Background: Empirical inculcation is vital for producing quality research professionals and upon realizing the increasing demand of emerging scientific research professionals, National Academy of Young Scientist (NAYS) launched its science for youth (S4Y) program in Pakistan with its emphasis on empiricism. Methods: S4Y team was galvanized to undertake this task and different scientific activities were organized by them in different schools and colleges of Pakistan during 2011 2012. Scientific activities that were arranged included seminars on diverse scientific subjects and career counseling sessions. Results: Response of students showed that the implementation of this program can contribute in achieving the target of producing qualified skilled research professionals and upturning the Pakistan literacy rate. Experimental activities were also planned but its implementation was restricted due to financial strains. 39 activities were conducted in 2012 in the schools and colleges of all the provinces of Pakistan on the importance of science in the world, scientific discoveries, and career counseling. Conclusion: These activities at school and college level were appreciated by the students and staff members and proved very fruitful for defining the scientific fields and goals of scientific studies for Pakistani youth. Implementation of experimental activities in future will help students in getting awareness about the ways through which science explores this world.
