The Infosys Science Foundation believes in nurturing and encouraging students and budding scientists. Our programs that target students and educators expose them to the wider world of research and academia. Hands on workshops, interactions with towering intellects like Amartya Sen, Manjul Bhargava and others, ongoing programs like Limit Infinity and the Physics Immersion Program are all part of our endeavor to nurture the scholars and teachers of tomorrow.
The Foundation ran a pilot program in December 2016 with 50 B.Sc. 3rd year students at the Regional Institute of Education, Mysore.
In 2021, the Immersion Program was conducted virtually.
Learning From The Best
Along with hands on workshops and experiments, participating students get an opportunity to interact with physicists from around the world. Top scientists deliver exclusive talks and engage with the students as well.
Experts from among Infosys Prize laureates and jurors who have been part of the Immersion Program include Prof. Srinivas Kulkarni (CalTech), Prof. Rajaram Nityananda (Azim Premji University), Prof. Ashoke Sen (HRI, Allahabad), and Prof G. Ravindrakumar (TIFR).
