Indian Association of Physics Teachers


An Experimental Physics Centre, established at SGM Inter College, Indira Nagar, Kanpur in 2001, provides a base for generating interest in Experimental Physics in young students upto +2 level, through learning by doing. Faciities exist for conducting Teachers’ Orientation Programmes for encouraging them to undertake class room teaching through demonstrations. A mobile unit gives demonstrations in schools by prior appointment. Each demonstration session is of about 2-3 hour duration. This is done at three levels :

Lower : For class VI to VIII

Middle : For class IX to X

Upper : For class XI to XI

This programme generates interest in students for Physics and clarifies the basic principles. Anveshika will soon be shifted to its own building. A number of such centres are now coming up in the country.
