Sign up for our upcoming documentaries filmmaking workshop in Cairo!
SciTech is applying a new project with ONA Academy #Cairo24 where they will shoot all over Cairo day and night in order to monitor the story of the city and its people based in the #Berlin24 #documentary project
The new SciTech episode is online now: A marvelous journey to outer space! Meet Ahmed Farid, an Egyptian who works for the International Space Station and get a look behind the scenes at the astronomical observatory in Kottamia near Cairo which has the largest telescope in the Middle East!
A new article in the Times of Oman documents the current film shootings of the SciTech team in the Sultanate of Oman. The special focus of this year’s topics was the South of Oman, mainly the region around Salalah.
Film shoots for the new upcoming season in Cairo took place the past two weeks. On a rooftop at Cairo University, scientists collect data from a meteorological station. The researchers have an ambitious vision to make it rain in Egypt with the help of heat islands.

Most of the area belonging to the German state of Brandenburg today is called Lower Lusatia (Niederlausitz or Dolna Łužyca) and is characterised by forests and meadows. In the course of much of the 19th and the entire 20th century, it was shaped by extensive coal mining.
Today, the abandoned mining areas are recultivated. The ground is shaped by natural forces like rain and wind and constitutes an important biosphere reserve.
Many birds, insects and other animals find refuge and breeding grounds here.

Make your own laser cutter?! Sounds wired?! The Egyptian team from icealex which is part of the “ice” network showed how it works! At the Berlin based conference re:publica14 #rp14.
Make your own laser cutter is part of the idea of the so-called “maker culture”. The maker culture is a new Do-It-Yourself culture which develops innovative products and prototypes with the help of modern technology. The goal is to solve technical problems with existing resources.
The ice network which is based in Cairo, Alexandria, Addis Ababab and Weimar supports young inventors with technical equipment such as 3D printer, CNC tools or laser cutters. But they also organize workshops on how to make your project come real!
The SciTech crew was there to cover the event and meet the Egyptian inventors!
