Open Laboratory: The Exploratory

Experimental Science is the Achilles heel of Indian Science. We are sorely lacking on this front. We maybe number one in soft skills but we are way behind in the manufacturing sector. One needs to urgently addresss this. Activity to give hands on experience to students is envisaged. This will be in the form of both basic and advanced exploratory wherein there will be measuring instruments, probes and laboratory equipments. Student guidance will be provided and the perspective is to encourage the student to handle the different equipments and discover the laws of science on their own. Attention will be paid to safety aspects especially in chemical experiments. The idea is to instill in students the joys of inquiry and thus equip them with tools to harness their imaginations. The motto of this facility will be to

“To Build, Design, Innovate and Tinker.”
