The gallery 'On Air' forms part of the Inspiration project (principally located in The Basement). Inspiration is an innovative new suite of interactive environments designed for age specific groups, in this case teenagers. On Air is an interactive gallery allowing visitors to explore the science behind sound. It gives booked groups the opportunity to record their own five minute radio broadcast using up- to-the-minute technical equipment. Visitors can also mix their own sound track using a computer program and acces a glosary index on sound.
