Children’s Wonder museum could help young people learn about the world around them, according to the country’s new education minister.
Ranjan Das, who was appointed education minister on Wednesday, said the museum would help youngsters in the country gain a better understanding of the world through scientific knowledge.
“We need to educate children in a way that makes them aware of scientific knowledge, which is the basis of science,” Das told a news conference on Thursday.
“We need it to be in the curriculum, not only in the school, and not only on TV,” he added.
The project was started with a $30 million loan from the government in 2015.
Das said he hoped to launch the project in six years time.
He said the government hoped to have the museum open by 2020.
The museum would be open to all ages, he said.
“It is a unique museum, it has all the scientific facts and all the technological knowledge in the world.
The first thing it does is show the children the nature of science and its purpose.”
Das said the children’s museum would also teach them about the development of science.
“[Children] are taught that the universe is eternal, there is a God and a God created.
We must follow these laws and laws of nature.
Science teaches us that the laws of physics and chemistry must work together in order to get the result we want,” he said, adding: “I believe that this is a very important issue.”
The museum’s website says the museum is the only one in the entire world to be dedicated to the science of astronomy and physics.
It also has a section dedicated to science and engineering.
Das also said the country needed to be “truly globalised” and that India needed to “be open to science”.
Das, who is also the deputy minister of state for education, said a key component of the museum’s mission was to help children to be curious about the nature and origin of the universe.
It will be open from March 10 to April 3 every year, and visitors can visit in person, he added, adding that the museum will also help children understand the impact of different environmental factors.
The museum is located in the southern part of the city of Ahmedabad, a city of 2 million people.
