By implication the CSC prompts children to think of some significant societal problem, ponder over its causes and subsequently try and solve the same using he scientific process. This involves close and keen observation, raising pertinent questions, building models, predicting solutions on the basis of a model, trying out various possible alternatives and arriving at an optimum solution using experimentation, field work, research and innovative ideas. The Children's Science Congress encourages a sense of discovery . It emboldens the participants to question many aspects of our progress and development and express their findings in vernacular . In which area should one do research? Every year a focal theme is announced for the CSC. The children are expected to carry out projects related to the focal theme and the identified sub-themes. Activity books are available to help guide teachers and the child scientist. A group of children not exceeding five, can do the project with the help of scientists, school science teachers, co-ordinators of school science clubs, activists of science based voluntary organization etc. The teachers/guides receive special orientation on the theme of the SCS every year .
