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. The center also provides housing for students preparing for science exams. Since 5 years, a program called "Vacation Training Program on Bio resources for school children" is even organized by Science city with the help of government funds to encourage students regarding Bio resources. It is a month-long program for students who gave their SSC exams, each from every district of the state.
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.
