As the principal of your school you have a good opportunity to expose your students into the virtual world of science. There are no registration or usage fees for the Science India portal. Please note the below points for registration:
We are happy that students are benefitting from the portal and you wish to spread the news of this novel initiative! In the downloads and links page we have a facility to send ‘e-invitation’. Here all you need to have is the name of the principal and the address of the school you wish to invite to register in the portal. You will have to manually type the above two information and submit. On doing this the system generates an e-invitation letter in a PDF format. This can either be color printed or e-mailed to the principal of the concerned school.
For the time being sign up / registration is open only for schools. Students of class 6th to 12th will have to approach their respective school principals or class teachers to register the school. Once the school is registered then the principal or the concerned teacher can register the students manually through an inbuilt mechanism. This is to ensure that students get the proper guidance in the initial stage. (To know how the school needs to be registered read: Iam the principal of a school. How can i register my school students?)
There is no need to worry. Your username and password can be retrieved by your teacher from the control page of your school’s home page. Just inform your teacher and please do write down your username and password somewhere so that you do not repeatedly disturb your teacher for the username and password.
www.scienceindia.in is presently aiming at school students only. However, students from college can contribute through volunteering in a very dynamic way. You can fill and submit the volunteer registration form available in the downloads and links part.
