Digital Kids' Zone 2021

Learn from home

This pandemic has disrupted school education and practical learning immensely. We, students of IISc Bengaluru, will bring science to your home on a digital platform on 5th September 2021

A day full of science demonstrations using household things, followed by live interaction with the demonstrators. 

Keynote Talks:

          Dr. Anil Sahasrabudhe (Chairman, AICTE)

          Prof. H. C. Verma (Ex-Professor of Physics, IIT Kanpur)

Live event:

  • The event starts at 9:30 AM on 5th September 2021 (Sunday)
  •  Please like, share, and subscribe. Kindly set your reminder
  • Reach out to our YouTube channel if there is an issue with live streaming:

Some key points for the event:
