About 51ah

  1. What is 51ah? Article 51A(h) of the Indian Constitution says that it shall be the duty of every citizen 'to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform'
  2. 51ah Trust is a registered volunteer run education and training service to develop public speaking, spoken english, intern / job opportunities, personality development, entrepreneurship, self sustaining organic farming and eco services. Training is based on scientific and humanist principles.
  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
  4. Who can join 51ah Everyone is welcome! All ages, All locations - Welcome! We wish to reflect the diversity and vibrancy of India and the wider world
  5. Why join 51ah? - Improve English, confidence, public speaking, take up an internship / job, make new friends develop a professional network, Tackle misinformation and stereotypes, Teach / volunteer at 51ah - Be the change you wish to see
  6. Do’s and dont's - Being kind is more important than being right. Participants on shows can post freely on 51ah WA channels (English, Kannada, Hindi) and tag 51ah FB and Insta. It’s ok to question / discuss / debate / share ideas but never make it personal, Mutual respect is key! Camera-ON is mandatory in 51ah classrooms and meetings. No Camera & No Full attention = No Entry / Eject
  7. Critical Pedagogy principles are adopted at 51ah. The classroom sessions are about sharing ideas and thoughts, a supportive and collaborative atmosphere where teachers and students all participate equally
