 Vision

The very core of the Centre's philosophy is to take students, from both school and College, out of the rigid framework of textbooks and encourage them to think, explore and create.
Over the years, the Centre has combined formal and non-formal techniques to formulate many innovative methods to give students a better understanding of Science and Mathematics which not only make the process of learning enjoyable but also sustained and long lasting.

 
» The Centre is dedicated to promote among students, teachers and lay public:
An understanding of the fundamental concepts involved in the Physical and Biological Sciences and Mathematics.
The acquisition of scientific knowledge and insights as far as possible by the process of inquiry through experiment, audio-visual media and other means.
To stimulate interest, encourage and expose the principles of science and the scientific method to elementary, secondary and college students, teachers and the general lay public.
To be concerned with the role of education and ways of improving education in relation to the individual and the community as a whole.
To make clear the social implication of science and technology.
