The Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre, is a para-statal body mandated to promote science and technology among the public and to supplement school education through non formal science educational activities. RGSC is keen to raise public understanding of chemistry and trigger the interest of young people for the subject.

We regularly organise public outreach programmes during which we conduct science talks and science shows and the public is invited to visit thematic exhibition. This year we plan to focus our activities especially our science shows on Chemistry related themes.
