National Science Day February 28

 National Science Day

The National Science Day (NSD) is celebrated on February 28. The first National Science Day in India was celebrated on 28 February, 1987. Since then, every year, this day is celebrated across the country to honour the Noble Prize winner, Indian physicist, Sir Chandrasekhar Venkata Raman. Schools, colleges, universities and other science institutes all over the country celebrate this day with great zeal and enthusiasm.

The National Science Day spreads the message of the importance of science and its application in everyday life. The innovative use of science in every field, be it communication, education, medicine, manufacturing or travel, has made life much easier and faster. Moreover, today, children are growing up in a technology-based environment which explains that they should learn much more than the basics, to be prepared for the challenges of life. Keeping this in mind, the Ministry of Science and Technology celebrates the National Science Day to popularise the benefits of science.

On this day, the National Council for Science & Communication recognises the efforts of people in the field of science & technology and gives away awards for their fruitful contributions. Also, the country’s competence in the field of science is showcased on this day and young minds are motivated to take up science as a career.

Further, on this day, various science activities like science exhibitions, quiz competitions, debates and lectures are organised in various schools and universities, to encourage students to know more about science & technology.

Besides schools, you as a parent can also help your children to learn about the significance of Science & Technology at home, by celebrating National Science Day with them. So, go through the tips given below:

  • Tell your children about famous scientists like Albert Einstein, Marie Querie, Newton and their discoveries.
  • Explain to them about technology and explain its use in our day-to-day lives for e.g. cellphones, computers, air conditioners, remote controls and aeroplanes etc.
  • Ask them to spend leisure time by playing some online science games and quizzes.
  • Encourage them to read science magazines to know more about earth, planets, health and environment.
  • Play word games and jigsaw puzzles related to science & technology, with them.
  • Help your children to make a science project on that day at home. Ask them to use low cost material; like aluminum rolls, elastic bands, balloons, toothpicks and food colourant to make the project.
  • Encourage your children to participate in science fairs and projects.
  • Plan a visit to science & technology museums, such as Nehru Planetarium, National Science Centre.
  • Whenever your children are inquisitive about anything related to science, answer them or help them to find out the answer.

So, use the above tips and make National Science Day a learning experience for your children.
