Physics

Mr. Satyajit Jagtap

M.Sc. ,B.Ed.

Head of Department

Our department aims to ensure that our students have a strong conceptual base in physics as it is an essential subject if one wishes to take up engineering, medicine or the pure sciences. We enhance our classroom teaching with lab activities to bridge the gap between abstract concepts/ theory and practical application. The classroom and lab learning complement each other. Students learn data analysing and use logical thinking to solve numerical problems in the class room whereas practical approaches, recording observations and drawing conclusions are skills taught in the lab. Guest lectures, quiz competitions / lecture competitions, demonstration of physics behind daily phenomenon for easy comprehension and practical application of various laws including model making are some of our efficient teaching methods. We also conduct visits to institutions like IUCCA, GMRT, Planetarium for observational learning. We develop logical thinking abilities, practical skills and instil a scientific approach in our students along with time management skills.

Counsellor

We aim to provide integrated and excellent counselling services for all students in our institutes. The success of an individual in life depends solely on the proper utilization of his/ her capacity within the limitations imposed by the society. However, it is not easy to practice what one preaches. There is no doubt that one’s goal should be to succeed, but this should be achieved without harming the interests of the others. Developing such an attitude requires a tedious mental process that needs dedicated and continuous attention. With competition entering into every field both, parents and the students feel the pressure. It becomes important then to ensure that the students make the optimum use of the opportunities by using the best of their abilities, which can enable them to know more about their own competencies and develop their overall personality.
