Indian Society of Chemists and Biologists - Local Chapter ( West Zone ) : Udaipur
The idea of Local Chapter of Indian Society of Chemists and Biologists was mooted in an informal discussion among distinguished chemists and biologists involved in teaching and research here in Udaipur. It was strongly felt that methods of teaching and access to quality education in schools (read resource deficient schools) have largely been neglected.
The charm and interest in science has been eclipsed by “Packages” of commerce and IT industry. The fundamental science has been left in limbo.
The need of the hour is to rejuvenate interest among students aspiring for career in science. They need to be properly trained, educated and made to sense that opportunities in science are immense. The only need is to properly shape our process of learning. Problems of those who have poor access to resources, particularly in rural areas, need to be addressed immediately. It can not be left to governments alone. We have to bridge the gap between ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’. Those who are capable have to come forward and contribute in whatever possible ways. Education has suffered more because of water-tight compartments that have been created among different levels of science education. Know More
