Science Park Jaipur
For most students and general people alike Science is a subject that is highly boring, or is usually considered as a subject that is prerogative of studious students or highly accomplished people. However, for people of Jaipur science doesn’t necessarily have to be synonymous with boredom or frighteningly intellectual. If anything people of Jaipur can have immense fun while learning priceless lessons of science. This is all thanks to a dedicated Science Park in Jaipur, which is located in renowned Shastri Nagar. At Science Park Jaipur science is indeed a far cry from being an utterly boring & mundane subject. Here in fact science meets entertainment in the most remarkable way.
Established in 1998, Science Park Jaipur was brainchild of Department of Science & Technology of Rajasthan Government. This park was envisioned purely for the purpose of inculcating scientific awareness among budding students and general people alike, but not without dose of fun and entertainment. And this unique park, it seems, has achieved its desired and noble intentions quite convincingly.
This is amply proven by the fact that it has been visited by more than 10 million people since its inception. The reason for its popularity is actually more than obvious. However, keeping aside its obvious entertainment quotient itself, people also do visit this park for the fact that they get to see many wonders of modern science in the midst of lush & serene greenery. And secondly & most importantly, the park itself is very big and offers many interesting attractions including state-of-the-art 4000 sq mtrs Regional Science Center. This unique park is indeed a huge ocean of science where you can explore all the modern miracles of science under one roof.
