Jeddah Science and Technology Center

Saudi Arabia desires to become a world leader in sciences and technology. This past year KAUST (King Abdullah University for Sciences and Technology) opened in the hopes that it will in the next few years become the number one post graduate center for study and research in those fields. I haven’t made it out to this amazing institution yet, but I hope to soon. In the meantime, this is a photo of the Jeddah Science and Technology Center, designed to spark young minds to develop interests in the various fields of science. I haven’t been there yet, but I hear it’s pretty cool.

    It was so cool. I enjoyed it a lot as a child and believe it helped me and a lot of people. Unfortunately it wasn’t making any profits so it has to be shut down. A great facility like this should be open for public for free. I’m afraid the building might be converted to a mall, that makes fast money. Education doesn’t

    Yeah … it’s true ,,, it’s closed. It’s was originally donated by a business man to the city. it seems he got greedy and wanted to get back his piece of land so he can build his own high rise building, like every body else… sciences what! sciences my balls that what he said to jeddah’s mayor … LOL.

    I lived about 3 minutes from there. I could see it through my bedroom window!
    I really dug the dinosaur exhibitions they used to hold there.
    Truly an awesome place of what I remember of it.
