Plans for Merseyside’s newest attraction Eureka! Science + Discovery take shape

Eureka! Science + Discovery, which opens at Seacombe Ferry Terminal in 2022, is on a mission to inspire and educate young people about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) subjects.

Merseyside’s newest attraction will become a UK hub of science and discovery for children aged 6-14 and will also feature a fun-filled area designed to educate and entertain children from 0-5 years of age.

The team at Eureka! Science + Discovery have been incredibly busy behind the scenes, working with more than 120 young people and community organisations across the Liverpool City Region as part of their co-creation project. These partnerships have contributed to the design and development of exciting exhibition content that will breathe new life into the key STEAM subjects through a range of unique exhibits and interactive experiences.

The £11.75m science and discovery centre has been funded by several partners, including a £6.4m grant from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority’s Strategic Investment Fund.

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said of the investment:

 

“Our museums are an integral part of our world-class offer to visitors - and a key reason why our region is the country’s cultural capital. It’s fantastic that the Eureka! team has chosen us for their first outpost.

As someone who is passionate about skills and technical subjects, I’m especially delighted to see that they’ll be putting a special emphasis on STEAM subjects. Who knows how many engineers and scientists of the future might be inspired by their visits to Eureka! Science + Discovery?”

 
The opening of Eureka! Science + Discovery at Seacombe Ferry Terminal in 2022 is an exciting new chapter for the iconic terminal building, after the closure of Spaceport in 2019, and we can’t wait for the science and discovery centre to open and welcome its first visitors.
