We live in a culture where we may see two types of individuals. A group of people who believe in things beyond science and follow a spiritual path. Others thrive on making constant advances in science and technology. People who believe in technological miracles enjoy celebrating National Science Day in the same manner as they love to celebrate their costumes and religious festivals.

Science has pushed us to our limits. Everything around us is a product of science. The National Science Day is for those who believe in science, scientists, the younger ones who work hard to learn about science and technology, and those who enjoy scientific discoveries such as the farming community of India.

National Science Day: History and Significance

In 1928, an Indian scientist named Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman discovered a phenomenon known as the Raman Effect. For his remarkable discovery, he received the Nobel Prize in 1930, and that was the first Nobel Prize in India in the field of Science, every year National Science Day is observed to celebrate this discovery.

In 1986, the National Council for Science and Technology Communication (NCSTC) requested that February 28 be designated as National Science Day by the Government of India. The occasion is now held in schools, colleges, universities, and other science, engineering, medical, and research organisations throughout India.

National Science Day 2022: Theme

"The Future of STI" was the theme of National Science Day in 2021. This implied that science should have a positive impact on education and that learners should be more engaged in science and innovation. The topic was chosen to provide an improved understanding of current scientific problems as well as the implications of research on learning, aptitude, and profession.

Every year, the themes for such a day change, stressing a different facet of the society of the nation. The themes are meant to acknowledge the efforts of ordinary people, students, employees, public leaders, and representatives from scientific institutions.

The theme of National Science Day 2022 is 'Integrated Approach in Science and Technology for a Sustainable Future.

National Science Day 2022: Celebration and Activities

Students from various schools and colleges present different science projects, while national and state science institutes present their most recent research findings. Public speeches, radio-TV discussion shows, scientific movie exhibitions, science exhibitions based on themes and concepts, observatories, live projects and research demonstrations, debates, quiz contests, lectures, science model displays, and many other events are all part of the celebration.

It's a waste of time to live without science! Do miracles happen? It would be a separate issue, but if you believe in science, you would always consider the logic behind the decision. We have been fortunate enough to see some amazing scientific studies, breakthroughs, and technologies.

This celebration honors Sir C. V. Raman's exceptional contribution to research and discovery by providing hope and inspiration to future generations to pursue their dreams. Not to stop with just one discovery in any field, but to continue chasing the nation's credits in every way.
