Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education,TIFR
Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education (HBCSE) is a National Centre of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR), Mumbai. The broad goals of the Centre are to promote equity and excellence in science and mathematics education from primary school to undergraduate college level, and encourage the growth of scientific literacy in the country.
To these ends it carries out a wide spectrum of inter-related activities, which may be viewed under three broad categories:
- Research and Development
- Teacher Education and Science Popularisation
- Olympiads, NIUS and other
Students' Nurture Programmes.
Three decades after its inception, HBCSE has emerged as the premier institution in the country for research and development in science, technology and mathematics education. It is India's nodal centre for Olympiad programmes in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Astronomy.
HBCSE (TIFR) runs a Graduate School in Science Education. Students admitted to HBCSE Graduate School work towards the Ph.D. degree of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) which is a Deemed University.
The areas of work at HBCSE can be found in the Year-wise Annual Reports.
