The Global Science Festival Kerala (GSFK), organized by Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) in collaboration with state and international science agencies, will showcase science, technology, and art, including the “Museum of the Moon,” the organizers said.

Amuseum ArtScience, a trust that organizes the festival with the government, said the inaugural GSFK, Asia’s largest scientific festival, will take place at the Life Sciences Park in the state capital for 45 days starting in December 2023.

GSFK costs around Rs 10 crore.

The ‘Life Science’ pavilion at GSFK 2023 will feature sophisticated science exhibits organized by professionals. The 250,000-square-foot event will feature gigantic walk-ins, digital interactive platforms, replicas, and specimens. Kumar also promised nighttime observations, a science congress, and intriguing cultural events.

The science extravaganza is being organized in collaboration with international science exhibition agencies, national and international museums, and organizations like Kerala Sasthra Sanketika Sarvakalasala, Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation, Kerala Sastra Sahitya Parishad, and various national and international organizations and associations, including the famous “Museum of the Moon,” Amuseum, a trust that promotes art and science, said in a release.

GSFK will be the first step in creating a permanent scientific exhibition center in Thiruvananthapuram and a national “Science City.”

The announcement stated that commencing in July 2023, a series of educational activities in schools around the state will teach kids the festival’s ideals and purpose. It also stated rural regions will see street displays, 3D mapping, art installations, and other engaging activities.
