Indian IPY Outreach Activities
  • General public
  • Students - in general
As the IPY concludes successfully, India has contributed strongly to its outreach program. The project - Indian IPY Outreach Activities – was a national outreach programme under the auspices of IPY with National Centre for Antarctic & Ocean Research (NCAOR, under the Ministry of Earth Sciences) at Goa as the national coordinating agency. It embraced various activities such as exhibitions, competitions, publications, lectures, student-participations and so on in collaboration with different organizations. The legacy of IPY would be preserved & the momentum built during the IPY would be sustained. The outreach activities started during this period such as participation in exhibitions etc. would be continued to keep the Polar Science in public consciousness. Furthermore, NCAOR has a well-defined student anticipation programme that is widely advertised in schools/colleges that not only spread awareness about polar science but also prepare future polar researchers i.e. fulfil the aim of capacity-building.
