National Science Center becoming a reality!

A science culture is essential for any country to move towards a knowledge economy. Today Science Centres are becoming increasingly recognized and valued as a key component of educational and recreational infrastructure in many countries, for inculcating scientific awareness and scientific temper. More than 200 million visitors participate in exhibitions and programmes conducted by over 1200 science centres around the world each year, and these numbers are growing. Unfortunately, Sri Lanka with a population of 20 million people, a fifth of which is adolescent and school-age children and a recognized scientific establishment going back over a century is the only country in South Asia without a science museum/science centre.
