Science Communicator Forum (SCF) is formed by a group of volunteers, primarily teachers, professors of West Bengal. The objective of the forum is to inculcate, nurture scientific thinking among students. The initiative started more that 25 years ago with noble effort of few individual and now spread across all the districts in West Bengal. After the initial interaction, I could recollect the memory of Science Exhibitions they organized in my school (Hare School). I was part of the Anti-superstition Demonstration Show and it was lot of fun.
Recently pilot implementation of Activity Based Learning (ABL) lab is completed in a few selected schools in Kolkata and other districts of West Bengal. During next phase these schools will spread scientific thinking in a cluster of schools around them. Apart from that they are also associated with many other initiatives like National Children Science Congress etc.
I have explained the mission of Future Society and gave a demonstration of the technology solution. I also tried to make the intent of Future Society very clear. The feedbacks I have received are
  • We can help the forum to develop set of video recording. These recoding can be shared will all the hub and cluster schools for ABL. They agreed on that.
  • SCF has created a few good quality video exhibits of the ABL experiments; Because of the effort required they would require some more time to creat video for all the experiments. However they can use this technology during the teachers' workshop and create some of the recording on the go
  • They would like to share this idea with more member and like to know their views
  • However they felt this is a noble initiative and some of the teacher of this forum might help in this initiative. We are expecting another meeting with the bigger team soon.
  • The forum has also invited us to visit them during National Children Science Congress review session from 23-25 Dec.
