Bangalore, Aug (IANS): A 10-day Edinburgh International Science Festival (EISF) will be held at the Bharatiya City complex here from Aug 30.

"The fest is coming to India for the first time since EISF was founded 25 years ago (1989) to engage youth and spark their curiosity in science and technology. We plan to showcase our works in a country that is making advances in science and technology," festival director and chief executive Simon Gage told reporters here Thursday.

"Each student will help in treating a leg wound and perform keyhole surgery using real surgical equipment. They will gain experience in removing a cyst and learning how and why blood samples are taken," Gage said.

In Adventure Robots, participants will build and control Lego Mindstorm Robots by learning to use basic computer programming software." In Math Masters, students will learn tips and tricks for super fast mental math calculations and solve puzzles to develop lateral thinking," Gage said.
