, six projects of Mumbai were selected for national level at Ahmedabad and one of them was selected in the top 15 projects of India.

This year too, all efforts are being made by the organizers in Mumbai to give the best projects for the national event. As a part of this, it has been decided to train maximum number of teachers, targeted to encourage nearly 2000 students to make research projects.
