I hear - I forget - I see - I remember - I do - I learn

"Science in Action" are three day science exhibitions exhibiting models that are dynamic and bring out the principles of science and its applications. Emphasis is placed on making the exhibit dynamic.

'Science in Action' exhibition is held twice a year. In the first exhibition in August, about 20-25 models are set up by BASE in collaboration with various research institutes like Raman Research Institute, National Aerospace Laboratory, Indian Space Research Organisation, Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Research and Indian Institute of Science. Student volunteers are trained to demonstrate the exhibits which is part of the learning process.


In the second one held later in October - November, several schools in and around Bangalore participate. About 30 experiments are selected and exhibited. Again, the students themselves explain the exhibits to the visitors.

The exhibition is best suited for students of class VII and above.
