Speakers said science education becomes fun to learn when there is an urgency or necessity to inquire about its various aspects. We need to develop the inquiry based learning as it creates interest and curiosity among the students for science education. IBL will make the classroom science teaching interesting, students centered and effective. Moreover, it allows the students to be creative and a critical thinker. It will give a new shape of science teaching learning if it is well received by the teachers and students.
