Eureka! plans second science attraction in the UK

The CEO of Eureka!, the National Children’s Museum in Halifax, UK, has said plans for a second branded attraction are “advancing well”.

The £11m (US$15.3m €12.5m) project, which has the working name of “Eureka! 2”, is being planned for Liverpool and will focus on children aged between 7 and 14.

Content and galleries at the attraction will look to develop the technical and digital skills of children and teenagers.

Eureka! CEO, Leigh-Anne Stradeski, said the Liverpool site could – if fundraising is successful – open as early as 2021.

To be located on the site adjacent to Liverpool’s Seacombe Ferry Terminal, Eureka! 2 is backed by Merseytravel – which currently runs the site – and Wirral Council, alongside strategic support from the Liverpool City Region Local Economic Partnership and the Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram.

Stradeski made the announcement on the Liverpool project during British Science Week (BSW), which is taking place this week.

“British Science Week is a great moment to reaffirm our commitment to a second Eureka! in the Wirral,” she said.

“We hope it will open the eyes of parents and young people, showing them how anyone from any background can learn and enjoy STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and go on to change and transform the world around us.”

During BSW, Eureka! has been putting on special events and exhibitions, designed to boost interest in STEM subjects by challenging science preconceptions.

One of these is an interactive show called The Secret World of Gases, which includes Liquid Nitrogen “magic” and has been organised in partnership with The Royal Society of Chemistry and BOC, the UK’s biggest industrial and medical gases company.
