Interspectral, the Swedish visualisation company, has announced that the Junior Academy of Sciences Ukraine has opened up the first state science museum in the country.
Interspectral’s Inside Explorer is being used inside Ukraine’s first state science museum, helping to bring exhibits to life. The Junior Academy of Sciences Ukraine, a governmental scientific and educational organisation that supports middle and high school students with extracurricular science activities, is behind the project.
The museum officially opened to the public on 3 October. At the opening ceremony, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyj said: “Such a modern interactive museum has appeared in Ukraine – it’s great. You will see that science is cool! Science is on-trend! Science is the top!”
The brand new science museum is home to many interactive exhibits. Visitors can ride a bike on square wheels, walk inside a giant shellfish, watch a scientific hologram, study the wonders of the human body, or take a trip to space.
“The level of creativity that sits within these walls are unimaginable, and we are more than proud to have Inside Explorer being a part of the exhibits on site,” says a statement from Interspectral.
The company began collaborating with the Junior Academy of Sciences more than a year ago and at the start of this year, Inside Explorer was installed on two large smart tables and delivered to the new museum venue in Kyiv. These digital exhibits are now a part of a long-term exhibition, allowing guests to explore interactive 3D visualizations of human and animal anatomy as well as meteorites and insects.
“The Inside Explorer exhibits are very popular among our visitors. We plan to use all its educational functions during our future educational programs,” says Vasyl Dunets, Scientific and Educational Manager at the Science Museum of The Junior Academy of Sciences Ukraine.
The new museum aims to bring new opportunities for science education to the people of Ukraine, providing engaging and fun science experiences to the public.
Earlier this year, Interspectral announced that TELUS World of Science in Edmonton became the first customer in Canada to buy and display Inside Explorer. The museum is now displaying Interspectral’s new Corona exhibition as part of its health exhibition.
