Outreach Activities

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many interactive lecture programs are conducted online for science teachers and students of Classes X, XI and XII. To Participate in the forthcoming programs, please contact us.

ETU organises the science outreach programs by sending out invitations to schools/colleges through the facilitators or directly. The Hall of Science has a select group of Resource people who are conveners of the various programs conducted at the Madan Mohan Malaviya Amphitheatre. The lectures are arranged by conveners selected for each program. These programs are half-day programs in which at least three lectures and sometimes demonstrations of experiments are conducted. Although these programs focus on the higher Classes (i.e. X, XI, XII) we do organize and conduct programs for young students.

The lecture programs organized and conducted by the CNR Rao Hall of Science and Education Technology Unit at the Madan Mohan Malaviya Amphitheatre, CNR Rao Hall of Science, JNCASR.

Eminent scientists involved in research in frontier areas from JNCASR, IISc, RRI and various other institutes across the country are invited to deliver lectures and conduct experiments/demonstrations. The program ends with an interactive Question and Answer session where participants are encouraged to take part by writing in /posing their questions regarding any of the lectures during the program.
