28th February 2020 | Optics@Satyam College of Education, Noida
OpticsIt is really good to come across Teacher education colleges putting in extra efforts towards building future teachers. Yesterday, on science day, we were invited by Satyam College of Education in Noida for a workshop on Optics, for their students with science background. Since these future teachers were B. Sc or M.Sc in the sciences, their interest and fascination with hands-on science, as well as reasoning through observations and concepts was very good, even though most people had never done any experiments with even simple Optics. So seeing reflection, refraction, image formation through curved mirrors and lenses, shadow formation, umbra, penumbra, rainbow formation - everything was new and exciting..... It feels good to work with bright eyed young generation women, in whose hands the future teaching of Indian children lies. Thanks to the College principal, Dr. Bineeta Agarwal, and the HoD of Education, Dr. Preeti Goel, this workshop was a great way to celebrate science day for us, immersed in luminous and beautiful science experiments, sharing the fascination with youth.

24th February 2020 | Density and Floatation@Lady Irwin College, Delhi
Density A session on Density and Floatation with student teachers of B. El. Ed in Lady Irwin College. We started with a lava lamp. After that, lots of objects made out of wood, metal, rubber, plastics, vegetables and fruits etc were tested for floating and sinking. But the next exercise was to use some means to reverse the floating behavior, which led to great fun and some very interesting experiments (like making a hole through an apple to see if it will still float or sink!). After intuitive explorations and explanations, came the time to establish principles like density (is it only packing density of particles we are concerned with?) relative density, the contribution of shape to finally establish buoyancy and Archimedes principle, through actual measurements. It is also interesting to observe the loss in weight of objects when they float partially.
