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.

What role do ‘chemical experiences’ play in helping children grasp the particulate nature of matter and use this idea to explain observed phenomena?
How do we use the art and aesthetics of lithography to introduce children to chemical reactions? What skills would children learn from this multisensorial and fun approach to science?
Why is it important for teachers to trace the history of evolving definitions of elements and atoms, and communicate the conditional nature of their validity?
Can we use poetry to teach chemistry? How would it change the ways in which students engage with science?
Join us in exploring these questions in three sections of our latest issue – Our Chemical World, I am a Scientist, and Snippets.
Why do party balloons rise in air? How high can they go? When do they drift to the ground?
How much water do plants lose? Do they lose it only as water vapour? Can they regulate water-loss?
Which chemical bonds are stronger — covalent or ionic? How can we tell?
Can we grow a dense forest of native species in congested urban spaces or degraded land? How long would this take?
Who were the first people to measure the size of the earth? How did they do it?
