  • 10 Workshops in 3 ongoing series
  • Theoretical Physics series : series 3 : Electrodynamics.

There were 6 bimonthly workshops in this series, from April 2016 to February 2017.

  • Experimental Physics series : (1) General Physics Experiments -I

                                             (2) Electronics Experiments - II

There were 12 experiments included in the General Physics experiments workshop. The theory was discussed in detail and hands-on sessions were conducted for all experiments.

The workshop on Electronic experiments was a repetition of the first such workshop conducted in Nov. 2015, but the theoretical aspects were discussed in more detail and there was sufficient time for hands-on training.

  • Astronomical Data Analysis series : workshop 1 : Virtual Observatory

                                                            workshop 2 : X-Ray Astronomy

            The aim is to train the teachers in planning and executing MSc level projects in this field. Some

             of these projects may be extended to PhD level work for the students as well as the teachers.
