Nature should be understood wholly, in a comprehensive manner. In this regard Oceans, which covers about 71% of the Earth's surface, plays a major role as a regulator to climate, besides being the storehouse of minerals, food, energy and other commercial activities. It is now well understood that the training to respect the environment and ocean must start at the school level. Accordingly, the Dona Paula based CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography organized a 4 day Enrichment course for 30 science teachers under the scheme Faculty Training and Motivation Program. Showing interest in public education, the activity during the training days covered lectures on specific areas, tours to research vessel Sindhu Sankalp, educational displays, several hands-on activities and group discussion and presentation on sensitive aspects combining nature, ocean and human. Teachers were asked to explore spending the summer participating in one of the ongoing research projects of NIO, and also encouraged to plan for their student's visit to NIO. Dr. Maria Brenda Mascarenhas coordinated the entire program on behalf of Human Resource Management section of NIO. (PHOTO: Participants with Dr. SWA Naqvi, Director-NIO with other NIO officials).
