Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan is an all India non-profit educational and cultural organization established in 1939. Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan established the Muktangan Exploratory Science Centre (MESC) in 1992 and is a distinctive Science Centre, which aspires to stimulate curiosity and arouse science learning in young children.
The Centre values science as an indispensable tool for understanding the world around us. Children from different schools are encouraged to experience science by performing experiments and activities in seven well-equipped state-of-the-art laboratories to compliment formal education. Here children learn to explore and experiment, invent and innovate. The Centre is working ceaselessly over two and half decades, to generate inquisitiveness, develop scientific attitude and temperament in children. Exploratory takes these budding scientists on an unending journey of exploration.
