Energy Discovery Center exposition

The mission of the Energy Discovery Center is to stimulate interest in science and understanding of technology through fascinating experiments. For example, in the science theater, you can get a glimpse of liquids and learn about comparative tension, the refraction of light and gravity, and the properties of steam. The theater program is suitable for children of all ages.

The exposition of the Energy Center is located on several floors. Many of the exhibits are interactive, making a visit to the institution even more interesting. Thrill seekers can walk through a mirror labyrinth or lie on real nails.

In the planetarium of the Energy Discovery Center, visitors can get an idea of the structure of the solar system. The planetarium is located in a spherical room with a 10-meter dome, which holds the starry sky with all the constellations of the solar system. Visitors to the workshops are invited to explore shadows and snowflakes, as well as mathematical figures.

Several times a day, a real lightning bolt is triggered in the laboratory. At the same time, visitors are told about the nature of this phenomenon. Visitors can also try to generate electricity themselves with the help of improvised materials.
