Techmania Science Center
Techmania Science Center (originally The Regional Technical museum) was established by The ŠKODA HOLDING joint-stock company and the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen with the intention to build a modern, interactive museum (often known as a science center) in the industrial estate of Škoda Company.
Techmania Science Center is based on exhibits that explain a particular mathematical or physical principle by means of game-like activities. The interactivity involves visitors making the exhibits move, so the natural principle will be demonstrated by the particular process. In these cases, learning is based on personal experience.
The goal of the project Techmania Science Center is to help the public, especially young people, get more familiar with the development of human knowledge and show how it is used in technology. The next aim is to introduce the present limits of human knowledge and point out the unanswered questions for which the next generation, the young visitors of the science center, will find answers.
