W5 at Odyssey
W5 is an interactive science and discovery centre packed full of over 250 exhibits, all of which you experience hands on. Featuring four worlds, ‘Start’ for under eights, which showcases a customisable mini in the garage, ball cannons in the water world and much more. ‘Go’ features exhibits exploring health, hygiene, genetics and forces – with the opportunity to build and race your own K’nex car, make magnets and have a go on pulley chairs. ‘See’ features exhibits focussed on biodiversity and creativity – you can try your hand at making a cartoon or edit a newspaper. The last world is ‘Do’ and here you’ll bring robots to life, become a weather person and design a wind turbine. It really is a wonderful place to explore and one that will keep children happy for hours.
