Letter of Invitation

Dear Friends,


QUANTA will be 23 this year. It is a matter of great satisfaction for us that this International Science Competition, we started in 1995, will see its 23rd anniversary in November this year. Its a score we are proud of.

Over these years several Schools and Colleges have participated in this event from all over the world and from India. Our heartfelt thanks to all of them for making this event a success. It is only the participants and their sincere honest efforts that have made this event so popular that it could see two decades. The team leaders who have taken pains to train their students and organize travel, bear the responsibility that comes with escorting children, we cannot thank them enough. The international judges who made time over all these years to visit India and judge the events so professionally contributed immensely to the popularity of this event. We warmly thank them.
