Whats New?

  • Glimpses of IEEE-VITM Distinguished Lecture series on "Mobile Communication - Past and the Future" by Dr. Paulraj A, Emeritus Professor, Stanford University, USA.

  • National Safety Science Quiz 2015

  • Launch of Golden Jubilee Year Celebrations - 28th July 2014

  • "Science on a Sphere"

  • It is a large visualization system that uses multimedia projections to display animated data onto the exterior of a sphere converting it into an immersive animated globe that shows dynamic, animated images of the atmosphere, oceans, and land of a planet. It adds as another education and outreach tool of this museum. Combined with narration and supporting material it is an innovative and powerful teaching tool to enhance informal education on earth, climate change etc. and transform the public perception to effectively implement conservation measures of the earth. The duration of each show varies between 15 to 20 minutes depending on the theme. Presently 4 shows have been designed on Solar System, Atmospheric Pollution and climatology, Tsunami, Earth – A Blue Marble.

  • "Dinosaur Enclave"

  • Dinosaurs were diverse group of animals that first appeared during the Triassic period, about 231.4 million years ago. They were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years. Spinosaurus was a huge animal from North America, measuring 12 metre long and weighing 4 to 5 tonnes. It had tall rod like bones on its back, which might have been covered with skin, like a ‘sail’ is a reminiscence of the giant reptiles that ruled the world during Jurassic period. Visitors can enjoy the movement and sound of a true size animated Spinosaurus in a recreated environment of Triassic period and even take pictures with it.

  • "Engine Hall - How Things Work"

  • This is an addition to the Engine Hall in VITM. Without machines our life will be reduced to a rigorous physical struggle. Machines help us to reduce effort, enhance the delivery time, and produce repeatedly the same product with no variation and many more advantages. We use them without realizing its presence around us. This gallery is an attempt to explain the fundamentals and working of some of these machines through interactive exhibits. Exhibits on Pulley system, Gears, different ways of transferring motion, reducing effort by levers, inclined plane, screw etc. introduces the visitors to the story of simple machines. Another section deals with the application of these simple machines in our daily life. Ever wondered! How a Ball Point pen works, the zipper that we use in almost all our clothes and covers has wonderful principles behind their operation ; this section unravels the science and technology behind such simple but essential gadgets. After the exposure to these exhibits, visitors can delve deep into the working of other machines that they see around.
