About

aboutThe State of Karnataka is a land blessed with many fascinating age-old monuments, world heritage sites, lush green forests, amazing wild life, spectacular waterfalls, timeless temples, fully vibrant with art and culture. Karnataka has carved out a special place in the field of science specially IT and BT and is called the science capital of India. It has taken a major initiative of developing a large number of science centres in the state for creating scientific temper and for enhancing the understanding of science and spreading a culture of science in the state and for benefiting the children. The first Science Centre in this series is the Dharwad Regional Science Centre.
