Esplora Interactive Science Centre first opened its doors to a world of wonder and discovery seven years ago. We started an amazing journey of scientific inquiry and community participation since this historic day. Today, we are proud to celebrate our seventh year anniversary with you, our cherished community, and we invite you to join us for a celebration during this weekend between 10am and 5pm. This special event is dedicated to our esteemed visitors, who have been the heart and soul of our mission to bring the magic of science to our communities.


The event reflects our unwavering dedication to creating a better world through science and education. We firmly believe that by uniting our efforts, we can identify innovative ways to act towards a more sustainable and environmentally conscious future.

During these two-day celebrations, we’re thrilled to bring together environmental NGOs, dedicated researchers and scientists who are working tirelessly to find innovative solutions for a sustainable future. During the event, visitors can discover practical ways to reduce their carbon footprint, learn about the latest advancement in climate science and engage with local research initiatives aimed at preserving our planet.


Milestones and achievements

Throughout these last seven years, our centre has grown, boasting over 200 interactive exhibits that have captured the imagination of curious minds of all ages. But our journey goes beyond our walls; it extends into the heart of our community. We’ve been fortunate to foster valuable partnerships that have enriched our commitment to science and Steam education.

Esplora Interactive Science Centre has evolved to become an integral part of our community, hosting numerous events and outreach programmes aimed at spreading the love of science. We’ve gone into local schools, engaging with eager young students and visited elderly homes, bringing the joy of science to older generations. We’ve actively taken part in local festivals and activities, making science a part of the celebration. Our mission is to make science accessible to all and your unwavering support has been the driving force behind our journey.

Esplora’s dedication to innovation, education and scientific achievement is steadfast. Together with you, our esteemed visitors, we look forward to celebrating and moving forward on our path to a better, sustainable future. We appreciate you being a member of the Esplora family and we are eager  to share  our celebrations with you. Our journey is far from over and we are excited about the future. Here’s to seven years of scientific excellence and to many more years of exploration, wonder and discovery.
