One of the instructors Ramesh Kumar Singh, emphasised on how to simplify the complex phenomenon of Science through activities and models that made teaching and learning more interesting. “We start the Class by making the students do simple activities. In the process, they themselves find out the answers and reasoning quite easily,” Singh says.
