CHANDIGARH, India, December 7, 2022 — With a mission to motivate students to choose sciences as a career after schooling, Chandigarh University launched a Mobile Science Bus today. It is equipped with state-of-the-art research and practical-lab facilities that can help students perform advanced practices that are part of their course curriculum. The Science bus project is of the Government of India’s Mobile Science Exhibitions (MSE) mission. It is a joint effort of Chandigarh University and the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The inauguration ceremony was presided over by the Adviser to Chandigarh Administrator, Mr. Dharam Pal (IAS), along with Mr. Harsuhinder Pal Singh Brar (PCS), Director of School Education Chandigarh; Mr. Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor of Chandigarh University; Ms. Purva Garg, Education Secretary Chandigarh; and Mr. Rajeev Kumar, Principal, Govt. Model Senior Secondary School Sector-22 Chandigarh.

The science bus, designed with modern equipment and relevant facilities worth one crore, aims at covering all the schools across the union territory of Chandigarh. A team of 20 faculty members will lead the bus. In addition, four research scientists from Chandigarh University will be on the bus. The bus will showcase projects and help students perform more than 150 experiments from up to Class 12 in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, along with providing information about various devices, tools, and developments in the sector. The bus carries additional kits for students to perform experiments. A multimedia projector screen is also present for conducting experiments in a group.

Mr. Dharam Pal, Adviser to Chandigarh Administrator, said, “This Science Bus will become a milestone in school education and learning as it will reach out to every student where they can perform science practicals to enhance their learning. Some government schools in the periphery of Chandigarh are still establishing laboratory infrastructure. Hence, the Science Bus designed by Chandigarh University will reach their doorstep. The Department of Education, Union Territory of Chandigarh, will also help in this project by sending their teachers for training in new technology to get equipped with the skills needed to teach the students.”

Chancellor Satnam Singh Sandhu said, “The bus aims to cover all schools in Chandigarh within six months. Starting December 7, the bus will visit the model schools in Sectors 20 and 35 of Chandigarh, followed by the government schools in rural areas.”
