The sole purpose of the Exscite Science Centre is to promote and create awareness about science and technological developments of the modern age. The centre is one of the best places for children because they learn so much from the interactive program that is offered. Exscite actually stand for Explorations in Science and Technology and the aim is to introduce people to science and for the general public to know more about what is in store for us in the future. There are many of us who are vary of science because we see it as a subject that is complicated and confusing, but when you visit the centre you will find that they have simplified the ‘hard stuff’ so that people who are not familiar with scientific facts and jargon can grasp the basic concepts.
The site was opened up in 1992 and was meant to be a temporary exhibition in the Waikato Museum. However, people were so attracted by the concepts and the exhibits that it ran for two years more in a place called Collingwood Court. The site that it is now situated in Hamilton was built in 1995 and then opened to the public in January of 1996. This attraction is extremely child friendly; there are a lot of things that children can participate in. There are a range of exhibits that demonstrate the basic principles of science, theories and scientific discoveries. There are also other shows where international exhibition centres display information and scientific items.
This site is highly recommended for those tourists who are enthusiastic about learning new ideas and concepts. If you are coming along with the family it is even better because you can always keep your children entertained in the interactive spaces available.
