Abhijit Bardhan

National Children's' Science Congress
Abhijit Bardhan is using his established networks to launch a grassroots movement to train teachers to change the way science is taught in government-run schools. He began by creating a competitive program to reward innovative scientific experiments in secondary schools. It culminated in the National Children's Science Congress. In getting the program established nationally, Abhijit realized that only a fraction of secondary school children were participating, which caused him to launch a new effort to bring innovative science education to all students in a new way: through their teachers.
