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!

People usually blow bubbles in the air using bubble pipes or plastic wands purchased from a store. That isn’t the only way to make bubbles. There are many things around your house that can be used to launch bubbles. But bubbles don’t have to float in the air; they can also be made in containers on table tops, or on top of all sorts of surfaces. All you need to have fun with bubbles is some dishwashing soap, lots of empty containers, and, perhaps most important, a sense of play. People often say that play may be fun but it is a waste of time.

When a white light passes through a prism, it gets dispersed into various colors according to its wavelengths. This phenomenon is easily seen in a rainbow or when you use a simple prism like a ruler in front of sunlight. The principle of dispersion of light is applied in spectroscopy to study many phenomenons and topics in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and many other disciplines.  Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation (light).

Science is a process which demands observation, thinking, making hypothesis, designing and performing experimentation, collecting data and analyzing data, making inferences, replicating the tests, generalizing and exploring further. To understand this process and promoting scientific thinking and creativity among the learners I visited one of the school of Uttarkashi District.This is one of the government primary school of Uttarkashi located in the semi urban Gyansu which is connected to Uttarkashi town.

I am a science teacher of the middle school at Swami Vivekananda Rural Education Society School. I teach chemistry and biology. I enjoy my classes when my children enjoy learning. This is why I try to keep my lessons as innovative and application based as possible.

Even in 2017 in the era of so-called smartboards, Eleanor Watts' The Blackboard Book holds its ground on using the blackboard space. It aims to help teachers develop two important skills:

When it comes to what you bite, chew and swallow, your choices have a direct and long-lasting effect on the most powerful organ in your body: your brain. So which foods cause you to feel so tired after lunch? Or so restless at night? Mia Nacamulli takes you into the brain to find out.

Take them through this quick quiz after playing the video.

By doing art, students can create and communicate new ideas. By seeing art, students can be inspired by new directions and new ideas. Check this Karen Haydock article where she draws from her wide experience on science reaching and learning.
