An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Indian making Science fun for Pak students

In these times of mistrust and halting peace moves – this is a welcome news… at least something is happening in Pakistan that they let an Indian work at!! Interesting article

An Indian educational expert is making science learning fun in Pakistani schools by using his simple, inexpensive models made from everyday items that explain the fundamentals of science.

Arvind Gupta from Pune has held training sessions for hundreds of teachers and students in several cities across Pakistan.

Over the last 20 years, Gupta has developed a technique to make simple toys presenting fundamental scientific laws from junk.

“This is a cheaper way of learning with no cost of laboratories, by using junk like matchboxes, thread etc,” Daily Times quoted Gupta as saying. “You don’t need sophisticated equipment to learn many of the fundamentals of science.”

Gupta, an electrical engineer from IIT, Kanpur, said his technique was about making learning fun. “This process goes beyond words. It helps students learn in an innovative manner.”

He urged the introduction of India-Pakistan exchange programmes for teachers and for increased people-to-people contacts in all sectors.
