Nano-technology to steer CBSE students

Abstract:
While the Rs 1-lakh Nano car of Tatas' has taken the country by storm, it will be nano-technology that promises to spur students of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). From April 1, nano-technology will be introduced as an optional subject for Class XI and Class XII students. There are around 12 lakh students under CBSE.

"A core committee has been set up to draft the syllabus. The committee is talking to the experts in the field, even from outside India. The committee will be meeting in Dubai very soon and syllabus will be finalised by February 28. After that, it will take six to seven months to form textual material," CBSE chairman Ashok Ganguly told The Indian Express on Sunday. He was in Pune to attend the 36th conference of chairpersons, secretaries and officers of various State Boards of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education. He is also president of the conference.
