About Us

 

 

The role of science in the progress of human civilization has been crystal clear. While scientific culture spread and flourished in many parts of the world for centuries, Tibet as a country remained aloof. Post 1959, Tibetans in exile under the leadership of His Holiness the IVth Dalai Lama made concerted effort to introduce modern education in the exile Tibetan school curriculum besides ensuring the preservation and promotion of the rich Tibetan Buddhist heritage with its rich philosophical tradition. Science is undeniably recognized as one of the key areas of modern education.

 

Science and math are often perceived to be difficult subjects by school students in general and Tibetan students in particular. The existence of such a perception hampers the formation of a scientifically conscious and competent Tibetan society in the long run. This can be remedied by demonstrating to the young students the rather rewarding experience that studying science and pursuing a scientific career can be by not only ensuring individual success but benefitting the society at large.

 

A need for a platform where Tibetans pursuing and looking to pursue scientific career can interact, network and learn from each other, and contribute to our community forms the basis of Tibetan Scientific Society (TS2) which is a non-profitable organization started by a group of young Tibetan students pursuing advanced studies in scientific fields in India and abroad.
