Our faculty, students and researchers work together everyday to contribute to a better world by grappling with urgent problems we are facing in India. We conduct rigorous work to produce high quality learning resources and publications to contribute to public discourse and social change. Here, we feature a sample from our work for everyone to access. You can explore featured resources, policies, and the latest publications from the University.
To explore all the work of our University, please visit our publications repository.
Explore big questions around 4 themes: black holes, the wound healing capacity of the skin, Higgs bosons, and the matrix of life.
Use the activity sheets in ‘A milky way to learn biology’, ‘What do we really see’, and ‘Trees and seasons in a changing world’ to introduce students to thinking like a scientist, the human vision, and neighborhood trees.
Discover how astronomers measure distances in space in our new section ‘How do we know?’ Explore how engaging students in raising an urban terrace farm can strengthen their understanding and involvement with the local environment in ‘Pedagogy of dirty hands’.
Try out the concept builder from ‘Physics for closeted Aristotelians’ to find out how well your students understand motion under gravity.
Read our ‘Research to practice’ section to discover how to create embodied learning experiences for students in the science classroom. Or learn more about the first image of a black hole in our section ‘Hot off the press’.
Looking for more? Enjoy our pull-out poster on human skin and booklet on identifying 10 common trees.
Explore three ‘Emerging Trends in Chemistry’ – new elements, metal-organic frameworks, and fluorescent tags. Read ‘Serendipity’ & ‘Annals of History’ to re-live the exciting jigsaw-puzzle-like process of scientific discovery – whether of a novel protein or the structure of DNA.
Engage with the process of encouraging peer instruction in the science classroom through ‘Students as Teachers’, or use our activity sheet ‘Early Bird Nature Detectives Bingo’ to get students to observe (non-human) life in their backyards.
Use our ‘Science Lab’ section to get your students to calculate their molar masses (!) or understand pressure and volume through simple experiments with easily available low-cost materials.
Discover the chemicals in everyday phenomenon through ‘The Scent Orchestra of Flowers’ & ‘The Chemistry of Life’.
Explore the concept of energy from three very different perspectives with ‘The Mystery of Dark Energy’, ‘Powering (human) Life on Earth’ & ‘Clean Energy’. Plus, enjoy our two pull-out posters on ‘Doppler Effect’ and ‘Some interesting scents of flowers’.
