Hence here to spark interest in Science, every science aspect has been presented in visualized form and people can actually experience the working of science. With small experiments, they reveal many complicated concepts of science which are hard to grasp in theories. It imparts knowledge on various topics such as Jharkhand, the Minerals found there and the Rivers flowing through there, and many science fiction related articles. Students who are interested to get knowledge should visit this fabulous place. It is not an AC museum.
