MAGNIFISCIENCE FOR EVERYONE

 

Connect with your Science Centre, Support Science for Our Future

MagnifiScience Centre (MSC) is a public service that The Dawood Foundation is providing to the citizens of Karachi and beyond to enable them to explore the wonders of science through unique hands-on learning experiences in a safe, inclusive environment.

As a non-profit, The Dawood Foundation’s MagnifiScience Centre relies on the support of donors, organisations, and philanthropists to make our vision and mission possible. One of the many things that Covid-19 has taught us is the power of science and importance of STEM professionals. Your support and donations will help fulfill our vision of making science accessible for everyone, elevate science literacy, and inspire more generations of STEM learners, scientists, and innovators.

Your contribution, in terms of financial funding, kind or services, is going to help us develop and maintain our exhibits, support our education and outreach programmes, and provide access to MSC to children and schools with limited resources and facilities.

The MagnifiScience Centre is looking to partner with the following:

  • Companies can organize their events at MSC by renting designated spaces within the facility.
