Together with the Bangladesh Freedom Foundation, the GSRD Foundation is working towards to popularizing science among secondary school students in Bangladesh.

The project was created by the Bangladesh Freedom Foundation in response to the unsatisfactory quality of science education at schools in Bangladesh. To make science more popular among students, science and technology related activities, such as competitions and science fairs, are organized after school. In addition, science clubs were formed that teach students more than science alone. In these groups, students develop organization and management skills, learn to work in teams and leadership qualities are developed.

The project also raises awareness among teachers and parents of the importance of science education.
