National Science Centre, Delhi

Innovation Space
The Innovation hub has been equipped with components namely, Hall of Fame with stories of Inventions and Inventors, Innovation Resource Centre with online access to innovation-centric resources, Innovative Laboratory to carry out activities, experiments and projects. It provides a unique opportunity for children of various age groups to work at the facility during the week-ends to develop their ideas on various aspects of Science & Technology. A part of the Innovation Space also conducts activities on robotics and its coding. In this facility students learn application of Robots, basic of movement, controlling of direction, PCB assembly of robot, programming on computer and fusing program on microcontroller chip.
One needs to be a member of the Innovation Space in order to avail the facility. At present the facility is open only for school students.
