Description of the project:
The Regional Science Centre (RSC), Vijayawada, located at Bhavanipuram, Vijayawada, built in 2005 consisting of a science centre building, an open air theatre, a park and a guest house. The existing building houses 2 galleries on ground floor and an EduSat satellite connectivity on the mezzanine floor. Although the RSC, Vijayawada is functioning since 2005, the exhibits and facilities are very old. Also, after bifurcation of the state, Amaravati-Vijayawada region gained huge importance since it is projected as the state capital and started attracting big investments and population.
