Welcome to a place where you can dive deep into the science behind some of the changes we are seeing in our surroundings. Experience how the smallest of actions can have a big impact on the world around you. Our exhibits are both thought-provoking and fully interactive, so you can find new answers to big questions. This is where you play to change the game.
In nature, everything is connected – air, land, water. As you explore Earth Matters, look out for the connections along the way. Solve complex challenges and push your own ideas to new heights. Then rethink what the future could look like.
Note that due to capacity restrictions, online bookings are essential. We advise you to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.
Understand our relationships with natural ecosystems through interaction and immersion.
Experience a live three-dimensional coral reef with visually stunning projections. How will the choices you make impact the marine habitat in front of you?
Explore electricity generation, storage and transfer in this fun and engaging exhibit. Using pedal generators, produce electricity to light up a central townscape. Share excess energy with a neighbour to watch the town come alive.
Through augmented reality, compare the carbon emissions of different modes of transport. Explore the impact of our choices when it comes to how we move and travel around.
The exhibition has been co-designed with local students and adults who were keen to explore how STEM skills and technology can work together to creatively solve complex problems we see around us.
Hand-picked entrepreneurs and forward-thinkers share their stories of lightbulb moments leading to their journeys - from identifying a need, critical thinking and their own design process right through to production.
Our working world is a fine balance of human needs intertwined with complex natural ecosystems. Uncover the relationships, discover the challenges and find new ways to evolve our lifestyle to fit our changing landscapes.
