Vikram A Sarabhai Community Science Centre (VASCSC) is a pioneering community science centre which aims to nurture young minds and direct them towards scientific thinking with methods and techniques which make the process of enquiry and learning a fun filled, enjoyable and lasting experience. The core of the Centre's philosophy is to take school and college students, beyond the rigid framework of textbooks and encourage them to think, explore and create.

It was way back in 1966 that India's renowned scientists Dr. Vikram Sarabhai founded the Centre that would encourage scientific thinking and innovative teaching. The Centre has to its credit a number of firsts; it being the first to have an interactive exhibition space, open laboratories, mathematics laboratory, science playground, and also the first to actively use computers in science education and develop interactive (animated) educational programmes.

In the early years, the Centre received not only Dr. Sarabhai’s guidance in the formulation of its vision and goals, but also benefited from his personal involvement in the execution of many of its programs. After Dr. Sarabhai’s untimely death in 1971, the Centre was renamed as the Vikram A. Sarabhai Community Science Centre in his honour, by the then Prime Minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi.
