Abstract: Bharat Ratna CNR Rao called for creativity in science to create interest among children, rather than focus on examination and marks. Speaking at the launch of National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) Maiya Prodigy fellowship for students on Friday, he said: "Getting 100100 in every examination is not a good thing as it shows that you are not thinking. Every idea is a sapling that will lead to forests, which in turn will lead to continents of science. Thinking needs to be constant. Science is interpretative and every scientist is different. There is no classroom for creativity, but we can create an atmosphere," he said.
