    I don't have any knowledge about local Hyderabad science centers, but if you feel your child will enjoy hands on experimentation then try getting him kits like Snap circuits, or Physics or Chemistry workshops.

    If you or your spouse are interested you can get the Geek Dad or Geek Mom series of books, and work one on one with your kid. Those books have some really fun family projects.

    Since your child is around 10, he/she is at the right age to start experimenting with programming and robotics if so inclined. One of the best tools to teach graphical programming to kids is the Scratch project from MIT. They help kids develop logical thinking by using LEGO like building blocks to create programs.

    If it is within your budget you can look at the LEGO Mindstorms series. They are LEGO toolkits for building programmable robots. They offer a lot of cool addon hardware but can get very expensive very quickly.

    Honestly, as far as experimentation goes, your initiative and commitment are the only limits. If you are willing to put in the time, most experimental materials and hardware can be bought from wholesale markets for very cheap. Plans and procedures are all available online these days. Just Google a project and set up a time to work on it. It will be a very enriching experience for both you and your child.

    Good luck!

    check arvindgupta toys from trash and science experiments.. i am his fan for almost a decade..the simple way experiments are done..
    ArvindGuptaToys Books Gallery
    check his youtube channel too.. you can also follow whizkidscience, hooplakidzlab

    some of the experiments can be easily done at home and can definitely help kids understand the principles..
