Another display area delves on snakebite management. The Vimal Jyothi College displays a tiny unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the students of mechanical engineering. A ‘wetland’ is on display at the pavilion of the Forest Department. There are photographs depicting the flora and fauna of the State.

The MCCS, a voluntary organisation involved in cancer care and control programmes, was inaugurated by Mother Teresa in 1994.
