The Exhibition

The Exhibition has fantastic hands-on interactive activities. If you were building a windfarm would you know where to place the turbines? Would you know how many blades to give them? Would you be able to balance the country’s energy supply to meet electricity demands? Investigate this and much more!

The Learning Hub is where we host activities and workshops for members of the public and school groups. Find out What's On or get more information on education visits below.
