The B T Course Diary

The New Basic Technology Course has started from this June [2009]. This page will get regular updates of the happenings in this course [that is the intention!!]. To start with, we would like to give an idea through photo essays,  the kind of hands-on work that students do. Slowly we will try to evolve small tutorials on how to do some of the things that they do in this course
