Fan-favourites return, and new exhibits launch at Wrexham’s Xplore!

Local parents may feel nostalgic upon next visiting a leading family attraction, with a popular exhibit making its return.

Five extra interactive displays have burst onto the scene at Wrexham’s Xplore! Science Discovery Centre UK, offering a mixture of never-before-seen activities, and one reminiscent of when the charity was first established 20 years ago.

After consultations with the community and visitors, the tourist attraction has welcomed the well-loved Plasma Globe to its site for the first time since it rebranded and relocated to Henblas Street in the city centre.

In addition, staff have debuted its Hydrogen Rocket, a sustainably focused exhibit where a rocket is launched to the ceiling through electrolysis, demonstrating how aerospace technologies have advanced beyond fossil fuels.

Xplore!’s projects officer Dawn Pavey said: “We love hearing from the public and learning what they would like to see, and we hope by refreshing what’s on offer they will continue to have distinct experiences upon every visit.

“It’s brilliant to provide a range of exhibits which encompass modern and increasingly important topics like the green agenda, as well as ones which parents may remember from their own childhoods.”

The temporary installations have been made possible through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and will be at the science discovery centre for a four-month period.

In addition to the Plasma Globe and Hydrogen Rocket, the new activities include:

  •      Jacob’s Ladder, which showcases how lightning beams are created.
  •      Light Table, allowing visitors to experiment with how optics behave in different environments.
  •      Soap Bubble Ring, where individuals can stand inside life-size bubble formations.

Dawn added: “We’re looking forward to welcoming new and familiar faces to see the displays, especially as each one is completely different to what we have in-centre at the moment.

“We continue to update our public shows every six weeks, so it’s fantastic to consolidate this by bringing new, engaging opportunities to learn within our exhibition space.”

In addition to more than 80 interactive exhibits, visitors can attend Xplore!’s live shows as part of general admission to the centre.

It will be showcasing its Brilliantly Baffling Brains demonstration from 2 March to 7 April.
