Popularization of Science


The Council has identified Popularization of Science as one of its key areas with the purpose of infusing scientific attitude in the public mind, through means of display, publications, programmes etc. The fundamental objective is to signify the usable aspects of science & technology and to make the young and adults feel aroused to seek scientific basis behind every human activity.
Major objectives are:


Propagation of fundamentals of Science & technology among the masses


To dissolve the barriers between school, home and community and accelerate the diffusion of the message of science to all


Creation of awareness in the individual as well as the community about the impact of Science & Technology


Creation of a feeling in children that science is fun


Involving teachers, students, NGOs in S&T training programmes/ activities to spread the message of science.
