The BA Planetarium Science Center (PSC) is an independent, not-for-profit educational foundation dedicated to increasing the public's awareness, interest and understanding of science and technology through three sections, each of which approaches science in a different manner that is relatively unconventional to the Egyptian community:

  1. The Planetarium offers a diversity of fascinating scientific shows that are both entertaining and informative; the shows also cover a wide range of age groups.
  2. The History of Science Museum covers the highlights of the historical aspect of science in Egypt during the Pharaonic and Hellenistic eras, as well as, during the golden age of the Arab Islamic world.
  3. The ALEXploratorium is a hands-on science facility dedicated to making science accessible and interesting to the public through innovative and interactive activities that explain scientific facts and demonstrate their presence in everything we see, hear or touch in our daily life.

The PSC is dedicated to stimulate and cultivate awareness, interest, and understanding of science for all visitors of the center through excellent and exciting educational programs and exhibits, and to be a regional resource and a national model for science education. It’s simplifying and communicating the principles of science to a wider public, emphasizing on school children and university students. 

The PSC is creating an experienced team, each in his/her technical field and making best use of local resources as much as possible. Since the PSC inauguration in 2002, continuous development of the center’s HR and infra-structure has been ongoing. For the past twelve years, the PSC staff has received various trainings on national and international levels to operate the PSC complex and to develop and produce informal education tools and programs.

The PSC is an ideal place to enjoy a day of fun learning
