Public Outreach Program
One of the important activities of Centre for Theoretical Physics is its Public Outreach Program. Though our primary concern is doing theoretical research in some of the fundamental issues of nature, we are mindful of the fact that science whether it is theoretical or experimental is done with public money.
The science outreach program has two primary goals:
- To organise public lectures which can reach a wide audience in all disciplines.
- To organise popular science activities for Jamia School children and undergraduate students.
