Science International Forum conducted an innovative program called Kuwait Children’s Science Congress on 17th November 2017. The Indian Educational school had groups in both the Senior and Junior category. The junior category consisted of yet another two groups. One of the junior groups had done a project on the topic soap nuts. They stated that the modern generation needed to replace the polluting chemical soaps and detergents with eco-friendly, biodegradable, organic and non-toxic soap nuts which is a multipurpose cleaning agent that can be reused up to six times. The other Junior group’s topic was the production of non-caloric sugar using Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni (Sweet Tulsi). They felt that this was a boon for diabetic patients. They also believed that using sweet Tulsi has superior properties than many artificial sweeteners.  The senior group did a project about Microbeads something that many people are not aware of. They talked about the devastating impacts of microbeads on the environment, the solutions and the things we as citizens can do. The topic is one of the many pressing issues in our world today since microbeads are found in various cosmetic products. All the innovations which were exhibited dealt with the most pressing issues which include the environment and health. KCSC is a way to exhibit scientific knowledge and aptitude which requires research, understanding and experimentation of the topic. It also develops a sense of curiosity in the minds of budding scientists and also teaches students how to conduct a scientific study. The students are thus trained to analyze the problem and seek solutions.
