October 2019

1. Workshop for School Teachers on Computational Thinking (CT) and Scientific Inquiry (SI) in collaboration with our colaborator from Northwestern University, Chicago, USA.
The workshop will introduce high school teachers to computational thinking and its use in conducting scientific inquiry in the classroom. Relevance of computational thinking tools for modern science and its pedagogical application will be discusssed, along with hands-on sessions on inquiry as well as computational thinking. Teachers will design CTSI modules for their own classrooms, along with co-designers from Northwstern University and IISER Pune.
Dates: October 10-12, 2019

The camp aims to motivate and excite young minds about sciencet and provide a glimpse of current innovations in research. The students participating in this five-day camp will have an excellent opportunity to interact with the best scientific leaders of this country. The camp would provide thought provoking lectures, open discussions, hands-on lab sessions, and group activities. A special feature of this time's camp is that Nobel Laureate, Prof. Eric Wieschaus has agreed to interact with the students at the camp. Click here to know more.
Dates: January 7-11, 2020
 
2. Workshop on Symmetry on Physics and Mathematics for UG Teachers
The deep relationship between Physics and Mathematics, where ideas from one have given important insights and applications in the other, ​is often not adequately emphasized in B.Sc./M.Sc. level teaching of these subjects. The aim of this workshop is to expose Indian teachers in mathematics and physics to these shared grounds. Physical context of mathematical ideas, and vice versa, will be discussed by taking Symmetry and Groups as an example.
Dates: January 14-18, 2020
 
3. Regional Pedagogy Workshop for College Science Teachers at Holy Cross College, Agartala, Tripura in collaboration with DBT/DST, Govt. of India
This is a part of a series of workshops, designed to introduce teachers to Research-based Pedagogical Tools (RBPTs), that focus on process of science rather than information, and help students develop critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. The workshops also give teachers a platform to network with peers and to get information on funding opportunities. The participants trained in previous national-level workshops by a team of experts from UK will be trainers in this workshop. Teachers from all science disciplines, teaching UG or PG level courses in and around North East are eligible to participate.
Dates: January 2020 (exact dates, TBC); Location: Agartala, Tripura
