    Out Reach Programme:

    • Gave Lecture Demonstrations in more than one hundred institutions including IIT Physics Department, Rural Schools, Corporation Schools, Private Schools and several Colleges.
    • Developed a number of Teaching aids in Electronics starting from Basic Electronics to advanced Interfacing of Computers in the Laboratory using the concept of “Learning by Doing”. The developed modules are unique in that there is a “simulation” package and a corresponding “Hands ON” hardware kit. The modules are very well received all over the globe ( presented in several international conferences and workshops, in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Srilanka, Indonesia, Taiwan, Kenya, UK, USA, Japan, Canada, Germany, etc.) These modules are now manufactured and marketed by two private companies in India through IIT.
    • Initiated on a National Science Day ( February 28, 2004) one hour “Interactive Demo Sessions” on every Saturady (between 3 to 4 pm) with public and children who visit the Periyar Science and Technology Centre. (We have received excellent reviews and feedback from the public on these programmes for the past three years and more).
    • Involved from the beginning, in the National Physics Olympiad programmes and activities in India. Also accompanied the first batch of 5 students from India to participate in the International Physics Olympiad competitions in the year 1998 at Reykjavik, Iceland.
    • As part of the national level project, namely, National Programme of Technology enhanced Learning (NPTEL), two courses have been recorded on Basic Electronics. One is a Video Course and the other is a web-based course. Both are based on the principle of “Learning by Doing”. They contain video clipping of many working circuits built and demonstrated for the benefit of the reader.
    • Presently coordinating the Computer based Physics Curriculum development for the Kuruvilla Jacob Initiatives in School Education to develop Computer based Lessons for classes 6 th to 9 th.
