A Refresher Course in Experimental Physics will be held at Goa University, Goa from 10 to 25 May 2017 for the benefit of faculty involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Participants in this course will gain hands-on experience with about twenty five out of forty experiments, with a low cost kit developed for the Indian Academy of Sciences, and manufactured by Ajay Sensors and Instruments in Bangalore. These experiments are in (a) mechanics, (b) heat, (c) electricity both DC and AC, (d) magnetism, (e) relaxation, (f) phase sensitive detection technique, and (g) non-linear dynamics. This course is sponsored by Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi and National Academy of Sciences, India, Allahabad.
Refresher courses in Experimental Physics held so far have been highly successful and the experiments have been included in 80 institutions including universities, autonomous colleges, and advanced scientific institutions involved in education. Over 1800 participants have been trained so far and more than a hundred kits have been sold.
Applications are invited from teachers with experience in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Engineering and Physics. Motivated students of B.Sc. and M.Sc.
