‘Project Paridhi’ is a science experimentation project by SPACE to popularize hands on science. This project was initiated by SPACE 5 years ago with the intention to increase awareness amongst Indians that science can be done without any complicated equipment. Under this project the students find out the circumference of the Earth by taking measurements of the shadows made by the sun in a day, as done 3000 years back by astronomer Eratosthenes, who was able to measure it within 2% of the present accepted value. This project has also been accredited in a report on ‘Astronomy in Public Places and Highways’ by French Professors, Mr. Prof. Denis Savoie and Prof. Bonnet Bidaud.
On the occasion of Autumn Equinox on September 23rd, 2017. Project Paridhi will be conducted on various locations by SPACE through its regional offices in Chennai, Delhi-NCR, Dehradun, Ludhiana, Meerut and Surat to reach out to maximum number of audiences and also conducted this Project in parks as Community Engagement program.
