The future of science centre exhibitions

What is the future of science centre exhibitions? Do we need to stick to scientific phenomena, or focus on high tech and current science? Do we concentrate on objects or interaction? Or are physical exhibitions becoming obsolete in the digital era?

Join a debate in the House of Commons style: each presenter defends a short statement on their vision for the future of science centre exhibitions. Then you, the audience, choose a side: do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?
