Science Forum

Introduction

The Science Forum of Prabhat Kumar College, Contai was set up by the then Science Teachers of College under the mentorship of Prof. Anil Kuman Das in 1993 with a noble mission to promote science education not only amongst the students of natural as well as biological sciences but to disseminate the knowledge of basic science amongst the students across different disciplines. Prof. Das was himself the founder Convener of the Forum and continued up to his retirement (2002). Through the activities of this forum the Science Teachers wanted to inculcate scientific attitude and develop interest in scientific hobbies in all the students. To keep the students in touch with the recent developments in science, it was decided that a resource person (from our College / outside) would be invited to make a popular deliverance on science along with a student speaker, and an annual journal would be brought out. Dr.DwijendranathSain, Department of Mathematics, Ramnagar College was invited as the first resource person of the Seminar
