Best Science Teacher Award for Dr Gaur

Mussoorie, December 7
Dr Uday Gaur, science teacher, Government Inter-college, Gorakhori, near Nainbagh in Tehri Garhwal has brought laurels to the state by winning the Best Science Teacher Award at an international science conclave held at Allahabad from November 26 to December 2. It was organised by the Bhartiya Soochna and Prodyogiki Sansthan.
Dr Gaur has been honoured for promoting and popularising science among students from nearby villages of Gorakhori, where he has been serving as a biology teacher for the past many years.
Dr Gaur, while talking to the Tribune, said he was feeling honoured by receiving the award from Nobel laureates, Dr Douglas (astro-physics) Dr Richardson (cold physics) Dr Michell (genetics) and Dr Safikis (computer science).
On the occasion, he also presented his papers on climate change in the region through a slide-show presentation, which was appreciated by renowned scientists from the globe. Dr Gaur said he was committed to promoting science among the students to sharpen their minds, remove superstitious beliefs and create scientific curiosity among them. He added that students from government schools were as sharp as those studying in public schools.
The school will also organise a function to honour Dr Gaur.
