As part of the Science Day celebration, the Department of M.Sc. Computer Science of Al-Ameen College visited the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum (VITM) in Bangalore on 28 February 2023. The museum, a constituent unit of the National Council of Science Museums (NCSM), Ministry of Culture, Government of India, was established in memory of Bharat Ratna Sir M. Visvesvaraya, a renowned engineer and statesman.
On arrival, we were welcomed by the staff and given a brief introduction to the museum and its exhibits. We then started our visit by exploring the various galleries and exhibits, starting with the Science Demonstration Show.
This exhibit provided us with an insight into the history of aviation and the technological advancements that made it possible. We also explored the Space Technology gallery, Biotechnology Museum and the Seed Museum, which provided us with insights into the advancements in space technology, biotechnology and agriculture.
Overall, the visit to the Visvesvaraya Industrial and Technological Museum was an enriching experience.
