Till now three science cities – Kolkata, Jalandhar, and Ahmedabad – are in the country and the fourth science city will soon be developed in the state as well as first in the NCR region. The concept of Science City has gained popularity in metropolitan cities like Bengaluru and Mumbai. There are plans to have a museum, experiment laboratories, lecture halls, digital systems, and various libraries in the Science City.

“Science plays a major role in the development of society. The main focus will be on children so that they use the facilities and become great human beings in the future. Also, the children will also be able to clear their doubts related to science,” said Sohna SDM Chinar Chahal.
