Eureka Hall is a micro version of any large science center, dedicated to encourage students to have a firsthand feel on experimentation. Numbers of science experiments are arranged in this hall and students, teachers and general public are induced to perform and find out the reasoning behind it. This center hosts a number of setups for conducting simple but exciting experiments. Students from many schools visit this center as part of their educational trips. Since most of the students would be visiting the Eureka Hall more than once to grasp the concepts of the models exhibited out here they will attain a depth of understanding and being to develop their own ideas and thinking on a scientific plane.

Having observed the rising use of Gutka and Tobacco amongst the teenage group in the rural area, we have initiated a preventive care camp targeting the teenage population for Oral Cancer detection. This is being conducted using the VELscope technology. VELscope is the most powerful FDS approved tool for assisting in the discovery of mucosal abnormalities i.e. examination of patients and detection of Oral cancer in pre-cancerous stage.Parallelly we have also launched programmes for creating awareness and also detecting the pre cancerous conditions in women like breast cancer through PAP tests. These programmes will be conducted on a quarterly basis. Patients detected in the above cases will be treated in Tata hospital or any other hospitals in the vicinity.
