About the Book
The Centre for Science and Technology of the Non-Aligned and Other Developing Countries (NAMS&T) Centre) has brought out a publication entitled “The Changing Role of Science Centres and Museums in Developing Countries” based on the proceedings of the international workshop on the above subject held in Hanoi, Vietnam, during 20-22 October 2004. Science centres and museums are very important in discovering and exploring ideas and also in helping to forge a strong relationship between science and society. The role of museums in society has also expanded as they are not merely concerned with the procurement, care, study, display of objects but also are the information centres for understanding our world, raising public awareness of current research and stimulating an interest in science among people. The content is focused on the programmes, activities, galleries, displays, exhibits, methods, means, strategies etc to attract more visitors to the science centres and museums. The volume contains contributions from well known experts from various developing countries and an overview on the status of the science centres in these countries. It also includes the Hanoi Resolution 2004 signed by 14 country representatives respectively from Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Sudan, Vietnam, Zambia.
