The International Science Center and Science Museum Day (ISCSMD) is a yearly, global event illustrating the impact and reach of all the world’s science centers and science museums. It demonstrates the role these institutions play with their millions of visitors in raising awareness of—and engagement in—sustainable development and the solutions to worldwide challenges such as climate change, human health, energy, waste, water shortages, gender, oceans, and other global issues.

Science centers and science museums worldwide take the opportunity of this day to celebrate and promote their missions through widely diverse informal science education and engagement activities addressing the critical topics articulated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the world’s nations in late 2015.
The 17 goals were determined through a process of consultation with governments, international entities, the World Bank, the OECD, academia, the business sector, and civil society organizations. The main goals were streamlined to make them achievable over the coming decades. The State of Israel is also acting to achieve these goals.
Activities offered during the event will be related to the UN's SDG no. 4 Quality Education demonstrated via various activities in the newly opened exhibition Leonardo's Questions and Leonardo’s in-depth research and learning, based on personal experience, resulted in discoveries, insights, and ideas that continue to impact on various spheres of our lives to this very day.
Leonardo’s insatiable curiosity lies at the heart of this unique exhibition, including his thought patterns from childhood to adulthood. The exhibition incorporates Leonardo’s guiding principles, questioning, observing and recording.
Visitors are invited to enjoy a variety of guided tours (including in English) of the recently opened exhibition; to ask questions, observe, and draw; and take part in construction workshops just as Leonardo did. Unique exhibits on display were constructed on the basis of Leonardo’s sketches, such as the famous glider. Visitors are also invited to take part in scientific demonstration in Leonardo's Theatre; and both parents and children are invited to enjoy hands-on workshops.
