National Science Day Organized on 27-28 February 2023 By School of Health Sciences & School of Basic Sciences

Every year on February 28 to honor the discovery of the "Raman Effect," National Science Day is honored. The eminent Indian scientist CV Raman received the Nobel Prize in 1930 for creating the "Raman Effect" on this day. In 1954, he was awarded the Bharat Ratna by the Indian government. C.V. Raman, also known as Chandrasekhara Venkata Raman, was one of India's most well-known and prominent physicists. He made a significant contribution to the field of physics, particularly in the field of scatter light, which laid the groundwork for numerous other research projects that were carried out subsequently.

The School of Health Sciences in collaboration with School of Basic Sciences, The Assam Kaziranga University, planned to organize and celebrate the National Science Day from 27-28th February, 2023, as every year on February 28, there is a Nation-wide celebration called "National Science Day" that celebrates the value of science in society.
