The Fascinating Glasgow Science Centre

Overlooking the Clyde in all its glory stands the magnificent titanium arc of the Glasgow Science Centre. Within this building you will find the Science Mall, a true hub of knowledge. The Science Centre spans over three floors, all crammed with exhibitions waiting to be investigated, live science shows, interactive workshops and labs. One of the most popular features is the Scottish Power Planetarium which is based on the first floor of the Glasgow Science Center. At the planetarium the night sky and its mysterious world are brought to life by the controlled environment and Zeiss Starmaster pojector.

On the first floor of the Glasgow Science Centre visitors can participate in workshops, undergo a
science theatrical live show or come into contact with tons of hands-on
exhibitions. On the second floor there are more workshops including the opportunity to create 3D models of different body parts. Lastly, on the third floor
you will find more exhibits such as the indoor tornado and the whirlpool, with the mammoth Plasma Globe which allows you to create indoor
lightning, not forgetting the unique bubble wall.

The Glasgow Science Centre Imax theatre also holds one of the most mind-blowing screens and
carries a digital sound system with an immense power. This amazing piece of digital art shows films in 2D and 3D format
using its capabilities through its camera to show the entire world system
like it has never been seen before.

Lastly the Glasgow Tower cabin is set to unrival anything you have ever
experienced in this rollercoaster ride of science glory. Within two and a
half minutes ride you will be transported to views of Glasgow city beyond
normal human comprehension. The Glasgow Tower is open during normal times
under usual weather conditions, though should the winds pick up over forty
miles per hour the tower has to be closed.
