Lastly, earlier this year, we announced plans for our vision of Planetariwm Wales.
In this short video, Tim Smit of the Eden Project explains how a Planetarium here in Hirwaun, Aberdare can be “something that is genuinely world class…”
Wales’ first national planetarium aims to be:
- A landmark visitor attraction with market penetration across the UK and internationally
- A centre for the promotion and support of science, technology, engineering, and maths education across Wales
- A facility for leading-edge research and development in the field of digital visualisation, hosting university graduate and post-graduate courses
- A beacon for Welsh economic development in the field of digital media, fostering relationships with the global industry
- A showcase for the wider redevelopment of the Tower Regeneration estate
- A catalyst for future employment investment and the development of science and technology business along the western section of the Heads of the Valleys corridor
- A centre for the digital delivery of world class entertainment and sporting events
