Outreach Activities

  1. Conducted two outreach programs (BASIC IV & BIOSCOPE I) at two rural schools (Government Senior Secondary School, Bani and Government Senior Secondary School, Biar) in Hamirpur district of Himachal Pradesh under Student DBT Star College Program in collaboration with Deen Dayal Upadhaya (DDU) and Ramjas College. There were at least 10 activities for the students prepared by different groups. Our college students, Sunidhi Aneja and Madhav demonstrated "Life in a drop of water through foldcope."The idea was to take student's interest towards a portable microscope i.e. a foldscope, which is cheap, accessible and easy to use so that students feel it easier to satisfy their curosity when they see something microscopic around them. Videos were recorded and students felt very happy with the foldscope workshop.
  2. “Learning Science: The ‘Do It Yourself’ way”
    A Three day workshop entitled “Learning Science: The ‘Do It Yourself’ way” was organized for school students jointly by the department of Botany and Zoology under the aegis of DBT-Star Scheme for College, in collaboration with National Bal Bhavan, Delhi from July 17-19, 2019. 38 students of classes IX-XI from different schools of Delhi and National Bal Bhavan participated in the workshop meant to inculcate their interest and curiosity in biological sciences.
  3. One day interdisciplinary workshop “New Frontiers in Science
    As a part of outreach program, students from various schools were also invited for this exhibit cum workshop. Around 110 students from three different schools attended the event. Enthusiasm and curiosity amongst the school students towards latest research trends in science and technology was quite evident. Interaction and sharing of ideas between school students and the participants/presenters made the event even more successful.
