Pakistan Science Club was born as an idea in 2007 and became a reality on the 8th of August 2008 by the continual efforts of Mr. Abdul Rauf who stands as the Founder and CEO of Pakistan Science Club with Ch Qamar Raza as Vice President, Mr. Abdul Qadeer as the General Secretary, with the rest of the staff under the general hierarchy of the club.
Why we Start Science Club
Mr. Abdul Rauf shared his story at BBC Urdu
The current situation in Pakistan is that fewer and fewer of its citizens are being trained in technical/scientific backgrounds like scientists and doctors while scientific education in the rest of the world like Europe, USA, and Asia are on the rise. The amount of science being taught at the educational level across the country is dangerously dropping. Science in this country is clearly taking a back seat to the other occupations such as business, sports, and other disciplines.
To root out these problems and to work on a progressive level, PAKISTAN SCIENCE CLUB (PSC) has embarked on a mission to make people aware of the importance of science and technology, its benefits, and the nation’s urgent need for her technical manpower.
PAKISTAN SCIENCE CLUB ( PSC) aims to provide a scientific and working environment for the local public (students/hobbyists/researchers etc.) where they will be able to collaborate among themselves and other institutions via PAKISTAN SCIENCE CLUB (PSC) exchanging innovative ideas and creative mindsets as PSC also looks forward for collaboration with other institutes/organizations.
