Homi Jehangir Bhabha: Remembering a Scientist and Celebrating His Contributions to Science, Technology, and Education in India
Vaidya, Sheila
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v5 n2 p507-519 Jun 2010
The focus of this paper is on the current developments in science education occurring in the posthumously built Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education in Mumbai and to offer context for various indigenous developments that are shaping science education in India today. In this paper, I describe the story of Homi Bhabha and his rich legacy of India's atomic energy program. Specifically, I focus on the institutions built by Homi Bhabha, including the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and I examine how these institutions have enabled Indian scientists to contribute to the advancement of science knowledge in the world.
