RAMAN SCIENCE CENTRE, NAGPUR
It is an exciting world on the bank of Gandhi Sagar. Here
Science is no more a subject but an experience. Here science is a thing
to play with & learn. Here one is free to spend a whole day in play
with hands-on exhibits-press lever, turn wheels, roll balls, pull
strings, press the buttons, look through the peepholes to make science
work & enjoy. One can discover that, here concept of science is
different: It is sheer fun.
Science Centre is open on all days except Holy & Diwali.
Timings: 09.30 AM to 06.00 PM
Planetarium: Daily 4 shows
3-D Shows : Daily 4 Shows
Science and Sphere Shows
These shows are specially arranged for organised school group having more than 100 students.
Information & Communication Technology:
This gallery will take you to the wonderful journey of
Information and Communication Technology starting from cave paintings to
the modern world of Internet. As you walk through the gallery you will
come across the exhibits like Digital Corridor, Virtual Reality, Global
Positioning System etc. This Gallery uses various intelligent systems
such as mobile handsets, computers, internet, communication satellites,
optical fibers, laser gadgets and other image processing gadgets such as
a Computer Tomography machine etc. as a mode of edutainment. This
Gallery is a just a glimpse of how information communication
technologies have shrunk our world to a global village. (Photo)
the history, people have imagined and then created new things to make
their lives better, easier, and more enjoyable. From the wheel to
penicillin to computer, inventions continue to change the way we live.
Inventions changed the world. These are need driven and some times
accidental. They create a domino effect spawning other essential
inventions in their wake.
The gallery on Invention is an effort to
bring these inventions live & understandable to common man in
general & students in particular. The exhibition on invention having
a wide range of exhibits explaining the fundamental scientific
principles involved in inventing in a vivid and easily understandable
manner using presentation techniques like interactive exhibits &
The exhibition comprises of exhibits on various
aspects of fundamental science like what is a matter made of? How radio
works? How steam engine works? How sound is recorded? Etc.(Photo)
exhibition that provides hands on experience for exploring the
scientific principles. Some of the attractive exhibits are Floor piano,
Virtual Book, Visible effect of Invisible, Coriolis Force, Is It a Drop
or Flow of water, Plasma Globe, Giant Soap Bubble, Spiral Musical Tubes,
Reading in Dot Matrix Way, Mirror Maze, Dropping coins, Diamond is for
ever, Positive shadow, See Your Back, Resonance etc. (Photo)
large Science Park, sprawling over 6 acres of lush green beautiful
landscape provides the visitors with an opportunity to relax in
colourful surroundings, away from the hustle & bustle of the city
life and allows the children to play with an array of outdoor exhibits
on physical science. Pet animal cages, aviaries and Medicinal Plant
Garden also enrich the environment. It is a lifetime experience of

Pre-historic Animal Park
is a 3 dimensional multimedia exposition that enthralls the visitors by
taking back to pre-historic era in which different species of animals
lived in the sea as well as on the land about 500 to 10,000 million
years ago. During day time it is open for students but in the evening a
light & sound show is also organized. It is built over an area of 2
acres and first of its kind in the central India. (Photo)
3-D Science Show -
this unique facility one can experience viewing of 3-D films using a
stereo projection system and specially aligned polarized spectacles. The
fang of snake coiling out from the hat of the magician on the screen
will almost tickle your nose or a fleet of rats leaping from the screen
onto your lap will make you jump off the chair. Whatever be the scene on
the screen you are sure to get excited.
The Science of astronomy emerged
as a result of intense study of sky by man kind. With the progress of
civilization newer and better than ever instruments were developed for
astronomical observations which intensified star gazing and widened human
knowledge on celestial bodies.
Currently Showing : From Earth to
Universe : A 35 minutes show projecting dynamic story night sky, zodiac
constellation, perceptions about Universe, Moon, Earth, Jupiter and Saturn, the
Milky Way and extra galactic space. The show looks back on historical
discoveries and also imparts the present state of knowledge about the structure
of the solar system & universe using a full dome digital video in
combination with opto-mechanical projector, consisting of 3D computer
animations, film clips, etc.
The show Timings : 12.00, 01.00 PM, 02.00 PM,

Science on A Sphere Show:
Centre Nagpur has added a new facility called Science On a Sphere to the
attractions. Science on a Sphere Show was inaugurated on 07TH March
2018 at 11.00 am by Shri. A.S. Kiran Kumar, Vikram Sarabhai
Distinguished Professor and Former Chairman, ISRO.
Science On a
Sphere (SOS) is a spherical projection system created by The National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an American scientific
agency within the United States Department of Commerce that focuses on
the conditions of the oceans and the atmosphere. NOAA warns of dangerous
weather, charts seas and maps the use of ocean and coastal resources.
SOS presents high-resolution video on a suspended globe rather than a
flat screen, with the aim of better representing global phenomena.
Animated images of atmospheric storms, climate change, and ocean
temperature can be shown on the sphere to explain these complex
environmental processes. SOS systems are most frequently installed in
science museums, universities, zoos, and research institutions, although
new and novel uses for these systems in a variety of presentation
spaces and contexts are starting to emerge. The system has been
installed in more than 150 locations worldwide. The shows are conducted
every day at 12.00, 1.00, 2.00 3.00, 4.00, 5.00 pm
