An initiative designed to promote interactive, hands-on educational information centers makes science more accessible. The main target audience is primary and high-school pupils. The children are invited to the Teva Haviada centers either as part of a classroom trip or accompanied with their parents. In the Haviada centers, there is a wealth of opportunity to learn and to become familiar with the world of science. Learning is through hands-on operation of the exhibits, guided tours, workshops, classes and science camps. Nine Teva Haviada centers are in operation in the Israeli cities and a mobile Teva Haviada center is active in the north of Israel.
