Aurangabad is well known as Maratwada’s financial Capital. Aurangabad city is recognized on the world map for its rich historical, cultural and industrial significance. MGM’s APJ Abdul Kalam Astrospace and Science Centre is an addition to Aurangabad’s diversified and rich heritage.
Upcoming young generation is well equipped with technological advancements but it is necessary to make them aware of the basic science and its applications in daily life.
The main objective of MGM’s APJ Abdul Kalam Astrospace and Science Centre is to open doors of the mysterious world of science to everyone.
Various galleries are erected serving this purpose:

The 3D Experience can be described as 'the most powerful and involving film experience possible'. The difference between the 3D Experience and watching a film at a conventional cinema is the feeling that you don't merely watch a film - you feel as if you are actually there. The key to this experience is cinema's largest film frame, being projected by most sophisticated projector onto a huge screen that encompasses the viewer's peripheral vision.
The new Full Dome Digital Planetarium is the most advanced digital planetarium in Marathwada region. This is multi-functional digital technology in Aurangabad city - creating a space of innovation and discovery; where art, science and entertainment meet. This digital full dome theatre provides audiences with an unequalled experience of animation and 360◦ cinema; as well as making virtual exploration of the universe.
Holography is the science and practice of making holograms. Typically a hologram is a photographic recording of a light field, rather than of an image formed by a lens, and it is used to display a fully three- dimensional image of the holographed object.
It is said that, “Practical is always better than written knowledge”. I visited this science center
on occasion of science day and thoroughly enjoyed all practicals, information and especially the
astronomy department. Every student should visit this center at least once to enjoy the beauty of
science , technology and maths.
