The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) launched first series of Lesson Plans under “Learning Science via Standards”. Under this latest initiative, “Learning Science via Standards”, Bureau of Indian Standards is preparing a series of lesson plans focused on demonstrating use of scientific concepts, principles and laws to help students understand their practical applications in manufacturing, functioning and testing of quality characteristics of different products as stated in the relevant Indian Standards.  The subjects for the lesson plans are largely related to products used in day-to-day life and have been chosen based on their relevance to education as part of the course curriculum as well as to industrial applications. BIS officials and resource personnel will transact the lesson plans to the students as part of the activities under Standards Clubs formed by BIS in various schools and colleges for an interactive learning experience.    

Learning science via standards will help young learners develop a scientific temperament at an early stage. Lesson Plans cover a range of subjects, including Caustic Soda, Cement, Football, Gas Stove, Geyser, Helmet, LED Bulbs, LPG Cylinders, Paint, and Pulverized Fuel Ash Cement Bricks. Talking about this unique initiative, Director-General, BIS, Shri Pramod Kumar Tiwari, IAS, said, “The Learning Science via Standards initiative is a step towards bridging the gap between theory and real-life use of science education. It will enable students to relate the concepts of science to their actual applications and also promote a culture of quality and standardization in the country.

The first compilation of 10 Lesson Plans under the BIS initiative was unveiled on the occasion of World Consumer Rights Day.
