The Science Express – Bio-Diversity Special (SEBS) is coming to Coimbatore on August 20 and will be halting at Coimbatore Junction till August 23.
The exhibition in the train showcases aspects of climate change, water, energy conservation, environment and the legacy of the Science Express.
The expo-on-wheels, a collaborative initiative of the Department of Science and Technology and the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests is an innovative and unique mobile exhibition mounted on a specially-designed 16-coach AC train travelling across India.

The exhibition aims to showcase the wide array of biodiversity in the country and the conservation measures adopted.
