Menaka Prakashan is known for its excellent production quality, wide distribution network, multimedia operations and clean business practices. Thus, when MSTA decided to come out with official handbooks on the Dr Homi Bhabha Balvaidnyanik Competition for the first time ever, Menaka Prakashan became the obvious choice. Bringing these handbooks to you for the second successive year is a matter of pride and pleasure for us a Menaka Prakashan.

Based on the feedback that we received last year, we have made some useful changes this year. Thus, you will find that the format is now even more reader-friendly. This year, we have included additional questions for practice for 6th and 9th standard.

We have added one more service for you this year. If you want, you may also purchase copies of this book online by accessing www.menakabooks.com.

Students can purchase these books from a local book shop or can order from www.menakabooks.com or from href=”http://www.amazon.in”>www.amazon.in. Alternatively, one can order it via ‘menakabooks’ app available on Google Play Store or on Apple App Store.

The competition is intended to spot and nurture students’ interest in science at a very early age. It is held for two segments – 6th standard students and 9th standard students. And hence the official handbooks are designed separately for both these segments.

To prepare really well for the prestigious competition, the aspiring young scientists need to know a lot more than merely a long list of likely questions for the written examination. This is so because, besides the written examination, the students are also required to go through a practical examination, a project and an interview. No other publication offers such a complete book at present.

Written by subject experts and authored by MSTA, these handbooks will equip the students, parents and teachers with all essential information such as:

  • The nature of the competition
  • Do’s and don’ts for the written test, practical test, project and interview
  • Question papers of 2014, 2015 and 2016 with answers and explanations
  • Model question sets for practicals for 6th and 9th standard
  • Select samples of work of past achievers
  • Useful tips from past achievers
  • Additional reference material
  • And a lot, lot more…
