CSIR - Jigyasa Virtual Lab

Jigyasa Virtual Lab

CSIR-NML Jigyasa

The project aims to encourage students to learn science effortlessly with fun and enthusiasm by creating innovative learning tools and contents through Jigyasa and Virtual Laboratory (VL) utilizing advanced digital technology focusing on the areas of minerals, metals, materials and metallurgy.

The objectives of the project are following
  • To develop innovative scientific content on a virtual platform focusing on R&D activities of CSIR-NML
  • To develop a digital platform for interaction between the science teachers, students and scientists
  • To prepare content in an innovative and non-traditional way (game, simulation, video, animation, etc.) which will make science interesting and more understandable
  • To popularize CSIR-VL through various publicity modes (print, digital, social media, etc)
  • To obtain feedback from students and faculty members for improving the CSIR-VL
  • To encourage students to make innovative tools/devices based on science-based concepts
  • To encourage girl students to take up science for future career options through the VL interface
