Nehru Science Center
Nehru Science Centre exhibits actively involve the visitor in discovering information through participation in the demonstration process. A huge sprawling four storeyed building houses the nine galleries. The hexagonal gallery, Science for Children, has an assortment of exhibits where children play with soap bubbles, primary colours, geometrical shapes and forms, tricky, puzzles, all of which make science learning a tun thing.
Sound and Hearing and Light and Sight are specialized galleries and clarify how sound is formed and heard, what resonance is, interference, echo, musical notes, the properties of Ught and colour, use of lenses, complexity of the human eye. A small gallery deals with life sciences and the evolution of man. Here a transparent woman, a mannequin, explains to visitors about the human anatomy.
Discovery and computers are highly popular. The science park gives visitors a chance to experiment with exhibits, press levers, turn wheels, roll balls, pull strings and look through periscopes and telescopes. S.ciimce at the Centre is not a dry, theoretical subject. Instead, through inspection, involvement and other related behavior scientific awareness and formulae is inculcated in children.
