A Voluntary Organisation Devoted To Science Popularisation!
Science Centre (Gwl.) M.P. is a voluntary organisation devoted to science popularisation and people's science Movement, started work in 1987, but was formally established in 1988. In a short span, the centre organised a science popularisation movement in the most backward areas of Madhya Pradesh, and provided it a meaningful direction. The Science Centre has a well-knit composition consisting of thousands of children, teacher activists, scientists and villagers.
The Centre has established children's science councils for school children with a view to taking science to the people, including development of scientific thinking among children, promoting scientific activities, helping people to free themselves from the blind-faiths and traditions and arousing self confidence. The achievements of this organisation in the past have been significant. The various programmes undertaken reached lakhs of people directly through the medium of science rallies, science songs, science plays, science quizzes, seminars and surveys etc. The Science Centre has also organised a large number of training programmes for activists of other sister organisations in the country and helped hitherto small or infant organisations in neighbouring states to come up and grow.
