The progression towards a more scientifically immersed community continues as the KSS plans to organize the third Science Mela in October, 2019, in collaboration with the Ali Institute of Education. Since 2019 is the International Year of Periodic Table, our Mela this year will be focused on the wonders of chemistry including elements, minerals, compounds, mining and major industrial processes. The other sets of exhibits will be divided into several parts such as life sciences, wildlife flora and fauna, AI and electronics, mineral and agricultural resources and space sciences, to name a few. The Lahore Science Mela is open-to-all and invites interest from science organizations, aspiring scientists and researchers, professionals and other potential exhibitors. We coridally send an open invitation to all citizens of Pakistan, especially the studetns, teachers, parents and senior citizens to help us initiate the Science Mela Culture in our beloved country.

The LSM Series comprises of annual science festivals organized to cater to the need for the promulgation of scientific ideas and news among the general public. The event is accesible to all and we do not charge any fee from the exhibitors or the visitors. We gather students, teachers, parents and senior citizens from different parts of Lahore and the surroundings and make science available to them in its most simplest and comprehensive form. Apart from being temporary hubs of practical and experimental science, the Melas also become a platform for emerging scientists, science clubs, non-profit science organizations, tech startups, and other government and non-government based bodies to introduce themselves to the community. 

 

We welcome the Cricket matches between Pakistan and Sri Lanka on October 5-6, 2019 in Lahore. To ensure your smooth participation in the Lahore Science Mela 2019, we have re-scheduled it to October 12-13, 2019
