Report: High School Summer Science Research Program (HSSSRP) - 2017

Go Back


High School Summer Science Research Program (HSSSRP) was started in year 2013 to promote basic research and science at high school level. The basic idea behind HSSSRP is to expose off high school students to research methods and techniques during their summer vacations so that the scientific talent can be identified at early stage of their academic career. This annual programme is jointly run on voluntary basis by ECOSF, Quaid-e-Azam University Islamabad Professor Bushra Mirza and Pakistan Society for Computational Science and Biology (PSCB).

The programme provides opportunity to the students to present their scientific research/projects. This year (2017), a large number of students participated in the programme but after rigorous evaluation, the following 10 projects were short listed.
