My Experience from NSTC

It was a great experience for me to be the part of NSTC program. This program provided me opportunity to think scientifically and to derive conclusion logically from the observations and plan experiment to build innovative ideas, at the same time I got exposure to the hands-on presentation/demonstration to enlighten on new teaching methodology/pedagogy for 21 century generation. Educators and scientists provided us unforgettable learning experience through different lectures and demonstrations. More than 15000 participants came from different parts of the country and the program was organized very systematically that no one has faced any kind of problem. Lunch and Dinner was provided at the venue of the program. In the whole program one interesting thing I noticed was that even single plastic material was not used to serve tea, water and different types of food items to more than 15000 people.

Lastly I am thankful from the core of heart to VKVAPT for providing this golden opportunity to be a part of such a wonderful program. Whatever I have learned from the NSTC will definitely help me to deal with my students and subject in a better way.
