Welcome to Science Arattai @SASTRA
As part of its ongoing efforts to empower students with scientific knowledge and temper, SASTRA has initiated an
educational outreach program called "Science Arattai". This program is aimed at popularising science & technology pursuit and progresses to school children. Scientific awareness is key to overall development of the Nation. The benefits and progress in science and technology should reach students at an early stage from its practitioners itself for a better development of scientific atmosphere in the Nation. The younger generation should also be sensitized to inculcate in them an approach akin to scientific temper. With these in mind, Science Arattai has been initiated and will be organized monthly in Thanjavur, Trichy & Kumbakonam where eminent scientists will address the school students.
Science Arattai was inaugurated on 29th July by Dr. R. Gopichandran, Director, Vigyan Prasar, DST, Govt. of India. The first session was held at Kamala Subramanian Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Thanjavur, on 30th July, 2016 where Dr. Gopichandran interacted with about 100 students from Thanjavur on "Inspiring Leadership in India on Science & Technology".
