Day Time Astronomy
The sky fascinates everyone! Events in the sky which happen during day time give a special opportunity of taking people from “Wow to Why and How”.Wow is the experience. Why is the beginning of exploration? How is the learning?
The sun is an unparalleled resource for universalizing science. The sun, the earth and the moon are available in every school and human habitation.
It is easy to start to study Daytime Astronomy. DTA needs no special equipment. At no cost and low cost, simple tools can be constructed by children themselves to do non-trivial experiments. Every school can develop its own earth sun laboratory, which is a TERRASUN LAB.
The experiments that children can perform with the sun can begin early in primary school. They can escalate seamlessly and naturally into experiments for the higher classes.
The sun evidently can play an important role in fulfilling the quality mandate of the Right to Education Act 2009, ‘Quality Education for Every Child.’
This is Universalization of the Universe for Universalization of Quality Education.
