Abstract
The conventional pedagogical techniques in Indian schools are predominantly limited to coursework and involve just necessary laboratory work. It lacks in inculcating the aptitude for practical applications relevant to the coursework amongst the students. This results in a major setback for the students as their mental approach remains constrained to books, where on the contrary, the future depends only on technologies and applications. Considering this, under Optics Outreach Education Program 2014, University of Delhi at Acharya Narendra Dev College SPIE Student Chapter conducted workshops in 22 schools of Delhi including various Government schools as well. The workshop zeroed into the concepts of optics and various innovative techniques developed by our Student chapter members to embark a new method of teaching.
