Aurangabad, located at central part of India and famous for its world heritage sites Ajanta and Ellora Caves. This is the most important city of Marathwada region and well connected with rest of important city of Maharashtra through road and railway network. The city has earned reputation of fastest growing city and successfully marked its global presence due to automobile and chemical hub. The city has become hub place for to fulfill the need of surrounding in terms of uplifting the socio-economic standard of living through the quality of education provided by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University.

The basic scientific and technological concepts involved in tour daily life as well as in our industries must be manifested in some from which the society can understand and appreciate them.
Under the affiliation of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Marathwada University around 156+ science colleges are located in the internal and rural part of Marathwada region and there are 11 science department providing state of art infrastructure to appreciate their curricula, innovative teaching, learning and research in basic and advance science subjects. The department have received research funding through UGC, DST, SERB, CSIR, DBT and other funding agencies. The thought given to establish science popularization park with an objectives to popularize the concept of science and technology in undergraduate students of rural as well as the students who joining for their higher studies in the subjects of science. The focus is on to exemplify the difficult and complex ideas so-far-put-forward in Biological,Physical science s and in the advance technology through simple models / experiments / exhibits. The use of scientific notions or concepts in day-today life and their correlations as that describes the law / hypothesis should be understood by those who studies the disciplines of Science, technology and encourage the growth of scientific literacy in the region of Marathwada. It is the need of this time when the students should be genius in understanding the scientific concepts and should develop the eyesight to ask the questions why and how regarding the facts occurring around them.technology and encourage the growth of scientific literacy in the region of Marathwada.

India is nodal center for Olympiad programs in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Astronomy; the negligible number of students from this Marathwada region mark their presence through the school, colleges and higher education institutes. Hence, increasing their awareness and bringing them in to basic research field is responsibility of the university as premier higher education institute (HEI).
The improving quality of science education and inculcating interest in the science subjects is long felt idea of our institution. Further few mobile vans acting as mobile laboratories shall be maintained by the university with the purpose
- Mobile laboratories for post school level physical, chemical, mathematical and life sciences.
- A computer literacy mobile van with an audio-visual animation, video films and multimedia materials with the support of Augmented & Virtual Reality.
In this proposal, the idea in brief will be laid down, the collaboration and consultation of National Council of Science Museum (NCSM) Kolkata, Homi Bhabha Center for Sciences Education (HBCSE) Mumbai, and other science centers are established in the Maharashtra state shall be obtained in developing the Science Technology Park of twenty first century. The university would like to take an opportunity in establishing the science technology park at Aurangabad on the university campus.
