The deeper you dig, the hotter it gets. Why so? This 2 minute animated story from Minute Earth tells you that.

Dear Teacher,

Khan Academy has launched a Talent Search for amazing explainers to help build the world’s most comprehensive, engaging library of videos.

To understand this, we will have to first know why astronauts/cosmonauts wear space suits. It is obvious that special space suits have been created because living in space is different than living on earth, or even flying in a aeroplane.

One tends to restrict teaching electromagnetic radiation only at a tabularly boring and a dour factual way. But, who says that facts can't be presented in an interesting way! Here's a poster from ICTS that talks about neutron stars and gamma rays that also briefly touches upon this year's Nobel Prize Physics winning idea that your senior school students would be keen more to know about.

Periods are something women and girls have been having for thousands of years – it’s the reason you and I are even here. And yet around the world, there’s still an element of shame associated with a woman’s monthly cycle.

Most students spend a big fraction of their study time preparing themselves for answering questions – for examinations. This becomes all the more important when a student writes a competitive examination such as the IIT entrance. In such a situation, the busy student tries to consult as many question banks from as many sources as possible, ensuring that (s)he has created his/her own database with (almost) all possible variations in questions from a certain theme!

People usually blow bubbles in the air using bubble pipes or plastic wands purchased from a store. That isn’t the only way to make bubbles. There are many things around your house that can be used to launch bubbles. But bubbles don’t have to float in the air; they can also be made in containers on table tops, or on top of all sorts of surfaces. All you need to have fun with bubbles is some dishwashing soap, lots of empty containers, and, perhaps most important, a sense of play. People often say that play may be fun but it is a waste of time.

When a white light passes through a prism, it gets dispersed into various colors according to its wavelengths. This phenomenon is easily seen in a rainbow or when you use a simple prism like a ruler in front of sunlight. The principle of dispersion of light is applied in spectroscopy to study many phenomenons and topics in Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and many other disciplines.  Spectroscopy is the study of the interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation (light).

Science is a process which demands observation, thinking, making hypothesis, designing and performing experimentation, collecting data and analyzing data, making inferences, replicating the tests, generalizing and exploring further. To understand this process and promoting scientific thinking and creativity among the learners I visited one of the school of Uttarkashi District.This is one of the government primary school of Uttarkashi located in the semi urban Gyansu which is connected to Uttarkashi town.
