National Technology Day

11 th of May is being celebrated as the National Technology Day because it was on 11 th of May 1998 that we had the Pokhran-II. The nuclear test was a clear attempt at India expressing its determination to join the nuclear club and come out of the ambiguous position of being power that kept its nuclear option open.Nuclear power represents perhaps one of the most powerful technologies developed in the 20 th century and this was a technology that is not easily available. The success of India in a developing nuclear power not only represented India developing its own technological muscle but also success in an area which is strategically important.

Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) is co-ordinating the State level activities in connection with the observance of national Technology Day. Proposals from Vocational Higher Secondary Schools, Govt ITIs, Govt. Polytechnics, Govt./ Aided Engineering colleges, Research Organizations, Registered NGOs etc, in the Kerala State are selected for the celebration of National Technology Day. The programmes are planned to generate awareness among the students, academia,general public, etc. about the importance of Science Day and based on the focal theme through lectures, seminars, Quiz programmes, exhibitions, films shows, debates, folk forum communication, elocution etc.
