Speaking on the occasion, Registrar, Prof. M Afzal Zargar said the main aim and objective of the science communication, popularization and extension (SCoPE) project is to popularise science through the regional languages and to inculcate scientific temper among them.

“During the last few centuries, there has been huge advancement in science and technology and there is no aspect of human life where science hasn’t made any impact. However, over the years there has been a social disconnect between the scientist community, who haven’t been able to communicate and deliver the message regarding scientific innovations. Times are changing now and science communication, an emerging discipline, is bridging the gap between scientists and commoners”.
