IISER TVM conducts a range of outreach activities on campus and in nearby schools to nurture scientific thinking and research skills among children at the various levels.

The program

We conduct a half-day program for visitors at the IISER TVM campus with IISER scientists, and technical assistants. The program consists of an introductory lecture by a faculty member followed by a tour to various disciplines of the institute. The tour includes a visit to the central instrumentation facility (CIF) along with the demonstration of sophisticated instruments (see the list of CIF instruments) followed by a visit to research laboratories. If the visiting students have only mathematics background, then a half-day "Walk With Ph.D Scholar" program is organized.
