Onion and Cheek Cells

The cell is possibly the most important concept in biology since it is the basic unit of life. Every living organism is made up of cells (or just one in the case of bacteria). All the animals, trees and plants are made up of cells that share many similar characteristics.   An onion is a multicellular (consisting of many cells) plant organism.As in all plant cells, the cell of an onion peel consists of a cell wall, cell membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus and a large vacuole. The presence of a cell wall and a large vacuole are indicators that help identify…

Vernier Calipers

The modern Vernier caliper was invented by Joseph R. Brown in 1851. It was the first practical tool for exact measurements that could be sold at an affordable price to ordinary machinists. The Vernier Caliper consists of a main scale fitted with a jaw at one end. Another jaw, containing the vernier scale, moves over the main scale. When the two jaws are in contact, the zero of the main scale and the zero of the Vernier scale should coincide. If both the zeros do not coincide, there will be a positive or negative zero error.   This video explains…

Determination of Concentration of KMnO4 Solution using Ferrous Ammonium Sulphate

Titration is a common laboratory method of qualitative chemical analysis that can be used to determine the unknown concentration of a solution (analyte). The basis of this process is the reaction between the analyte and a solution of unknown concentration (standard solution). The titration based on oxidation and reduction reaction between the titrant and analyte is called Redox titration. Oxidation is the process of the addition of oxygen or removal of hydrogen/electron and reduction involves the process of addition of hydrogen/electrons or removal of oxygen. In redox systems, the titration method can be adopted to determine the strength of a…

Spherometer

Sphero Meters are small precision instruments for measuring the radius of curvature of spherical surfaces. They can also be used to measure the thickness of a thin plate. A spherometer works on the principle of the micrometer screw. Spherometer consists of a metallic tripod framework supported on three fixed legs of equal lengths. A screw passes through the centre of the tripod frame, parallel to the three legs. A large circular disc graduated with 100 equal parts is attached to the top of the screw. A small vertical scale known as the Pitch scale (P) with the scale reading divided…

Atal Tinkering Lab

Atal Tinkering Lab ATL is an approach of Central government of India to create an environment of scientific temperament, innovation, creativity amongst Indian Students. It is a step towards a new India. Since the last few decades, our education system has seen a paradigm shift. Today, with this approach of inculcating Hands on Methodology in the current education scenario we have resolved the need of the hour. ATL lab would teach students essential 21st-century skills which will help them in developing their professional and personal skills. Skilled India is the need of the hour and each step taken this dream…

ATL Teacher Training Workshop

NITI Aayog and Atal Innovation Mission are committed to help and support the ATLs to reach their potential and enable them to guide the students to become innovators & solution providers. Towards this objective, a set of training workshops are being organized for teachers from all schools with ATLs with support from Intel & IBM. The objective is to orient the teachers and provide them with the know-how to become enablers for the entire process and journey of tinkering in schools. This is a 5 day teacher training workshop and every school has to nominate 2 teachers from their school…

NITI Aayog to launch ‘Mentor India Campaign’

NEW DELHI: In an attempt to catch young talent, NITI Aayog- country’s premier think tank, is launching the ‘Mentor India Campaign’, a strategic nation building initiative to engage leaders who can guide and mentor students at more than 900 Atal Tinkering Labs, established across the country as a part of the Atal Innovation Mission. The nationwide campaign will be unveiled by the Chief Executive Officer of the NITI Aayog, Amitabh on Wednesday, according to the statement issued by the NITI Aayog. “Mentor India is aimed at maximizing the impact of Atal Tinkering Labs, possibly the biggest disruption in formal education…

Raspberry Pi For Beginners: LED Connections, Bread-boards, and Programming

After seeing a couple of posts on Reddit asking for the proper way to connect LEDs to a microcontroller/microcomputer via GPIO, I decided to make this video.   This should guide you through how a breadboard is setup, how connections work for the Raspberry Pi, how LEDs work (generally), and how to create and execute a small bit of code to tie all of this together.
