National Science Week 2019

SAIP  National Science Week 2019 – “Physics and Climate Change”

The Department of Science and Technology (DST) annually leads the National Science Week (NSW) - a celebration of the role of science in people’s daily lives. This mass-participation event is one of the many initiatives undertaken to implement the Science Engagement Strategy (2015) of the DST, which seeks to develop a society that is knowledgeable about science, able to form independent opinions about science issues and scientifically literate. The NSW 2019  theme is  “Facing the harsh realities of Climate Change”.

In line with this year’s theme, the SAIP will run events under the banner ‘Physics and Climate Change’.

The SAIP will present some resources on how physics research is helping us understand climate change and how physics is also helping us mitigate the effects of climate change, hence improving our quality of life and saving the planet!
