HYDERABAD: As a part of their  double platinum jubilee celebrations, the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and its reseach lands in the city opened their doors to school children for a six-day science exhibition in the grounds of a IICT-run high school in Habsiguda.    

The first day of the event, organised by the research labs on Friday, saw over 5,000 children from different schools visit the exhibition.

Rikitha Reddy, a class eighth student of Tejasvi Vidyaranya school said,  “I never knew science was so interesting. The scientists told me how maths and science are very much related.”

IICT, CCMB and NGRI set up numerous stalls designed along nine science based themes. 

G Satheesh Reddy, scientific advisor to defence minister and director general, missiles and strategic systems who inaugurated the event, said exhibitions such as the ones organised by CSIR needed to be taken to smaller towns as they aid in instilling scientific temper among students and public.
