History Heroes’ INVENTORS Quiz Trail
7th October 2016
INVENTORS, History Heroes’ new card game is making an exciting debut at Winchester Science Centre.
Winchester Science Centre is bringing the magic behind inventors and their inventions to life this October. In partnership with History Heroes the museum has devised a fantastic Inventors’ Quiz Trail that runs throughout the Centre. Visitors will be able to follow the trail and discover more about the inventors and inventions behind so much of science.
Visitors collect a dedicated quiz sheet at the museum’s entrance. They have to answer 10 questions that relate to 10 exhibits throughout the Centre. A History Heroes’ Inventor relates to each of the 10 questions and their card stands by the relevant exhibit. Some of the questions can only be answered by gleaning information from the relevant INVENTORS card. Visitors will discover the other answers by taking part in the interactive exhibits and learning from them.
Ben Ward, Director at Winchester Science and Planetarium, explains: ‘Our Quiz Trail will take you on a journey through the major inventions in history and will explain how many of science’s greatest breakthroughs were made. For example, have you ever wanted to know who proved lightening and electricity are the same thing? Or, who invented a hydraulic screw mechanism over 1000 years ago, which is still in use today to raise water from lower to higher levels?’

Ben Ward continues, ‘Our aim is to ensure younger visitors have fun and learn along the way. We hope all members of the families, visiting the Winchester Science Centre this October, will discover a whole world of science they never knew’
Not only will visitors have fun, meet some of our History Heroes and learn from taking part in the Trail and quiz BUT they will also have a chance of winning a History Heroes’ INVENTORS card game. Every week throughout October a winning entry will be pulled out of the Quiz Trail’s postbox. Each week a lucky winner will win one of our INVENTORS games.
The trail is a fantastic opportunity for a great day out with a litte learning along the way for all visitors, big and small. It’s a great way too to meet some of our favourite inventors. We’re very confident you’ll be amazed, gripped and impressed by what they achieved and how their achievements have affected and/or changed all our lives. Hurry, visit the Winchester Science Centre now!
