A Refresher Course in Experimental Physics will be held at the Department of Physics, Panjab University, Chandigarh from 11 to 26 February 2014 for the benefit of faculty involved in teaching undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The Course aims to familiarize the teachers with a set of new experiments developed as a low cost kit by the Indian Academy of Sciences to cater to the BSc and MSc levels. All the experiments verify physical laws and principles and yield reasonably accurate results. The Refresher Course is jointly sponsored by the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore; Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi; The National Academy of Sciences India, Allahabad.

Professor R. Srinivasan, a distinguished physicist, who has designed these experiments for the benefit of physics teachers and students in Indian Universities will be the Course Director. The Course comprising lectures, discussions and laboratory sessions will help participants hone their skills in experimental physics and enable them to introduce the experiments in their respective curricula.
