With the vision of building a community where next generation of researchers are fostered
4 Facts we believe
1. Bangladeshi students are awesome
Bangladeshi teenagers have always proved themselves by doing amazing things: from winning IMO Gold Medals to becoming FIDE master at the age of 10- we have a lot. Falcon Academy of Sciences wants to provide STEM enthusiasts a highly organized system to succeed in completing complex real life research works, starting from as early as from highschool!
2. But they are still challenged by research fundamentals and skills
Falcon Academy of Sciences will prepare students for research by training them up with relevant skill sets and subsequent testing via short assignments. We believe in improving rather than ranting.
3. Affordability is the key barrier to discover wonders
We often fail to live by heavy dreams owing to the involvement of finances. However, Falcon promises to change the scenario for research from now on.. We have been able to secure ample fundings and are looking for more- these all to make research affordable for you to access. We want to hone your interest first in research, and not get bogged down by financial hurdles. The usual price of a summer research program varies from 1,500-7,500 USD, whereas, we are bringing it all to you within 3499 BDT. And that’s not it! If that amount is still a badger, you are welcome to apply for our financial aid by submitting verified financial documents.
4. Researchers are rarely idolized
We all once dreamt of becoming Einstein - a story from a very distant past. Remember what else we dreamt with that? Chocolate seller- Yes, that’s how early it is. As we grew, we were hardly introduced to our own country’s Einsteins: all those Bangladeshi pioneers and researchers who revolutionized sectors of science. Falcon aims to turn the tide.
