National Science Day

A celebration of Science.


IUCAA takes its research to the masses through an Open Day on February 28 every year. This day is also popularly recognised as National Science Day (NSD). For decades now, thousands of people visit the campus to attend and participate in popular science exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, screening of scientific films, Q&A sessions etc. Research Work, especially that done at IUCAA, is showcased through a poster exhibition.

This year, we would like to keep you all safe under the COVID-19 restrictions. However, we still welcome you join us online with your family & friends on February 28 for a day filled with, virtual interactions, inspiring talks and exciting demonstrations to educate and dazzle you.

February 28, 2021

We welcome you - virtually - from 10am to 5pm.

Location: IUCAA SciPOP Youtube channel [ ]

Note: This year, there will be no in-person visits held in the IUCAA Campus, but you can connect with us on your own phone / computer!
