Abstract:

Community science is a multidisciplinary approach to disseminate scientific knowledge among rural people. It involves collective approach of scientist, government, district and regional working personnel. A gap exists between science and its practice in rural areas. Several factors contribute to this gap i.e. inadequate skill, poor financial support, inadequate availability of literature, poor adaptability in local area. To overcome these issues, community science conduct different training, seminar, conferences, nukkad natak, video film to spread scientific awareness among rural people. It enhances scientific knowledge to rural people which in turn change the socio-economic condition of rural area.
