Science, Creativity and Learning Centre, at Shoghi

Inauguration of on Science, Creativity and Learning Centre, at Shoghi by Hon’ble Chief Minister Govt. of Himachal Pradesh on 29th August, 2014 at Anandpur Shoghi, District Shimla, H.P.

INTRODUCTION

Not withstanding the fact that State of Himachal Pradesh has the highest literacy rate, yet we have to inspire, transform and stimulate thinking of children and teachers towards science.  School children in the State are by and large dependent on class room teaching limited to school hours. Further, there is a need to demystify the science so that more and more school children opt science as a subject. State Council for Science, Technology & Environment, Himachal Pradesh through its annual programme of Children Science Congress does provide a platform for students to present innovative ideas and creativity through science models and scientific project preparations. If proper opportunity and infrastructure is provided to the children in Himachal Pradesh, they have inbuilt capacity and capability to become creative individual. The sex wise percentage of pupils studying science in Senior Secondary Schools of Himachal Pradesh as per ES 1 (S), 2006-07 is as under:

In order to fulfill the requirement of children from Himachal Pradesh in particular and children visiting the state in general, Centre for Science, Learning & Creativity is proposed to be established in one of the most beautiful and picturesque surroundings situated in the outskirts of Shimla at a place Anandpur near Shogi. This centre will provide an opportunity to learning science on one hand and to give a shape to creative thoughts on the other hand.
