Betwixtmas? Chrimbo Limbo? The Norwegians even call it Romjul. No one quite knows what the period between Christmas and New Year is but at Winchester Science Centre it is guaranteed to be explosive, exciting and awe-inspiring! From Sunday 27 December 2020 to Monday 4 January 2021, including New Year’s Day, visitors can experience dancing fire in a free live science show, a journey into the stars in the Planetarium, seasonal nature activities in the indoor/outdoor experimentation zone and exciting interactive exhibits in the brand new immersive sound and hearing exhibition.
The Science Centre Inspirers will be back for another exciting free live science show, Sounds Like Science, where they will be delving into the science behind the sounds through intriguing demos and fun audience participation. In the Planetarium, audiences can settle in to experience not one but two mesmerising live shows. Ideal for younger audiences is Simply Space which will transport viewers on a journey through the night sky, And in The Planet Show, visitors will begin their adventure on Earth marvelling at the constellations above them before being whisked into orbit to experience the impressive scale of the Solar System.
And that’s not all! Head over to the indoor/outdoor experimentation zone, Bio:Space, to take part in some winter-themed nature activities, be wowed by the explosive demos in Science LIVE and embark on an exhilarating adventure through the Science Centre’s brand new interactive sound, hearing and vibration exhibition. Venture into an enormous 10m long guitar to feel the vibrations, experience the wonder of acoustics inside the sonic rocket and climb inside a giant ear to explore its inner workings. Laugh and learn together by making sounds in the huge echo tubes, discover more about decibels, rhythm and frequency and try your hand at British Sign Language. You can even join the rescue crew to save Humphrey the Humpback Whale and meet the experts in our bringing Research to Life zone, plus so much more!
