The exhibition shows water from many different perspectives. Although it seems common, it is really an amazing substance with interesting properties. It is the foundation of our life and at the same time an element that humans have always tried to harness. Shall we immerse ourselves in knowledge?
We keep rediscovering the water element and learning how to best harness its potential with electricity-generating river, waves, tides and sea currents. HYDROWORLD demonstrates how pumped-storage power plants accumulate energy and how flow-through power plants obtain it from dammed waters.
The exhibits in this part of Experyment show many interesting properties of liquids. They explain the functioning of ground-breaking inventions, such as the Archimedes’ screw or the Heron’s fountain. Create a water whirlpool, and you’ll know why the water in a sink drain spirals to the right. Does it work the same way on the equator? Build dams and test hydro-technical solutions. Since we are in Gdynia, don’t forget to try our port simulator. Navigate, moor and unload ships with perfect timing. The clock is ticking and still more units are queuing! HYDROWORLD invites you to roll up your sleeves and dive into the wet part of Experyment!
