The pavilion is more than a science museum. In science museums, the visitors are expected to see things which are exhibited. They are not expected to touch the exhibits. But in STIP, the visitors are welcome to interact with the exhibits so that the scientific principles involved are made clear to them. Almost all basic scientific experiments for school children are arranged in the pavilion so that the children can actually do the experiments leisurely. Apart from routine experimental setups, some of the systems kept ready in the pavilion are,

 Demonstration of Resonance
Sympathetic vibrations and transfer of energy
 Simple Harmonic Motion from Circular motion: Phase and phase difference concept.
 Storing of energy by a spring
Centre of gravity: Demonstration kit
Colours: Newton's colour disc
Spectrum: Spectrometer
Electromagnetic Induction: Faraday's experiment
Working model of dynamo
Working model of motor
Working model of windmill
Working model of steam engine
Human body: skeleton system
Model of eye
Model of kidney
