Vigyan Gram

A Vigyan Gram, or a science village, is to come up on the outskirts of Tripura's capital, complete with a museum, library, planetarium, botanical garden, bird sanctuary and other attractions to popularize science among the masses.
The Vigyan Gram, to be modelled on the lines of science cities in various cities in India, would be set up at a cost of Rs 35 crore in western Tripura's Badharghat, a village on the outskirts of Agartala. Already 9.20 acres of land has been earmarked for the science village, which is scheduled to be open in the next 33 months, when the first phase gets completed. The entire Vigyan Gram would be completed would by four years.
The science village project seeks to develop awareness among people, raise the literacy and outlook of young students and people, specifically with respect to science. It will help people to learn about science and scientific works through recreational activities and promote research works. The project will also contribute towards generating employment opportunities and promote eco- tourism.
The Vigyan Gram would also offer excellent non-formal educational facility to supplement the formal science education imparted in educational institutions.
The main objectives of setting up of the Vigyan Gram includes, to grow, nurture and stimulate a culture of science and develop a scientific temper among the people in the northeastern region and to promote innovative and experimental activities through a hands-on learning process.
The Vigyan Gram would also help to promote and exhibit interaction of science, technology, energy and environment with human life and to enhance scientific awareness among the people at large and to showcase the latest scientific and techonological breakthroughs.
