About Jawaharlal Nehru National Science Exhibition
With a view to encouraging, popularising and inculcating scientific temper among the children of the country, NCERT organizes Jawaharlal Nehru National Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition(JNNSMEE) for Children every year where children showcase their talents in science and mathematics and their applications in different areas related to our everyday life.
This exhibition is being organized since 1971.
In order to ensure the widest possible participation and involvement of students and teachers in the programme, NCERT organises this exhibition in two phases. In the first phase, exhibitions are held in each and every state and union territory from the district to the state level. This first phase is known as State Level Science, Mathematics and Environment Exhibition (SLSMEE) for Children.
Notably, the 47th JNNSMEE-2020 and 48th JNNSMEE-2021 were being organized together in online mode due to the pandemic. The ideas of all the selected exhibits have been uploaded on the NCERT portal.
