Science and engineering outreach, also called Education and Public Outreach or simply public outreach, is an umbrella term for a variety of activities by research institutes, universities, and institutions aimed at promoting public awareness (and understanding) of science and engineering and making informal contributions to the education. In JUIT we aimed to provide awareness to the schools in H.P. or nearby states for the same purpose.
School students and teachers are an important target group for science outreach. Outreach activities include visiting schools, giving talks at assemblies, discussions with students, or participation in events such as career fairs and science and technology camps.
Inviting groups of school students to our campus for lab visits and workshop. Lectures for various discipline will be delivered to those students. Another method of science outreach invites school teachers to participate in workshops where they are able to learn effective strategies to engage students in science. Such workshops will also be planned in near future.
Besides organizing independent events, we also support existing events that promote sciences awareness. JUIT faculty and staff regularly participate in International, National and state level science and engineering events for this purpose.
