Gujarat Science City, located in Hebatpur, Ahmedabad, is part of a government initiative to draw more students towards education in science. The center hosts an IMAX 3D theatre, an energy park, a hall of science, Planet Earth, an amphitheatre,Life Science Park and dancing musical fountains among others.[citation needed] The center also provides housing for students preparing for science exams.Since 5 years, a program called "Vacation Training Program on Bioresources for school children" is even organised by Science city with the help of government funds to encourage students regarding Bioresources. It is a month-long program for students who gave their SSC exams, each from every district of the state.[1]

As of 2012, Science City is awaiting the opening of a long-anticipated Earth Pavilion - an earth-shaped dome created in 2009 whose goal is to showcase live experiences with natural disasters. The Pavilion will detail each continent and allow visitors to participate in hands-on activities. [2]
