The Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) is the oldest and most active grassroots-level science popularization movement in Pakistan. We are a non-profit endeavor to foster an enriching science culture in the educational institutions and general public of the country.
From hosting illuminating seminars and workshops, to intellectually empowering the masses across the country, we work to unravel and celebrate the potential and talent housed in Pakistan in the fields of science, technology, and innovation.
Our most prominent science-thematic activities include the Falkiyati Melas (Astronomy Festivals) in 2009, a country-wide National Science Movement in 2016, and the public Lahore Science Melas held annually from 2017 onwards.
Intertwined within our society is a multi-disciplinary history of commemorating our community’s accomplishments, spanning the fields of the natural and physical sciences. To date, we have curated hundreds of activities including science roadshows, seminars, workshops, courses, and mentorship schemes to help bring our communities closer to unveiling the future of science.
We encourage all science enthusiasts to take the plunge and join us on our mission to reform science education in Pakistan.
Lahore Science Mela
At the core of KSS is the Lahore Science Mela (LSM), the largest annual citizen science festival of Pakistan. LSM, as the flagship activity of KSS, aims to impact the public’s outlook towards science, celebrate the idea that science belongs to everyone, catapult students to a new pedestal where they could think beyond science textbooks and classrooms, create a cultural melting pot of intellectual discussion and scientific inquiry by providing a meeting place for the minds, and to inspire the next generation of scientists and technologists in Pakistan. The word Mela itself is of Farsi origin and means the mingling of ideas, peoples, and activities.
