Science demo activity with school students

Visit IISER Pune

Student groups from schools, junior & senior colleges, universities, Non Government’s Organizations (NGOs), and institutes are welcome to visit IISER Pune. ‚Äč

We have a large campus equipped with lectures halls, teaching as well as research labs with state-of-the-art instruments, science activity centre, science media centre, housing, dining and recreational facilities, and a well-stocked library. Visitors to the institute get a flavour of research and academic life on campus. We are happy to show to students of various disciplines, instruments and equipment that they may have learnt about but haven't seen. The visiting groups can also be given an opportunity to interact with IISER Pune faculty members from relevant fields. The visits are customised to suit the background and age-group of the students.
