The Science Express is a joint Indo-German pathway to discovery. It invites you along on a fascinating expedition into the mysteries of our world – to groundbreaking discoveries, emerging issues of cutting-edge science and future-oriented technologies. You will travel from the smallest elements of our world to the largest structures in outer space.
Exciting images, video clips and interactive exhibits will offer fascinating insights into the hidden worlds of atoms, cells, neurons and bytes, as well as the complex interactions of civilizations, planets, stars and galaxies. The exhibition takes modern research out of the lab and reveals just how relevant science is to everyday life. Discover how science is enabling society to face the global challenges of the 21st century. The Science Express will travel throughout India and make stops in 55 cities.

Science Express to arrive in Nashik on Sunday
Eight of the 16 coaches are solely dedicated to displaying the biodiversity spread across the bio-geographical zones of India like trans-Himalaya and Himalaya, the Gangetic plain, North East India, the Western Ghats, the Indian deserts, the semi-arid zone, the Deccan peninsula and the coasts and the islands.
Field officer of the central government Parag Mandle said, “Biodiversity is a current issue for all. We have sent letters to schools including civic schools. Directorate of field publicity is also conducting programmes for some school children. Before the students see the train, we will be informing them about what biodiversity is and why it is necessary for us. We will have quiz competition as well and will give environment-related books to them. We will be doing it with Marathi Vidnyan Parishad.”
He said that the train will be stationed on the track for parcels and that the entry for visitors will be from the lane near the Devi Mandir where the parking lot is located. Visitors will have to take Subhash Road to reach here.
Hope Nasikaties will take benefit of such fantastic initiative.
