The Fire Pavilion creates a blaze in which to experience the awesome five metre fire tornado, the arc furnace and the electromagnetic crane. These are just some of the amazing attractions available to touch, feel and investigate in this pavilion.
Make cables glow red hot and paint heat patterns with your hands. Melt steel and race with an electromagnetic crane. Feel the flow of heat, watch crystals as they melt and find out how heat causes change.
All the exhibits at Magna provide hands-on learning, links to steelmaking and consider the impact humans have made.
The Four Pavilions
The steel industry of South Yorkshire has its roots in Roman times when iron was made from rocks extracted from the EARTH locally. FIRE was used to smelt the iron ore. AIR was used to aid combustion. Later the rivers provided WATER for cooling and powering machinery and the steel industry grew to dominate the area.
