I had the pleasant experience of watching school children making use of the Science Express at Karwar Station in mid-May. I could not enter the train, but from outside it was very impressive with different elements of the periodic table. For those who don't know about it. I have pasted two paras from the website; provided the link; and uploaded the PDF poster. Another example of how Indian Railways is being used in an innovative way
''Science Express is a unique science exhibition on a 16-coach, fully AC train, traveling across India. This exhibition showcases cutting-edge research in Science. An Indo-German collaborative project; it was flagged off on 30 October 2007 by Honorable Prime Minister of India Dr. Manmohan Singh and German
Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel. This innovative exhibition has received an unprecedented response and created four National Records. During its three phases, till April 2010, it has been visited by over 51 lakh people, mostly students. So far, it has traveled over 50,000 km, covering 150 locations, during its 600 exhibition days.
This state-of-the-art mobile exhibition attempts to develop scientific temper amongst the masses and encourages students to pursue higher studies and careers in science. It hosts interactive exhibits developed by Max Planck Society, Germany; Department of Science & Technology (DST), Govt. of India and Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre (VASCSC), Ahmedabad. It also houses the ‘Joy of Science’ hands-on lab for conducting Science & Mathematics experiments, as well as exhibitions on Climate Change and India's heritage in Science & Technology.''
