·         Demonstration of simple experiments

Typical Expts:  Wave motion on slinkey and Straw, Magetic Shielding, Bernouli theorem,  warm water floats on cold water, Motion of a magnets in Al-tube, Water does not fall, key-bottle experiment, Law of conservation of angular momentum, Sky appears blue, Total internal reflection in meter scale and dettol bottle, Convergence lense diverges rays, Electromagnetic wave do not propogates in conductor.






Feedback from participants: Many participants told us after the workshop that first time I learnt Physics. Earlier we used to to solve large no. of problems. Students also questuioned I f we take Physics as a Career, how we generate wealth. Then I show detail  of Scope of Physics using PPT in the area of Physics: Scope of Physics in higher education) where Physics students get economical freedom. These areas are-

1. DRDO  2. BARC   3. GATE/ UGC-NET/ Ph.D entrance in university 4. JAM-IIT    5. IISER- Kolkata & Mohali 6. Integrated M.Tech after B.Sc  7. Scientific officer post in Cabinet secretariate. Etc (8) ISRO (9) Teaching post in Universities etc.
