Making experiment based learning of physics, a culture.
Teaching and learning of Physics has been an academic challenge over the years. The monotony of teaching the same syllabus and the unimaginative conventional method of imparting the concepts have made it a tedious, tough and stressful subject. There’s a fear of it in most students’ mind.
Thus, IAPT (Indian Association of Physics Teachers) realized it was time to look beyond the expected strategies of teaching and explore the magic of physics in the simplest possible ways, which are not only cost effective but exciting and easily accessible. Thus, ‘ANVESHIKA’ was born.
Anveshika is a revolutionary laboratory open to students and teachers of any school, where they can experience the excitement of physics which is missing from classrooms.
Eye catching and entertaining low cost activities that bring alive the dull sounding concepts and bring wonder to the students and the teachers alike. The members can develop their own exhibits, delve deeper into any concepts that appeal to them, brainstorm their ideas with peers and experts, avail guidance of resource persons from IIT and other institutions of national/international repute.
Instituted since 2000 by Indian Association of Physics Teachers (IAPT), It has the full backing of IIT Kanpur and Vigyan Prasar, Delhi. The renowned Prof H.C.Verma of IIT Kanpur and Dr R. N. Kapoor, SGM College, Kanpur are its main resource persons, under whose guidance 11 Anveshika centres have been established across the country. BVN-IAPT Anveshika is the latest to join the National Anveshika Network of India.
The historical experiments and the devices described in physics books convey to the student a picture of something confined to big laboratories, far removed from ordinary life and unachievable by common people. This makes the subject dull and very stressful and students resort to memorization.
Majority of physics teachers are unaware that many difficult concepts can be easily put across through very simple activities in the classroom, thus saving a lot of explanation time. Even those with an aptitude for such activities do not know from where to procure the material and their specifications. Anveshika is equipped to provide the knowhow.
Anveshika aims to bring in innovation in physics teaching/learning to make it more appealing to both students and teachers.
BVN-IAPT Anveshika provides such a centre at Delhi, located at Birla Vidya Niketan, Pushp Vihar IV, New Delhi. The resource persons are experienced teachers of five different schools of Delhi who have trained with Prof H.C.Verma at IIT Kanpur at the many workshops held there.
There is a very nominal fee of Rs 50/- per month, to ensure that the opportunity is valued by the participants.
