Jyotsna Vijapurkar

An astronomer by training, I now work in science education. I am currently developing an integrated Middle School inquiry science curriculum. I teach classes myself, and investigate which concepts can be taught, and how, at any given level. I develop low cost easily doable activities in science that teachers and students in even resource poor environments can use.

 

Research Interests (in Science Education) :

  • Curriculum development

  • Classroom practices

  • Students' alternative concepts and their causes

  • Outcomes of inquiry based teaching
