51ah in Pictures

51ah/SCT is dedicated to the propagation of scientific temper and character building. Learning sessions are constructed on the tenets of critical pedagogy, where each participant presents their own own unique perspective, thereby affording the group the benefit of multiple points of view and techniques. 51ah does not focus on memorizing or knowing things. The focus is rather on 'Why?, How? & What if?' and using this new found understanding to serve others. (Note: Check our raison d'être at the top of the page.) Participants work on projects such as Earth Overshoot Day, National Science Day, Permaculture training etc which helps them learn time management, contact management, spoken English, public speaking, interview training, meeting etiquette, organic farming, climate action etc. The learning sessions are both Online and Offline. 51ah offers Internet Reimbursement, Stipends & Speaking assignments (see FAQ 1, 2, 3). 51ah offers Permaculture Certification, Volunteer programs and Group visits (see FAQ 7, 8, 9)

  3. 51ah background In 2013 a group of IIT Madras students set up a club to promote scientific temper. A professor close to this group suggested the name Club 51AH after article 51AH of the Indian constitution that requires every citizen to develop scientific temper. 51AH comes to life once again to give common people a platform to express their views and interact with mutual respect and use scientific temper while addressing day to day problems
