Underwater Agents

Did you know that almost three quarters of the world’s surface is covered by water? But what lies beneath the deep blue seas? And what sounds can be found? 

Come on a splash-tastic journey below the surface of the world's oceans. Experience a brand new free live science show, Underwater Agents, part of our 2021 Year of Sound. 

From Saturday 17 July to Sunday 19 September come and join a top adventure squad of underwater agents. Help uncover the mysteries of the sounds that lurk beneath the deep. Explore how sound travels underwater. Discover why human ears aren’t great at picking up sounds under the surface. And find out what natural and man-made sounds we might find beneath the waves.

And this wouldn’t be a Winchester Science Centre show without some explosive wow moments. Get set for some awesome live science with fun audience participation and exciting demos.

A sound sensory (SS) suitable show is available for those with sensitivities to loud noises.

Show times are:

10:30am, 11:30am, 1:00pm and 2:30pm (SS)

And don't miss these other exciting things to do during your visit...

Summer Skies Planetarium Shows

The days may be longer but in the UK's largest standalone Planetarium, the night sky is always putting on a show. 

Blast off into space for the family adventure of the summer in Solar System Adventure, a live Planetarium show. With hundreds of moons, eight planets, five dwarf planets and one Sun to explore, where will the journey take you?

And there's not one but two 360o fulldome film shows available this summer, both of which are subtitled. 

From 17 July to 8 August, Vladimir the polar bear and James the penguin are off exploring in Polaris, the space submarine and the mystery of the polar night. Journey with them beyond the Earth to study the planet as a whole and to compare it to others in our solar system. 

And from 9 August to 19 September, join Celeste and Moon as they zoom off on an out-of-this-world adventure. Explore with them in Beyond the Sun and discover more about exoplanets, rogue planets, oceanic worlds and super-Earths. 

All of our Planetarium shows are suitable for the whole family. Both live shows and film shows offer a relaxed environment and are chatterbox shows. We understand that the Planetarium is an unusual and exciting experience so feel free to call out, ask questions or talk to your group about what you see.

Show times are:

Solar System Adventure (live show) - 10:15am, 12:15pm, 1:45pm and 3:45pm

Polaris (subtitled film show, 17 July to 8 August) - 11:15am, 1:00pm and 2:45pm

Beyond the Sun (subtitled film show, 9 August to 19 September) - 11:15am, 1:00pm and 2:45pm

Bio:Space

Make the most of the warmer summer days, or embrace the unpredictable rainy British weather, with some outdoor activities. Take part in some exciting activities, both inside and outside, themed around the summer season and the Science Centre’s stunning South Downs National Park location. Kids will also love the outdoor adventure playground and trim trail and there’s lots of space to enjoy a picnic surrounded by nature.

Our friends from Butterfly Conservation will also be joining us at the beginning of the summer for some extra special activities including butterfly trails, guided walks and moth viewings.

Make sure you bring a coat so that you can enjoy our activities outside even if it's raining! 

BIO:SPACE can be found behind our Gravity Run exhibit, next to the café, and is open all day.
