Surat Science Centre

June 17th, 2010 · 2 Comments

While in Surat, I took Abhishek and his cousin to the Surat Science Centre. It is so good that I couldn’t help thinking why every Indian city shouldn’t have one. There is a large area with science exhibits (good, but can do with more), a planetarium and a children’s play area. There is also a musuem with a bit of Surat history added on to it.

When I was in school, the Nehru Science Centre at Worli was a place I used to visit often. There was always something interesting going on there – the exhibits, special movies, quiz competitions. That definitely encouraged me to read and learn more about science and technology.

Every city needs a Science Centre — even in the age of the Internet, there is nothing to match the actual touch-and-feel that playing with different exhibits offers.

    In Tamil Nadu every district capital had one … this was way back in late 80’s and early 90’s … i know it still exists in my home-town. I believe it was a state effort … not central government’s.
