Sopanika is an initiative of Shiksha Sopan members. It is a dream to do something best for students as well as teachers. Each and every alphabet of Sopanika tells about its aim. Sopanika stands for Science Oriented Programs And New Ideas for Kids Activities. In each of our product we says that “Its Logic, not Magic” because we want to create interest in doing experiments.

      The idea of education is not merely to impart instruction to the students in certain subjects but also and principally to bring them up or develop in them those habits and attitudes which may enable them to face the future well.
The quality of science teaching has to be raised considerably so as to achieve its proper objectives and purposes, namely, to promote an ever deepening understanding of basic principles, to develop problem-solving and analytical skills and the ability to apply them to the problems of the material environment and social living, and to promote the spirit of enquiry and experimentation.

To give children a real essence of Science, the idea of conducting an extended 6-week Science Training Programme was conceived in 2007 where children from all the schools could be collected for 2 hours in the afternoons and exposed to Science experiments with their most familiar commodities. The Children’s Science Training programme and Bal Vigyan Mela came out of this seed idea.
Then a science fair was organized at IIT Kanpur in which around 600 children from class 6th to class 8th were trained for science experiments demonstration for one month. Finally, a big fair was held on 14th November, 2007, in which around 5000 children from various schools of Kanpur visited to see the demonstration of science experiments by the trained children.
Science education depends critically on a meaningful laboratory. Unfortunately, most primary schools and a sizable fraction of 5.secondary schools do not have any laboratory at all. The survey conducted by us in nearby schools revealed that very few secondary schools had laboratories. Opportunity School was one of them. Opportunity School is situated inside the IIT Kanpur campus. This school was opened for the students residing in servant quarters of IIT Kanpur. We had established a Science Lab in Opportunity School, IIT Kanpur for the children studying in class 5th to 8th. This lab is for illustrating concepts in science and mathematics.
Shiksha Sopan in collaboration with NASI-Allahabad, organizes a workshop every year on physics teaching at school level to train school teachers to use innovative experiments and style in their teaching. Several experiments were designed and developed for the workshop by the Science Cell of Shiksha Sopan. We are managing NWUPT (National Workshop of Utsahi Physics Teachers) conducted by Department of Physics, IIT Kanpur under coordination of Dr H C Verma, professor, physics department, IIT Kanpur.
Champavat is town situated in Uttarakhand district and Kulethi is a small village situated in Champavat. National Science Day is celebrated in India on February 28 each year to mark the discovery of the Raman Effect by Indian physicist Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman on 28 February 1928. Our team members decided to inaugurate this Science Center on 28 February, 2008. We provide approximately 100 hand-on experiments to the science city and also trained the local teachers. This was done with the help of Prof. H. D. Bisht, a retired faculty from the Department of Physics, IIT Kanpur. The people were also trained there on how to demonstrate the science experiments in an interesting way.
The goal of making videos is to provide motivation, encouragement, a variety of models, and support for teachers who want to explore ways of changing how they teach science. Using these videos that take us into a broad range of classrooms, audiences are provided an opportunity to view how some teachers are approaching the teaching of science. Audiences are encouraged to reflect upon and discuss their own practices and changes they could make in their classrooms.
We had prepared a total of 20 such videos for Department of Science and Technology in a project “Development of the video CDs for the middle school students on Science & Mathematics” under Dr H C Verma, Professor, Physics department, IIT Kanpur. We had also prepared more than 20 science videos in an online course “Learning Physics through Simple Experiments” for Dr H C Verma.
