LSS is the sole initiative of SPADES—Society for the Promotion and Development of Engineering and Sciences. With the progressive mission of promoting the countless realms of sciences and engineering, Spades is a society that stands to kindle the spark of scientific innovation in students from all over the country. It firmly believes in the idea that societal progression can only be achieved through innovative developments in these fields.
SPADES’ initiative of introducing the LUMS Science Symposium stems from the educational environment that the LUMS community fosters in its members. The university, through its amicable atmosphere, encourages scientific inquiry and research. LUMS cultivates a culture that harbors love and strength, allowing people to connect and share ideas in unprecedented ways.

SPADES took this initiative with the main aim of promoting the passion for scientific research and inquiry in schools, colleges, and universities. It is our firm belief that by allowing students of schools and colleges to engage in university-level research, we can inculcate in them the spirit of seeking scientific solutions to modern-world issues; The idea is to equip an entire generation with the tools necessary to excel in the fields of science. It is a proven fact that experiential learning goes beyond the conventional means of acquiring knowledge. Such initiatives would, therefore, also ensure that our younger generation can contribute profusely to the socio-economic progress of this country.
Hello everyone! I'm Qasim, one of the conveners of LSS this year. Here at LSS, not only do we test the knowledge and skills, but we polish and develop them firsthand. With the help of inspiring Professors, dedicated Research Assistants and Seniors, we teach the skills that help students become independent researchers. The academia expands, discoveries of new phenomena, and theories require the thirst for researching and investigating the topic in question. LSS gives you the ever-longing taste of what it feels like to analyze, go deeper and explore. Being part of this journey, aiding young minds, is part of the impressive feat of sharing what we learn amongst talented youth and fostering self-growth; I couldn't be more grateful. I wish the best of luck to all participants this year. Live the event!
Hello everyone! My name is Ali Zulqarnain and I’ll be serving as the Convener of the LUMS Science Symposium this year. This is an event that is near and dear to my heart, since it is one of the only avenues through which I believe I can contribute towards the promotion of academic research not just in STEM but across various fields in a country like Pakistan, which is sadly deprived of a thriving research culture. Looking forward to seeing you all really soon!
SPADES family is eager to welcome students from all academic backgrounds to this auspicious event. LUMS Science Symposium provides an unparalleled opportunity, to undergraduates and other students, of showcasing their innovative research ideas and testing their own mettle. The event entails knowledge-based interaction between experts and students, allowing all to broaden the scope of their minds. The learning experience being offered at LSS stands to augment the participants’ personal skillset. It is high time our student bodies started playing their role in the development of this country’s intellectual capital.
