The International Antarctic Centre Is Excited To Join Forces

With Science Alive

This partnership will see us bring a range of inspiring, interactive science exhibits back to life to inspire the next generation of scientific explorers. Learn about the important role Antarctica plays in scientific discovery, including fun activities focused on electricity, astronomy, and technology.

It moved into Christchurch’s Railway Station building on Moorhouse Avenue in 1993, but since the 2011 earthquakes, its interactive exhibits have been exported for temporary displays throughout the world or in storage.

The partnership with the International Antarctic Centre will allow the exhibits and activities to be accessible to the Christchurch community.

Science Alive exhibits will be on display in the International Antarctic Centre.
