An Enlightened Mind
Duration: 22 Minutes

Suitable for children starting from 4 years old and above

An Enlightened Mind sheds light on the famous Arab scientist Al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham and his significant contributions to the field of optics, which led to the establishment of telescopes later on. The show focuses on Ibn al-Haytham’s life in Egypt during the reign of Al-Hakim bi-Amr Allah. It was during that time that Ibn al-Haytham gained much fame as he produced imperative ideas and theories on vision, and the composition of images inside the human mind. These theories led to the industry of cameras and the development of photography techniques later on. The show combines documentary information and drama, which is a new trend in the planetarium shows.
