National Science Day 2024: Everything you need to know about the day

In observance of Indian scientist and surgeon C. V. Raman’s discovery of the “Raman Effect,” we mark National Science Day on February 28 each year. This day is all about acknowledging the significant impact science has had on our lives and spreading awareness of it.

The Raman Effect is the phenomenon where a light beam traveling through a transparent material scatters in a way that provides information on the molecular structure of the substance. It was discovered on February 28, 1928. Today is set aside to honor this discovery and its significance. Use this chance to send your loved ones some heartfelt thoughts and wishes so that you can celebrate this day together.
