The seeds of the Community Science Centre and Planetarium were sown in the year 1979 when a group was ready to work at Rajkot on development of scientific temper and a beginning was made in the name of “Prayog” to remove belief in miracle and superstition etc.

The objective of the Community Science Centre and Planetarium is to impart knowledge related to science and maths to children with the help of educational programmers, workshops, and seminars.
