Sunandan Divatia School of Science has been selected for organizing “Popular Science Lecture Series” by Indian Women Scientists’ Association (IWSA), supported by Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS), Dept of Atomic Energy. ISWA regularly conducts lectures in Chemistry and Biotechnology in different colleges of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai for students of post-graduate and graduate levels. The idea behind this lecture series is to motivate and inspire students about science and expose them to the excellent work being done by Indian scientists, especially by women scientists. Further, the program intends to generate interest in science among students and also for students to have interaction with scientists so that they can pursue a scientific career.
The event is scheduled on 19th Feb 2018 (Monday from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM) in which we will have eminent speakers from TIFR and IIT Bombay. The talks will be on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. The target participants are mostly science undergraduates, post-graduates and research scholars and faculties.
We are also pleased to announce the workshop on Nanochemistry on 19th Feb 2018 (Monday from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM). In the workshop, students will get an hands-on training on synthesis of nanoparticles and use spectroscopic techniques to characterize them. The target participants of the workshop are Final year B.Sc (Chemistry) students.
