Science Teaching

The fund of scientific knowledge is increasing at a very fast pace. The knowledge of science is directly linked with the life style of a person and the development of a nation. To import this knowledge to masses in a easy, entertaining way is a big challenge. How the knowledge of science can be effectively transacted in the class room or otherwise, is very important. New methods of teaching science are being explored. Let us see how science can be taught effectively.


The issue of teaching of science has figured in umpteen number of discussions, debates both from the points of view of content as well as pedagogy in India and abroad. As a matter of fact it has several dimensions, which are of particular interest for the science teachers and educators.

In the study of science in general and physics in particular, experimentation has a vital role to play. It is a fact that there is no substitute for experimental observations in physics for the actual study of its principles. Yet there are other ways which may prove to be of great help for the clear explanation of physics principles.

Improvisation in Experimental Physics

Science does not come from books but from experiments and from our natural environment. Therefore, it is necessary to follow the practical oriented teaching of science, at least at secondary and senior secondary levels so as to make the subject interesting. But sometimes, due to lack of some traditional equipment/apparatus,

Activity Based Teching of Science at School Level

Since long, I have a very small question in my mind that what is the difference between present day science teaching and teaching of other subjects like History or Civics?
