Mobile Science bus on Digital India launched in Kolkata

23 November,2015

In an attempt to popularise the Union Government’s Digital India initiative, the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), an autonomous organisation under the Ministry of Culture, has launched a ‘science bus’ here highlighting various aspects and benefits of digital technology in different sectors.

‘Museobus’, which accommodates 15 exhibits, was flagged off during the golden jubilee celebrations of the NCSM earlier this week.

The exhibition displays the development of technologies associated with computers and the Internet. It also lucidly describes the role of the Internet, the World Wide Web and mobile phones in transforming the modern digital world. The impact of digital technology on various sectors such as banking, health care and other Indian industries is depicted through numerous display panels.

To visit rural areas

“The Mobile Science Exhibition bus will soon visit the rural areas of eastern India in an effort to spread awareness about the application of digital technology in various aspects of our lives such as agriculture and education,” Director General of NCSM G.S Rautela told The Hindu on Sunday.
