National Science Day

February 28, March 01 GMRT, Khodad

February 28th is celebrated throughout India as National Science Day, and marks the discovery of the Raman Effect by C. V. Raman for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. NCRA celebrates Science Day by organising one of the biggest science festivals in the country on Feb 28th and 29th at the GMRT campus in Khodad. This festival sees about 20,000 people visiting us every year, a majority of whom are students and their family from rural and semi-urban talukas and districts in Junnar and nearby areas in Western Maharashtra.

More then 600 science projects are demonstrated by school and college students. National and State science institutes and universities too show off their latest research. There are public talks, science movie screenings, night sky observing, live demonstrations, and many more.

For more information, take a look at the Science Day website, and visit us next year with your family and friends!
