NCSTC has played a pioneering role and blazed new trails on the Indian science popularization scene. The major emphasis of NCSTC has been on development, adaptation, promotion and use of different communication methodologies. Various media, traditional and non-traditional, being utilized for the purpose include print, audio/radio, video/TV and folk-forms like songs, dances, street-plays, puppetry, etc. NCSTC is the organization that has taken a whole lot of steps and actions to prepare science communicators of different kinds at different levels, for different purposes in almost all States.
