ORIEL SCIENCE MUSEUM SEEKS AMBASSADORS
By Sophie Sadler
Swansea University’s Oriel Science will soon be opening the doors to its new venue in the city centre, and is seeking ambassadors to get involved.
The museum will be a hub for interactive science exhibitions, beginning with Movement and Motion and Swansea University’s Response to Covid-19, and will be completely FREE to visit. Modern scientific advances will be brought directly from the University straight to the general public, in a fun and engaging setting. Amongst other things, visitors will be able to show off their skills on the Swansea University Race Car Simulator; measure their arms’ length against the wingspan of a condor; learn how particles can be levitated with ultrasonic speakers; and get an understanding of what goes on inside a hospital during the Covid-19 pandemic by interacting with 3D printed visors and a ventilator. Many other surprises will be contained behind the venue’s doors!
The ambassador role is open to all students enrolled in relevant degree subjects and will involve guiding visitors through the exhibitions, as well as delivering science themed workshops at schools and public events. An application form can be found here:
The venue will be open from 10am-4pm on weekends as well as during school holidays, and will build on Oriel Science’s previous success in 2016-17 when almost 16,000 visitors were entertained during its 100 day exhibition on Time.
