    The Kochi science park for children was originally proposed by Mr. P. Rajiv M P in the year 2012. This idea was shared with the Kalamassery municipality, which in turn presented it to the chief minister of Kerala Mr. Oommen Chandy. Kerala government allowed 5.25 acres of land from the Kinfra Park near the Medical College and HMT in Kalamassery. The total cost for construction of the park is about 9 crores. The 5.25 acres of land was given for free by the government. The Thrillarium, which is a 5-D movie theatre with simulator was constructed at a cost of Rs 1.54 crore donated from the local area development fund of Mr. P Rajeev (former MP) (Rs 1 crore) and two nominated MPs Mr. H K Dua and Mr. Ashok S Ganguly.

    Radiation warning

    While the science park is one of the most exciting developments in Kochi, there are some concerns too. Indian Navy has come out with a warning about the strong levels of radiation from the adjacent NAD campus. Naval authorities have said that they should not be held responsible for any radiation hazards at the Kochi science park.

    When the municipality approached naval authorities for NOC for the park, they were asked to submit an undertaking regarding the same. The NOC for the park was given on March 19, 2014, based on the alterations suggested for construction of buildings. But NOC was given along with strong warning: The high power transmission station could emit high frequency electro magnetic radio waves that could affect the biological systems.

    However, the municipal authorities are confident that this will not affect the visitors as the park is open only for a few hours and there are no radiation hazards reported in the neighborhood till date. There is a university hostel and a campus operate closer to the transmitting station. Also, all alterations suggested by the naval authorities have been implemented.
