Research & Teaching

Konya Science Center is the first truly large interactive science center dedicated to informal learning about science and technology cooperated with The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK). TUBITAK is responsible for the exhibition support, education support for its staff and funding of this project, while the building itself is being funded and constructed by the Metropolitan Municipality of Konya, the largest city in Turkey. Indoor area is approximately 26,000 m2, total area (including all facilities) 100,000 m2. The center which first opened in April 2014 has science exhibits (Our bodies, Our World, Sultans of Science, Basic Steps, New Horizons and Our Universe have been fully established), the largest planetarium, educational departments and sky observatory building. The center has welcomed more than 500,000 visitors since its opening. It is expected that this science center will attract 1 million visitors per year, which makes it a promising attraction for Konya and Turkey. The center is open to all ages and the goal is to bring people with different backgrounds together to transfer knowledge through experimental and practical spaces that are designed to trigger curiosity. The center would satisfy all the senses of the human being. Konya Science Center has strived to not just give information, but to increase attention and appreciation of the importance of science through interaction.
