What is Science Challenge?

Science is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. Science can be classified under earth, life, and physical sciences. A deeper understanding of each aspect of science can lead to unraveling the mysteries of the universe and solving the most complex scientific issues. Science and Technology are two facets that can be combined to result in the most fascinating innovations.

WishWin’s Science challenge aims to help students develop, understand, and learn the various aspects of science and help prepare them for future scientific careers.
