Official launch of the Abu Dhabi Science Center

In the presence of H.E. Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Community Development, the Abu Dhabi Technology Development Committee (TDC) announced today the official launch of the Abu Dhabi Science Center (ADSC). The two-storey centre, covering 6,500 square metres, is expected to draw more than 200,000 visitors a year. Building is due to begin this year in Masdar City.

It is one of TDC’s initiatives to promote science, technology and innovation. Seven themed galleries featuring over 200 interactive exhibits and 120 educational programs have been designed for children ages 6-11, and developed to support and enhance the ADSC visitor experience. Opportunities for participating in gallery walks, taking part in hands-on laboratory experiments, and spending a school holiday week in science day camp or a Saturday in a science club are all part of an extensive program menu that will be available to children. NorthernLight has developed the visitor experience planning, gallery design and building integration and designed the 200+ exhibits.
