- I am glad that the Maritime University of Szczecin, together with other universities, is involved in this project, which is so important for the city and the region, reflecting our local character - said Rector Wojciech Ślączka while welcoming the guests.
The heart of the Science Centre will be an exhibition consisting of interactive exhibits, which will enable the visitors to conduct experiments themselves. Additional elements of the exhibition will be original objects as well as parts of vessels and their equipment, models and mock-ups as well as maritime souvenirs.
The sea will be the main theme of the Centre as a subject that allows attractive presentation of the issues within the scope of e.g. physics, mathematics, astronomy, geography, medicine, technology, ecology, sociology, history or culture.
- Presentation of various phenomena based on the examples related to navigation, waves, wind, fishing or port life will make this facility unique in Europe and in the world - said Piotr Kossobudzki responsible for the artistic concept of the permanent exhibition.
- I am really glad that the Maritime Science Centre will have a maritime spirit and will be a tale about the maritime history of our region. The concept of Professor Stelmach is becoming real after so many years. I'd like to express my thanks to the whole community for their involvement and work on the exhibition - said the Province Marshal, Olgierd Geblewicz.
