Title: Micro-scale chemistry for student laboratories in India
Panchapakesan, and N.K.
Completion Date: 2007 - project completed
Micro-scale approach has been widely accepted on ground of economy,
safety, saving of time, ease of experimentation and so on. Unfortunately
its acceptance for student laboratories in the developing world is not
as widespread as it should be. This project aims at consolidating the
beginning made in India for micro-scale kit design and for teacher training.
The well-known micro-scale expert from Sweden, Christer Gruvberg, conducted
eight demo Workshops in March-April, 2004 for a hands-on demonstration
of the efficacy of the micro-scale approach for school laboratories.
This led to the formulation of a strategy for training teacher and also
to the design of a local kit being marketed by a local entrepreneur.
This project will consolidate and expand the scope of the ongoing work
through partnership with Industry for large-scale kit production and
for design of a 'home-kit', and partnership -- under CCE auspices --
with international experts for designing a micro-scale program for South
