The school is designed to encourage women to take up physics as a career. The sessions will be centered on some simple physics experiments, conducted by the students, or as demonstrations. The subsequent discussion will focus on theoretical aspects motivated by the experiments and explore physical ideas and theory in an open ended manner, so as to bring out the excitement and interconnectedness of the subject. This school will run in parallel with a school for women in mathematics. There will be some common lectures by invited speakers and we will encourage interaction between the participants in the two schools. Participants will be required to stay on the ICTS campus in order to maximally benefit from the school.
Eligibility criteria: The school is open to women studying only in Karnataka colleges for a bachelor’s degree with physics as a subject, and are entering their second or third year. This is a residential school and the selected participants will be fully supported. No registration fee.
