Karachi: Foundation for Diffusion of Scientific Knowledge (FDSK) will organise FDSK Interactive Science Gallery at Pakistan Maritime Museum Karsaz on February 5, 2014.
According to an official of the FDSK, “Being the first-of-its-kind in the city, FDSK Interactive Science Gallery showcases a combination of basic and applied sciences: there are pulleys and gears to illustrate the basic machines, fun optics, energy-generation exhibits and water-related exhibits. There is also a Space Corner developed by SUPARCO. It has been open since August 23, 2013. Science videos are also being shown in the gallery as well as in the auditorium. An interactive Sundial has also been constructed in the lawn of the museum.”
She said that Karachi’s first Interactive Science Gallery was established last year.
“It is centrally located at the Pakistan Maritime Museum. This gallery has been established by the voluntary efforts of the citizens of Karachi under the banner of Foundation for Diffusion of Scientific Knowledge.
“Foundation for Diffusion of Scientific Knowledge is a charitable Trust which is striving to establish Science Centres and Museums across the country. FDSK’s mission is to present Science and Technology in ways which will entertain, educate and inspire the youth to appreciate and undertake scientific inquiry and research, as well as motivate parents and entrepreneurs into investing in scientific and technological education and research, paving the way for a brighter and a more prosperous future,” she said.
