Winchester Science Centre is the leading science attraction in the South of England.
There are over 100 hands-on exhibits each one on a different aspect of science and technology. So you can operate cranes, compose electronic music, build electrical circuits and see your body’s hot spots with a thermo-imaging camera. The list goes on and on. The new sport activity zone is full of unusual interactive exhibits, like moving a ball with just your brain waves, wheelchair basketball and a short race track with a photo of your start.
The Science Centre also has the UK’s largest capacity Planetarium. This is a cinema with a vast dome screen. The image is all around you so that the effect can be like floating in space. The planetarium uses state of the art digital images and a cinema standard sound system. It is a unique experience. See website for the range of shows and offer and the daily schedule.
