Author has given an exhaustive detail of the Science City in Gujarat. It is a very knowledgeable and encouraging place for the students especially who have an interest in science and engineering.
The students can see the working models there and understand the scientific principles behind them. The working models are very inspirational and invoke the students to do something similar in the field of science.
Long back I have seen such a place in Chennai and I was much impressed by the working models there. First time I had been to planetarium there only and it was so fascinating. In fact, my little interest for astronomy started from that trip only and I brought some books from a library to understand the basics of it.
I wish more and more such centers come up in our country so that the students and other interested persons may take advantage of it.
