Mobile Science Exhibition
Mobile exhibitions and demos for the rural schools)
Mobile Science Exhibitions (MSE) are basically science exhibitions on buses based on various themes of science and technology. Mobile Science Exhibition is an attempt of NCSM to communicate science in rural areas. These buses target the population which is unable to visit any of the science centre of NCSM. First MSE was launched by Birla Industrial and Technological Museum (BITM), Kolkata which is a centre under NCSM in the year 1965. Since then MSE have been proved as an important tool in communicating science in rural areas. At present 23 MSE buses of different centres of NCSM spread across India, go around the nearby rural areas and communicate science.
Every year we chalk out a plan and chart a path for our current MSE unit themed on Popular Science. We are also developing a new MSE on Mathematics for which we discussed with the mathematics teachers to know which conceptual things they find most difficult to be taught and accordingly we are trying to address those issues.
For booking of the MSE programme at your institution you may cointact the Senior Education Officer, Regional Science Centre and Planetarium, Calicut.
