B M Birla Science Projects

The Science Projects Division has helped to establish several Science Centres over the years, developing critically acclaimed expertise in the production of exciting scientific exhibits. This is the result of years of in-house R & D and international collaboration.

The proven package of exhibits developed by the B M Birla Science Centre is ideally suited and in fact is a must for any community for the development of a competent scientific citizenry so essential for the survival and betterment of the thrid world, where on the one hand in developing countries by and large science education has been ineffective as evidenced by the absence of technical innovations and breakthroughs and by dismally low numbers of scientific papers or citations, on the other hand the general level of scientific awareness is poor.

The above package will at one level demystify science and at another enthuse visitors about the wonders and powers of science and technology. The visitor can roll up his sleeves and discover the fun and magic of science.

The philosophy behind this unique package developed by B M Birla Science Centre can summed up in the words of Nobel Laureate Lord George Porter who delivered the B M Birla Memorial Lecture at the Centre recently: “most of us born scientists, endowed with inquisitiveness and a strong desire to explore, to question, to discover. But many, perhaps most of us, lose our early enthusiasm for science when it becomes a formal project, difficult and half understood… today we all live in a world of science and to be ignorant for this is, going through life without use of our senses…
