In perhaps a first, National Science Day celebrations in India have gone virtual this year.
Observed on February 28 of each year to mark the discovery of the Raman effect, this day would have seen, under normal circumstances, several research and scientific institutes in the city organize an open day for students and the general public. However, due to this year’s pandemic, the celebrations are online.
The coming day is planned for interesting scientific discussions, performances and presentations.
Some institutes in the city, which have run programs on occasion, include the Interuniversity Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA). The center will have a live “question-and-answer session” with eminent cosmologist Jayant Narlikar at 2:00 pm that day.
