Dr AS Rao Awards Council (ASRAC):  The main aim in establishing the Council
was to propagate the ideals of late Dr AS Rao (1914-2003), by way of spotting
talent in young  children,  and  nurturing them. One way to do  this was  by conducting a competitive Science Talent Search Examination (STSE) every year
for High School students all over Andhra Pradesh.

Besides the annual STSE, Workshops are conducted for top students giving an opportunity to them to get experience in conducting science lab experiments and projects, and interact with senior Faculty.

Special Capacity Enhancement Programmes are organized for secondary school teachers,so that they can excel as teachers. 

All these activities are planned and implemented with the help of service oriented academics, employees of ECIL and philanthropists. The Council functions with a meager corpus fund raised out of life memberships, and with the altruistic work of several volunteers.
