Community Science Centre & Planetarium

The Community Science Centre and Planetarium is based in an attractive building in the Race Course area in the heart of Rajkot, Gujarat. The seeds of the Community Science Centre and Planetarium were sown in the year 1979 when a group was ready to work at Rajkot on development of scientific temper and a beginning was made in the name of “Prayog” to remove belief in miracle and superstition etc. The planetarium itself was established in the year 1992.

The objective of the Community Science Centre and Planetarium is to impart knowledgerelated to science and maths to children with the help of educational programmes, workshops, and seminars. People here believe that science is not something that can be taught on blackboards, and worked on a concept of science learning and teaching through “hands on activities” and experiments.

The infrastructure facilities at the Community Science Centre and Planetarium include Aryabhatta Science Museum, which has under its roof over 100 working science models explaining in detail varied concepts of science. It also possesses five well equipped laboratories dedicated to Electronics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology. There is also the Late Shri Narottam Shah library having about 5000+ books and about 50 + periodicals. Not to be taken just as a science lab, the campus also contains a well equipped 200-seat auditorium (with all multimedia facilities), a 500 seat open air auditorium, an exhibition gallery and a sky watching tower. The Community Science Centre and Planetarium also boasts of a fully furnished mechanical workshop that is chiefly used to produce the mathematics models, museum models etc.


The planetarium is open on all days throughout the year except Mondays. The timings are 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.
