National Science Day

Date: Feb 28th 2018@RGUKT Basar

Theme for the celebration of the National Science Day-2018
"Scientific issues for the development of the Nation"

One Day Seminar on National Science Day
Every year since 1987, National Science Day is celebrated on February 28. On this day in 1928, Sir C.V. Raman discovered the famous “Raman Effect”, about scattering of light. He was awarded Nobel Prize in physics for this discovery in 1930. Main objective is to bring science in the forefront through celebration of the national science day (NSD), inculcate scientific temper and take pride in the scientific achievements of the country. The programmes relating to the “National Science Day” range from a day, to month or even longer, either beginning or culminating on February 28.

In this regard, RGUKT Basar conducts a one day National Seminar by inviting eminent personalities from physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology arenas. In addition to it, we are organizing quizzes from maths, biology, physics and chemistry disciplines. Prizes will be given to the winners.
