Understanding the working of a capacitor is difficult if done only through theories and problem solving. Some real experiments with capacitors can help the student understand its working more easily. If we supplement that with simulation showing what is actually happening like charging/discharging, changing capacitance etc., the learners will be able to grasp the concept more effectively. Even if we lack necessary amenities to do real experiments with capacitors, simulation can help a lot in understanding capacitors in an interactive way.

Chemistry is everywhere – right from the food that students eat to the toys that they play with. If approached the right way, teachers can build on the natural curiosity of children and make chemistry a subject that they will enjoy learning.

The deeper you dig, the hotter it gets. Why so? This 2 minute animated story from Minute Earth tells you that.

Dear Teacher,

Khan Academy has launched a Talent Search for amazing explainers to help build the world’s most comprehensive, engaging library of videos.

To understand this, we will have to first know why astronauts/cosmonauts wear space suits. It is obvious that special space suits have been created because living in space is different than living on earth, or even flying in a aeroplane.

One tends to restrict teaching electromagnetic radiation only at a tabularly boring and a dour factual way. But, who says that facts can't be presented in an interesting way! Here's a poster from ICTS that talks about neutron stars and gamma rays that also briefly touches upon this year's Nobel Prize Physics winning idea that your senior school students would be keen more to know about.

Periods are something women and girls have been having for thousands of years – it’s the reason you and I are even here. And yet around the world, there’s still an element of shame associated with a woman’s monthly cycle.

Most students spend a big fraction of their study time preparing themselves for answering questions – for examinations. This becomes all the more important when a student writes a competitive examination such as the IIT entrance. In such a situation, the busy student tries to consult as many question banks from as many sources as possible, ensuring that (s)he has created his/her own database with (almost) all possible variations in questions from a certain theme!
