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.
