The Science of Sports

The highly interactive and educational exhibit on "Science of Sports", developed by the Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre is now open!

With various hands-on and body-on experiences, this exhibition engages its visitors in a variety of sports challenges. From our ancient traditional games such as "La Marelle", "Sapsiwaye" and marbles, to modern and popular games such as golf, bowling, you will explore how science and technology is intrisically linked with sports and games. You will challenge your body and mind as you explore how incredible feats in sports are just science and technology at work. Discover how force, energy, pressure, centre of gravity, trajectory, friction, momentum, electicity, aerodynamics and material science affects performance
