Chemistry: Our Life, Our Future

We have plunged with enthusiasm into the challenging task of untangling the cryptic codes of chemistry only to be surprised by a fascinating world of wonders. 

Behavioral Sciences and Mental Health

Communication and psychological sciences are quite intriguing and surprising; mainly because their secrets are extremely well hidden within highly intricate and quite invisible systems that require very complicated methods to unravel and test. 

Life Sciences

Understanding the different forms of life and how they work is essential for preserving human health, and also safeguarding biodiversity that is essential to the survival of life on Planet Earth.

Earth Sciences

Earth, our unique blue planet, is the only world that we know of to host life of endless variety. Over millennia, the curiosity of Man has led him to unravel numerous secrets of the enormous universe; yet, we have only scratched the surface and we are yet to discover life somewhere else in its vastness. On the other hand, our knowledge of our own planet has expanded exponentially; yet, it seems the more we know about it, the more fascinating it becomes.

Astronomy and Space Sciences

Mankind has always had passion for discovering the sky and a dream about exploring other worlds. Thus, he established one of the oldest sciences in history; Astronomy. It is the science of the universe and the science for which planetariums were created to begin with, although in modern-day planetariums, including ours, all sciences and science-related themes are tackled.

The Scientist Inside You

Science is no longer confined to classrooms or school laboratories. Nowadays, science centers and museums offer informal science education and make science much more fun. SCIplanet is taking you a step further by bringing science to your home.

Safe Summer

Summertime; who does not wait for it impatiently and excitedly? Despite the heat and humidity, summertime remains the time we all associate with fun, good times, and happy memories. When we were children, summertime was when we would throw all worries out the window to spend the days playing in the sand and swimming at the beach with family and friends.

Scientists and Inventors

Science is an intellectual and practical activity conducted by humans; it is a part of human nature. We dedicate this theme to tackle the human face of science; the people who dedicate their lives to observing, contemplating, and laboring, to disentangle the complex mysteries of our universe, our planet, and ourselves. Be them young or old, males or females, Arabs or foreigners, scientists or inventors, living or dead, let us celebrate the people of science who made every scientific bliss possible to shape life as we know it now.

Agriculture, Food, and Nutrition

Naturally, food is a major bare necessity, without which life ceases to exist. Not only is food a necessity of life, but its quality also determines the quality of our life. As all food comes from the soil, whether directly in the form of plant products or indirectly in the form of cattle and poultry that feed on plants, a healthy soil is the way to a healthy life. That is basically why the 68th United Nations General Assembly declared 2015 the International Year of Soils (IYS).


In today’s world, education and knowledge are still used as a weapon, not only in dominating peoples, or in political and intelligence warfare between competing nations, but more dangerously in creating actual weapons, which also serve the purpose of dominance. To combat the state of utter chaos we find ourselves in these days—politically, socially, and economically—the only way out of this dark tunnel is education.
