Science is one of the biggest mysteries of the world. Every mystery can be solved with the help of science laws and logics. To progress in the world one needs nothing but a good knowledge of science. A country evolves because of the scientists who find new ways and prove new laws. India celebrates its National Science Day in order to pay respect to the famous invention from the scientist, Sir Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman. This famous Indian Physicist discovered the law of scattering lights when passed over different particles. This discovery was known to the world as the Raman Effect. To honour this discovery every year on 28th February the country celebrates its National Science Day.

On this day every school, university, college and research organisation celebrate the day with a special theme. To make this day more special for the people working for the progress of science in the country the NCSTC declared the National Science Popularization award in order to recognize the excellence in the field of science made by others. This award is given to every researcher or a person who has contributed in the field of science. For every scientist present in India it is one of the most prestigious awards to achieve.

On this day the various institution of the country celebrate it by organising a science exhibition every year. Every year the exhibition has a special theme and students of the school illustrate their science projects on this day. Every year the students produce some great science projects that can be used in the future. Some schools try to make some special projects that explain all the laws and theorems of Science practically on this day. The researchers take this day as an opportunity to bring out their researches and explain them to the world. On this day special movies based on science is telecasted in order to spread more about science.
