About us

The Centre for Science in Society (C-SiS) was started in 1991 in the Cochin University of Science and Technology(CUSAT) campus in view of popularization of Science and Technology among children. The Centre conducts various programmes about science throughout the year. The Centre has its own facilities like library, workshop, computer lab, science lab, toy lab, science park etc. Children can touch and feel those theories they have studied in their schools. The Centre aims to create scientific awareness among children through play models. Apart from various programmes using the facilities of the Centre, there are seminars, quiz programs, visits to research institutions, University departments, industries etc. Students can do projects using the facilities of the Centre. The Child Scientist's Forum which meets twice in every month for the full year is another opportunity for the young scientists to get practical knowledge through seminars, projects, short visits to University departments etc. In One Day Attachment Programme (ODAP), the students can come to the Centre with their teachers to spend the whole day. The computer awareness and household technology course for the public is a two month-course by which any one can learn basic computer functions.

Dr. J.S. Rajput

“It is indeed fascinating. The effort, supplemented by creative ideas is evident everywhere. It needs replication of a much larger scale. I would certainly talk about it at various places and exhort people to visit it, get ideas and put them to use for developing scientific temper and a greater appreciation of the relationship between science and technology.”

Director, NCERT, NewDelhi.

Mr.R. Gopalakrishnan I.A.S

“A world of possibilities opening up for children is what I saw here. Tremendous replication value. Imagination is the greatest resource and what could be better than such a stimulating environment as this for children.”

Mr. V. Ramachandran

One place which gives hope for the future. It will ignite many young minds and make them invent. Invention and innovation are what our country badly needs. All those working here deserve wholesome praise. I have started dreaming of at least one such Centre in each district of Kerala in the next five years. I hope I will be able to play my part in making it happen.”

Directors Message

Prof (Dr) M. Bhasi

Professor, Cochin University of Science and Technology

Science learning has traditionally been focused on note learning

Science learning has traditionally been focused on rote learning. The focus has been to instruct and focus on the “building blocks” rather than the practices or processes of the discipline. The effect is that learners might remember the “building blocks” but are unable to put them together to solve problems. There is need to improve the integrated understanding of science concepts and the accompanying content knowledge. There is more of a need to focus on process skills for gathering, creating and processing that knowledge.

The centre for science in society (C-SiS) has so far had about two lakh students and eight thousand teachers benefiting from visit to the centre, from its inception in 1996.

Prof (Dr) M. Bhasi

Professor, Cochin University of Science and Technology

We have set up a series of labs to create about 16 learning stations for students to do experiments, interact with models, play games, ask questions, discover answers and to learn the facts as well as process of science in a different way. We have in this way tried to influence the way of teaching and learning science.

We are still learning and growing ourselves. We invite researchers, teachers and students to be a part of C-SiS as input providers, trainers, model makers or learners.
