IISER – new initiatives in science education in India .:. NewKerala – India’s Top Online Newspaper:

One of the objectives of IISER – another IISER is in Pune – is to make education and career in basic sciences more attractive by providing opportunities in integrated learning of sciences and break the barriers of traditional disciplines. IISER will thus promote a flexible and borderless curriculum in all disciplines of basic sciences and promote excellence in science education like the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs).

If India is working to make science more interesting, maybe the reason so many American students don’t pursue science is because of the way it’s taught rather than lack of ability?
