The city-based Planetarium and Science Centre project, started in 2007; is one-of-its-kind in the entire country, to be operated by the Local Municipal body - Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC).
NMC had then launched this project in order to cultivate scientific temper and to inculcate the spirit of curiosity, reasoning and spreading science education among the young and inquisitive minds.
The local Planetarium is definitely creating a sustained interest among Nashikites and even going beyond that, by creating social awareness in the city.
