“For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, debate.”
The Inter-University Debate Competition, which is organized by the Institute annually, aims to cultivate the essence of intellectual discussion through logical reasoning and creative argument, in aspiring young scientists. Since its inception more than a decade ago, the Inter-University Debate Competition has uncovered the talents of undergraduates from universities islandwide.
The most recent encounter was held on the 2nd of March 2020, where University of Sri Jayawardanapura emerged victorious, and University of Jaffna and University of Ruhuna won the second and third places respectively.
The Inter-Level Debate Competition is a yearly event in the CCS calendar, aimed at recognizing and developing the debating skills of the CCS students. Teams from each Level contend against each other, where they debate on contemporary and innovative topics based on science. Eventually, the best debators are chosen to form the College team to compete at the Inter-University Debate Competition.
