Porvorim:Science and Community Park, which has been conceptualized by the initiative of Porvorim MLA Rohan Khaunte was inaugurated on Thursday at Pundalik Nagar in Penha-de-Franca panchayat area.
The park was inaugurated by PWD Minister Dipak Pauskar in presence of Khaunte on Thursday with all the COVID19 appropriate behaviours in place. The gathering was restricted to a smaller crowd during the inauguration.


The park will provide a learning experience both to the students and youths to explore and contribute to the science learning.
Khaunte said that there are many reasons why science parks are increasingly popular worldwide. They are open air, full of fun and a relaxed learning environment. Children get opportunity to observe, feel, and enjoy many scientific phenomena that surround us.
The Science and Community Park at Porvorim, provides a learning experience both to the students and youths to explore and contribute to the science learning. The facilities include, learning by doing, play with scientific instruments, peer learning, exploring nature in its lap, observing sky to locate and learn the outer space and planets.
A dedicated activity space in the park is provided for schools to utilise and display science and action projects. This space is purely utilised as collaborative space to create a new knowledge through experiential learning.
The amphitheatre is to showcase and screen science and environment films and to organise invited guest lectures on topics of science, environment and atmosphere. Teachers from the nearby schools can utilise this space for organising science events.
A space is created on top of the building is for star gazing and exploring atmospheric science through highly sophisticated instruments. The lecture hall/community space is for discussion, debate and to study in association/guidance of instructor/facilitator.
Khaunte said that the park is property of the people and they should maintain it with love and care. Park provides an outdoor learning opportunity. Make use of it for your overall capacity development.
The park will have free internet facility, which can be made use for scholastic purpose.
“We encourage innovation and new ideas. Should you have one, please share with the Instructor/facilitator. Park is meant to be used as learning facility. You may sit anywhere, be it under the tree. Enjoy the company of tree and its associate lives,” he said.
Khaunte said that the park should not be used for any other purpose than a learning hub.
