Mega Science Expo 2015

4th - 8th December 2015, IIT, New Delhi

Scientific temper is fundamental to innovation. An all-encompassing scientific temper in a society is far more essential than the spread of science and technology. India has a huge number of technically qualified professionals, yet scientific temper is not absolutely evident across the nation.

The Mega Science, Technology & Industrial Expo, associated with India International Science Festival(IISF) 2015, being organised in New Delhi, aims to provide a platform to Research Organisations from within the country and all South Asian countries to share and spread their scientific ideas and discoveries.

  • Showcase Indian achievements in Science and Technology
  • Highlight art, culture and traditions depicting scientific temper
  • Emphasize inter-dependence of science-technology-innovation & society
  • Opportunity for Research Organisations from all over the country to showcase their research.
  • Interactive platform for scientists, artists, innovators

Doyens Of Indian Science

  • When we tackle obstacles, we find hidden reserves of courage and resilience we did not know we had. And it is only when we are faced with failure do we realise that these resources were always there within us. We only need to find them and move on with our lives.
    A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
  • I have not trodden through a conventional university course, but I am striking out a new path for myself. I have made a special investigation of divergent series in general and the results I get are termed by the local mathematicians as “startling.”
    Srinivasa Ramanujan
  • When we consider the fact that nearly three-quarters of the surface of the globe is covered by oceanic water, we begin to realise that the molecular scattering of light in liquids may possess an astronomical significance, in fact contribute in an important degree to the observed albedo of the earth.
    C.V. Raman
