In an effort to strengthen science education in the country, an inter-institutional collaborative project, ‘Enrichment of Resource Material for Science Education,’ was recently launched in the Capital. The project attempts to reconceptualise science resource material and focus on the potential and scope of ‘science kits’ to popularise the subject. These low cost portable science kits vary depending on level, theme or even needs.
The project has been jointly undertaken by the National Council of Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC), Ministry of Science and Technology; Unesco, Central Institute of Education (CIE), Delhi University; and Society for Education and Social Development (SESD). The project also has an active involvement of experts from the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) Mumbai, Delhi University Centre for Science Education and Communication, Institute for Life Long Learning (ILLL) Delhi University, Jamia Milia Islamia University, colleges of Delhi University, IP University, Ignou, DIETS, schools of Delhi, among others.
