The National Science Concours or NSC is the first of its kind National Level Online Science Competition that was started by Pivotal in 2013. Since 2017, it has been part of the Not-for-Profit organisation, Foundation for Innovation and Experiential Learning.

NSC is a not for profit endeavour and we aspire to provide a platform for all science enthusiasts from different backgrounds to experience and enjoy science in the outdoors. It caters to students of class VIth to class XIIth.

The National Science Concours is an effort to encourage the students to think out of the box and create masterpieces in a congenial environment. Our endeavour is to have the students experience and learn science in the most creative and innovative way. Our effort is to promote science in a way that it becomes interesting and exciting for the students.
