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.
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.
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’.
