One Day Seminar on National Science Day
National Science Day (NSD) is being celebrated on February 28 from 1987. On this day in 1928, Sir C.V. Raman discovered scattering of light later named after him as “Raman Effect”. He received Nobel Prize in physics for this discovery in 1930. It is being celebrated to bring science in the forefront to inculcate scientific temper from scientific achievements of the country. The activities include debates, quizzes, exhibitions, lectures, etc. involving schools, colleges and general public. The Research Institutions/ Laboratories organize the “Open House Day/ Week” for creating awareness among public.

In this regard, RGUKT Basar proposes to conduct one day seminar by inviting eminent personalities from physics and chemistry fields. In addition, we are organizing quizzes from maths, physics and chemistry disciplines. Prizes will be given to the winners on NSD.
