  2. Respected sir,
    I, being a student, would be my humble request to please repair and correctly maintain several of the beautifully designed and explaining models and experiments present there. I visits the facility in October and many of the working models were either damaged or did not function properly. The place was also quite dusty. It would be sincere request to you to quickly look into the issue and do the necessary needed as it would be a shame to see the state of the art facility in its current state. Thank you!

  3. Dear Sir,

    Is there any process for registering students names, so that they can get updated on the happening at Regional Science Center, Coimbatore and participate in the programs.
