Lahore Science Mela 2017
A first of its kind Mela (Fair), Lahore Science Mela 2017 is going to be held soon. If you are enthusiast about science, if your brain gets flooded with a lot of questions, if there lies a quest inside you about unlocking the mysteries of universe, then get ready to have some socio-scientific fun at Lahore Science Mela, no matter who you are!! yes you’ve just read it write. Because Lahore Science Mela is really going to be first of its kind in Pakistan by catering a diverse range of audience. It is open for students from schools, colleges and universities. And its diversity doesn’t end here! it is open for the preschool kids, and even to a lay man who never attended any formal education but is a general enthusiast about science.
It is going to present science as a general curiosity, as a quest which can urge even a rural household woman to experiment something with her cooking ingredients and even as a entertainment. It is going to eradicate the concept that science is only for those smart brains who are going to be some good professionals in the future. And It will be helpful in building the concept of science as a fun activity in school and college students who think science is a boring, tough thing to learn for getting good grades. Putting in a nutshell, Lahore Science Mela is going to change the way you take science.!!
