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.

“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.”

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.
