As part of its efforts to popularise science among students, the Centre has asked over 5000 scientists working in premier scientific institutions, including the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), to teach in schools and colleges across India.
Union science and technology minister Jitendra Singh announced that scientists have been asked to undertake 12 hours of lecture classes in an academic year in public-funded schools and colleges across the country.
The modalities are being worked out to identify schools and colleges for this purpose in coordination with the Ministry of Human Resources Development.
Singh observed that this kind of engagement would be “free of any honorarium” and it would be part of the duty the scientists have already committed to.
