Watt's Next? The Story of Energy

Solar power is a form of renewable energy that is derived from the sun's radiation. It has the potential to provide humanity with a virtually unlimited source of clean and sustainable energy, making it a critical component of the transition toward a low-carbon economy.


In this course, you will delve into the science and engineering behind solar power, learning about the different types of solar panels, how they work, and what challenges still need to be overcome to make solar energy a practical and affordable energy source.

The course consists of 06 modules and is offered in English. 

Each module would be of 10-12 minutes and classes can be completed anytime over the specified week.

Recommended Age Group: 10 years onwards​

Price of Course: Rs 2,000

Seeing The Unseeable

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into four modules:

  • "See" That Black Hole
    Even though black holes excite the imagination, the truth is that no astronomer has actually seen one. Before we actually "see" a black hole, let us figure out a way by which we can "see" a black hole.

  • See That Black Hole - 1
    Electromagnetic radiation is a form of energy that includes radio waves, microwaves, X-rays, and gamma rays, as well as visible light. Here we will discuss each of these radiations in detail.

  • See That Black Hole - 2
    The black holes in the Universe do not emit any detectable type of light or electromagnetic radiation. However, astronomers can still find them and learn a lot about them. Let us find out how.

  • Mission Readiness Test
    Check your understanding of black holes by taking an incredible quiz that covers topics such as electromagnetic waves, sound waves, the Doppler effect, and other related concepts.


Black Hole's Warped World

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into four modules:

  • Event Horizon Telescope
    The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) is a large telescope array consisting of a global network of radio telescopes. Learn how scientists actually manage to click a black hole.

  • Ain't Nothing Like Real Thing
    We cannot directly see black holes with any light we know how to detect. But we can see them indirectly, based on how they influence the matter around them. Want to know how? Join me.

  • Making a Black Hole
    This module will showcase the appearance of M87* which has a mass equivalent to 6.5 billion times that of our sun. The module will present a unique perspective on understanding black holes.

  • Space Station Work
    Black holes are regarded as the most enigmatic entities in the cosmos, with their internal workings still remaining a mystery to scientists. What is your understanding of black holes?


Eureka! First Photograph

This section would be covered in a week and is divided into four modules:

  • Getting First Photograph(s)
    Let us understand the image of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy and captured by the Event Horizon Telescope and what it means.

  • Mission Readiness Test
    You saw the iconic black hole image. How much do you know about it and the gravitational behemoth it depicts? Let us put your black hole knowledge to the test and find out.

  • Falling Into A Black Hole
    If you fell into a black hole, the theory suggests that gravity would stretch you out like spaghetti, before you reached the singularity. Is it actually so simple? Let us find out.

  • Help, Being Eaten By A Black Hole
    Ever wondered what black holes feasting on stars, planets, or you look like? Worry not, we have you covered. Join us as we discuss in detail the impacts of such cosmic capturing events.
