The Science Centre

The Science Centre covers 5 acres (20,000 m2) of land, provided by the Government of Goa. It includes a park with exotic flowers, where visitors can learn and interact with large exhibits of principles of physics.[1] Most require visitors to participate actively, e.g. requiring people to lift themselves using pulleys and ropes. Activities are tailored to children, so they enjoy exploring, experiencing and learning about science.[2]

The centre also houses interactive exhibits inside the building and presents Science Shows for young children daily. The Digital Planetarium,[3] 3-D Film Shows,[4] Science Demonstration Lectures, Science Film Shows, Taramandal Shows and the Cyberlab Shows are suitable for all ages.

The Science Centre has an air-conditioned auditorium seating 140, where the Science Film Shows and other multimedia presentations are shown. The Cyberlab is a Multimedia Computer Lab designed to demonstrate and spread IT awareness to the public. There are two thematic galleries: Fun Science and Science of Oceans.[5]
