Tucked away in Bhubaneswar, the Regional Science Centre is a hidden gem that makes science come alive. Since 1989, this attraction has allowed visitors to explore interactive scientific exhibits across 8 acres of land. It’s a fascinating place, especially if you have kids in tow!
As you enter the campus, vibrant life-size models of dinosaurs welcome you. The centre houses over 500 exhibits displayed in well-lit galleries that trace the evolution of pivotal scientific discoveries. My favourite section showcases indigenous innovations ranging from ancient irrigation techniques to visionary inventions that shaped human progress.
What makes the science centre truly special are the regular events held for public engagement. I still fondly remember attending a brilliant lecture on World Population Day highlighting the impact of growth rates on sustainability. It left the audience pondering on whether the rising population is our Achilles heel or a catalyst for change. The session concluded with a lively quiz competition and an even livelier debate between enthusiasts.
So if you want to imbibe some science this weekend in a fun atmosphere, head to the Regional Science Centre Bhubaneswar. With interactive displays, workshops, star-gazing camps and even handicraft bazaars, it makes for an illuminating experience regardless of age. Tickets are reasonably priced at INR 60 and 40 for adults and children respectively. Give them a call at 0674-2567986 to find out this month’s event calendar. Trust me, you’ll come back dazzled!
