The Unique Humankind Gallery is a major exposition revealing why or how human being is unique among the various life forms on earth. It contains 42 exciting and mostly interactive exhibits. The gallery also presents human biological features like reproduction, growth and development, blood circulation, skeletal and muscular system etc.
The interactive exhibits of the Fun Science gallery invite to enjoy science through fun and merriment. These hands on, mind on, easy to use exhibits make the visitor explore the why and how in science. The Children’s Section throws open a large variety of puzzles and science kits to be handled by the tiny tots for kindling their imagination and activating their thought process. This helps them to be creative and sharp.
The inflatable dome planetarium of this centre takes one deep into space to enrich their knowledge about different celestial bodies. Beyond the four walls of the science centre, lies green Science Park where young children come with a motive of playing. They play with specially designed exhibits in the natural surroundings, try out various options and explore. The science that they learn in the process is a bonus to them.
