Subharata Chaudhuri, Director, Science City, Kolkata told BE, “These children are from the interiors of Sunderbans and come from socially marginalized communities. Even a few years back, mainstream lifestyle was a dream to them. Science City is undertaking these programmes where we are trying to reach out to those who are at the end of the crew.” He added, “We are collaborating with CRY. They bring 40 children every month and we arrange for their food and offer them a trip around this science park.” With these initiatives, Science City, Kolkata is living up to its motto of ‘Taking Science to Millions’.
