Thiruvananthapuram: Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday released the logo of the highly anticipated Global Science Festival of Kerala. The logo is inspired by Charles Darwin's iconic 'Tree of Life' drawings.

The festival is scheduled for December 2023 at Thiruvananthapuram Life Science Park.

The Science Festival, organised by the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) and Amuseum Artscience, is expected to be a two-month-long extravaganza, featuring an array of engaging activities and exhibits.

With a vision to promote scientific temper and innovation, the state budget for 2022-23 allocated Rs 4 crore for the festival. Additional funds to support the estimated cost of Rs 10 crore will be sourced through sponsorships and ticket sales. Government claims Global Science Festival of Kerala will be the Asia’s biggest science festival.

One of the main highlights of the festival will be the elaborate festival complex, featuring a specially curated scientific exhibition centred around the theme of 'Life Science'. Spanning an impressive 2.5 lakh square feet, this pavilion will house a multitude of engaging elements.

It will also host a diverse range of programmes like night sky observations to student science congresses, workshops, art shows, and lectures. Participation of international institutions, organisations, and museums will be ensured.

Outreach programmes in schools across the state will start in July 2023. Moreover, rural areas will witness street installations, three-dimensional mapping projections, and art walls, bringing the spirit of the festival to every corner of the state.

A permanent science exhibition centre in Thiruvananthapuram will be set up as part of the festival, aiming to create a lasting legacy.

The Government of Kerala envisions transforming Thiruvananthapuram into a distinguished science city that will gain international recognition, said the chief minister after releasing the logo.
