Portrayal of the present state of biomedical science and technology at regional science centre, Jaipur

Author: Iyer, Ramdas N.

Keywords: Biomedical sciences
Science centers

Issue Date: 2013-01

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: The rationale behind the development of the concept for the Biomedical Revolution Gallery at the Regional Science Centre, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, rests on two fundamental concepts. One, that the progress of medicine from what it was in prehistoric times, to what it is today, was not a continuum of inventions and discoveries, each supplementing and adding to the existing corpus of knowledge but was a series of bursts, sometimes totally unrelated to the existing knowledge in the field and two, it borrowed heavily from fields far diverse and those that have no direct bearing whatsoever with the fundamental foundations of medicine, biology and chemistry. These two concepts recur repeatedly and are emphasized at regular intervals in the Gallery. Besides, the extensive use of vivid three dimensional visual components like period settings and dioramas supported by technology makes the Gallery very visual and emphatic.

Description: Includes bibliographical references.
