New Dublin attraction combines scientific exploration with sport
POSTED 08 Jan 2019 . BY Luke Cloherty
A new sport and science centre has opened its doors in Dublin, Ireland, containing more than 300 exhibits and featuring a large Tesla coil room.

Located in the Dublin Mountains, Explorium aims to engage people young and old with science but with a focus on physical activity also at its core.

The Tesla coil – a device created by Nikola Tesla that generates various noises through current flow and can be used to make music – is located in the Lightning Room and is the first publicly usable one in Ireland. Visitors will be able to get as close as 10ft (3m) to the coil.



The 110,000sq ft (10,219sq m) centre is also home to a G-force anti-gravity loop in which visitors are harnessed into a bicycle and rotate 360 degrees on a circular track.

Other features at Explorium include a sports science unit that aims to educate young sportspeople about their physical potential and how to reduce injury risk; the Maker’s Lab that allows guests to create various objects and learn about electric circuits, motors, gears, torque and force transference; and the Senses exhibit, where visitors will learn about bio-electricity, magneto-reception and thermos-reception through their sensory attributes.

Meanwhile, those interested in filmmaking can try out the MovieWorld Studios area and engage with the history of filmmaking, as well as looking at techniques and practices currently used in video content creation.
